Time for the panel to decide what we think about the songs in semi-final two.
1. Lithuania: “Here We Go” – PeR
Dennis: Lithuania’s stylist certainly hit a jackpot. It feels a bit Waterloo-inspired. However, the song is not an ABBA-classic at all. Unfortunatley. To talk your way through a song never worked. 2 points.
Sofia: Bad Robbie Williams-copy. He doesn’t know what he’s doing. 2 points for the glitter.
Julie: I like the chorus and the outfits. The rap isn’t the best though. 3 points.
2. San Marino: “Crisalide” – Valentina Monetta
Dennis: San Marino marches into ESC with a slow-tempo song. Pee break time. 3 points.
Sofia: Last year Valentina was funny. This is just bad. 1 point.
Julie: I don’t understand the video, and hope for a better stage performance. Don’t really like the song so far. 2 points.
3. Macedonien: “Pred Da Se Razdeni” – Esma & Lozano
Dennis: A failed sing-along song. Disaster. 1 point.
Sofia: It could have been so much better. Instead it feels like a wierd after party. 2 points.
Julie: I am so confused… It feels like to decent songs, made into one and it isn’t bad, but not good either. 2 points.
4. Azerbaijan: “Hold me” – Farid Mammadov
Dennis: Azerbaijan sends a song depending on its looks. It is harmonic and sounds a bit like Yohio’s song from the Swedish Melodifestivalen. I like it! 5 points.
Sofia: The poor guy is crying. Well, he is hot, so 3 points.
Julie: I like Farid and the chorus really hits a nerve in me. 4 points.
5. Finland: “Marry Me” – Krista Siegfrids
Dennis: Sounds like Gwen Steffani mixed with Christmas-carol-pop. You can do better Finland! 2 points.
Sofia: A dorky, Finnish Katy Perry. Not my taste, but I do think it can make it to the final. 2 points.
Julie: Modern gum-pop and I like it! I hope for a good show, that could make it or break it. 4 points.
6. Malta: “Tomorrow” – Gianluca Bezzina
Dennis: It is called “Tomorrow”, but I do not want to see this or hear this either today or tomorrow. 2 points.
Sofia: I like this. He is a sweet guy that goes through the screen. I hope for a nice routine. 4 points.
Julie: Sweet song and sweet guy, but I fear it will be boring live. I think Swedish people will like this song, it has a Swede-pop feel. 3 points.
7. Bulgaria: “Samo Shampioni” (Only Champions) – Elitsa & Stoyan
Dennis: Eh, say what? Middle Easter-pop that failed. 1 point.
Sofia: I shouldn’t say boring, but so bad! What is this. 0 points.
Julie: I don’t know what to think… What is up with this song, and the routine? The happy guy with all the drums, the bag-pipe dude and the singers jacket? Ugh. 1 point.
8. Iceland: “Ég į Lķf” – Eyžór Ingi Gunnlaugsson
Dennis: Iceland signs in the native tongue – so beautiful. Extra points for that. 3 points.
Sofia: Half-cozy but it needs more action to make it to the final. 2 points.
Julie: A pretty song, but it is to slow and to calm to get attention in the semi-final I think. 2 points.
9. Greece: “Alcohol Is Free” – Koza Mostra and Agathonas Iakovidis
Dennis: Alcohol is Free? Is this a political message, because I don’t get it. No no no. 0 points.
Sofia: Not a winner but a fresh song in a so far not impressive competition. 3 points.
Julie: Greek men in kilt? Who will give me free alcohol? Hey, the singer is cute, it makes me wanna dance and somehow it is charming. 4 points
10. Israel: “Rak Bishvilo” – Moran Mazor
Dennis: Another girl in a long dress singing a slow ballad. Not working. Bad and more bad. 1 point.
Sofia: I don’t understand a word, but I love Israel’s Adele. 4 points.
Julie: Horrible dress, but she gets my attention. Powerful. 3 points.
11. Armenia: “Lonely Planet” – Dorians
Dennis: Feels like a very patriotic song, which makes it a no no. 1 point.
Sofia: Not a bad song, but pale. Not making it to the final. 2 points.
Julie: One of those “save the planet and change the world”-song, and I do not fancy it. Sorry Dorians. 2 points.
12. Hungary: “Kedvesem” (Zoohacker Remix) – ByeAlex
Dennis: Feels like they tried to do a Beatles song and failed massivly. One of the worst songs. 1 point.
Sofia: Another cutie-song. Not my cup of tea. 2 points.
Julie: I don’t understand anything, and in this case that is not a good thing. 1 point.
13. Norway: “I Feed You My Love” – Margaret Berger
Dennis: Norway falls flat, however Sweden will probobly givet hem their 12 point, so I give her 3 points.
Sofia: Yummy! Hot girl, pretty boring song if you think about it, but I think it has something that the competitions lacks. 5 points.
Julie: I love this song. I love Margarete. It is so cool, fresh and yet is so simple. 5 points.
14. Albania: “Identitet” – Adrian Lulgjuraj & Bledar Sejko
Dennis: Stop singing hysterical death-rock songs. 1 point.
Sofia: Not what I will spend three minutes on. Pee break. 1 point.
Julie: I am a rock girl. But this is just not good. 1 point.
15. Georga: “Waterfall” – Nodi Tatishvili & Sophie Gelovani
Dennis: Another dress. Another girl. Not working this time either. Pee break. 2 points.
Sofia: So cheesy it will make it to the final. But pale and dull? 2 points.
Julie: I like this a lot. It is a duet that can become really nice on stage. True Eurovision power! 5 points.
16. Schwitzerland: “You And Me” – Takasa
Dennis: A modern version of “Hardrock Halleluja”. Doesn’t fit the competition. 1 point.
Sofia: Sing-along feel. Will get stuck on your mind for sure. 3 points.
Julie: Could be better on stage if they do a good show. But right now I am not impressed. 2 points.
17. Rumania: “It’s My Life” – Cezar
Dennis: A more sleazy guy is hard to find. Il Divo but single? 10 points for the outfit but 3 points for the song.
Sofia: Looked away for a second and expected a fat lady. Looked towards the screen and … What the ? Confused. 1 point.
Julie: He loses me after two seconds, he signs so bad. Come on. Come up with something new, and better. 1 point.
