Georgia - Vocally they are blameless. They have a lot of presence and can be the big surprise of the night, if they please an older age group and the jury. MAYBE
Poland - The act is not very impressive and the movement with the hands to imitate waves seems very repetitive. MAYBE
Malta - Despite all that was thought the acting was pretty well thought out and can work great on the screen. MAYBE
Hungary - For those who like rock is the perfect performance, for those who do not like it so much will be surprised. They fill the stage. YES
Latvia - Latvia does not look bad on stage, although it seems the stage is too much for its performance. There are things missing in this performance. NO
Sweden - Perfect for a first rehearsal. Everything was thought with all the details. Top 5 again for sure. YES
Montenegro - Predictable!! too much! It looks like a wedding... or....well... we don't think so, but MAYBE
Slovenia - We had big expectations for this song as we thought Slovenia could be in the final... In the second third of the song, Lea pretends the music failed - If they were already in the final, it may work... but if the reach the final, it won't be a surprise since everyone watched it in the semi. With Barei from Spain (2016) it didn't work. Why should now? NO
Ukraine - Are vampires alive? Is this a sci-fy thing? MELOVIN looks like a vampire coming from a piano that opens... we can describe it, but you have to see it. MAYBE.... 'because it is Ukraine

Ola Melzig arrived from Sweden to Lisbon, 9 months ago to work in Eurovision as director of technical production.
In a interview to the portuguese media Diario de Noticias he left very good impressions about the work of the portuguese staff in a country he didn't know very well, since he brought with him an espresso machine: "It was before knowing the great nation of coffee that Portugal is".
About the portuguese people he says: Maybe they are not the best people to show up at a meeting time (laughs).They are very friendly and open, generous. When we started, Carla Bugalho (Portuguese head of delegation) said: "We are Atlantic, not Mediterranean. They will see that there is a difference." And there is. The delivery of work is very accurate. We received exactly what we asked for. They are very proud of the country. In love. If they like, they involve 110%.
Ola predicted the winner last year and about this time he says: "This year is treacherous. Israel stands out, the singer is very cool, has a lot of attitude, but if she does not perform at the same level, another ten may appear. It's too early to tell. Overall, there are very good songs."
