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

5. In 2010, several incidents caused rumours of anger control problems. During the rehearsal for the Melodi Grand Prix finals in Bærum, Rybak became so infuriated when a sound technician was not doing what he wanted, that he smashed his own hand, breaking his fingers. Also, during rehearsals for Swedish television in June 2010, he smashed his violin on the floor. But that’s only rumours!
In 2017 he made one of the most notable covers of Salvador Sobral “Amar pelos Dois”:

At the same night like Sweden the other nordic country and the host of 2010 hosted the national final.

The song will bring the norwegian flag to Eurovision in Portugal 2018.
So it's once again a former winner going to Eurovision. We will see how he will make it.
