Eurovision 2012: First Qualifiers Put Into DrawWritten by Marc Calleja Bayliss
The first semi-final of the 2012 edition of the Eurovision Song Contest has just come to an end and for the very first time in years it seems that the people are somewhat happy with the outcome in terms of qualifiers with ten (10) nations passing through to the next stage of the competition which will be held on Saturday evening where a total of twenty-six (26) countries will be competing to take home the honour of winning the prestigious music event which is the most followed non-sporting celebration in the world. From our standpoint it seems that our reviewers of the evening got most of the qualifiers right with Raquela managing to predict seven, Claudia managing to predict eight and Emil managing to get nine right. In the meantime, the experts and the readers of our website correctly predicted seven entries through this evening with Switzerland, Latvia and Finland put through instead of Russia, Albania and Moldova.
Just a reminder that this evenings' qualifiers were announced in no particular order. In the meantime, we would like to point out that the final envelope which has become the 'golden envelope' does not hold any special significance but they just wanted to add the suspense in general for the last qualifier which this year were none other than Jedward and their entry Waterline for Ireland. Here comes a reminder of the qualifiers this evening in the order that they were announced whilst we await the draw for their final starting positions to take place. The press conference is now being shown on the official website which you can follow here. The announcements will be made in the way that they were announced this evening.
