Norway - Alexander was in charge to open the day. The winnner of 2009 brings nothing new on stage compared to his national final. But he has a lot of chances to keep the Top 10. YES
Romania - Vocally and has a surprise was very nice. Sometimes we loose the singer behind the manequin. Being Romania and her always oportunity to get votes from diaspora it is certain than they will be in the final. YES
Serbia - The performance of Serbia has nothing really new from it's typical performances. They will get points from the other countries. YES
San Marino - The robots were a bit different than the ones from the national final. Even this semifinal is not the strong one, there will be more chances for the public/jury to vote than in this one. NO
Denmark - The Viking option did a good rehearsal. The vocal performance was perfect. YES
Russia - This rehearsal was the one with more comments at the press centre, negative we might say. We think that they wil go on to the final, because it's Russia. It may be a YES for let´s keep it as a MAYBE
Moldova - This is the most interactive and dynamic performance of this years Eurovision performances. The expectations were high after last years third place and know they did it. Well done Moldova. YES
Netherlands - One of the best performers of the year and one of the best songs! Maybe they should have keep the performance as a country thing and not include the dancers. MAYBE
Australia - The song is very nice as we know and it works very well on stage even if her singing skills were not the best today. Was Jessica shy? Or was she taking care of her voice? YES
