Three words to start: ARE! YOU! READY!!!

Will Raivis baked the cake to his fellow Baltics? Will Estonia show his AMAZING performance with his mochis on stage? Will Su-san regained the crown this year (or undo his love for Tino)? Will Iceland do his rocking performance? Can Ivan shine through? Can Big Sis Ukraine and her hamster wheel roll the competition? And can Hungary advance with her epic performance? Find out TONIGHT!!

The roster (in draw number order):
Armenia, Latvia, Estonia, Sweden (last year's host), Iceland, Albania, Russia, Azerbaijan, Ukraine, Belgium, Moldova, San Marino, Portugal, The Netherlands, Montenegro and Hungary

Boss Spain, Big Bro France, and Denmark (the host) will will vote in the semi-final and the top ten countries will advance to the Grand Final on Saturday (Sunday in Manila).

I was worried there would be no party this year. Glad to see I was wrong! Sadly, I haven't been able to find a good BBC stream (I guess iPlayer is a delay?); so, I can't paraphrase the snarky commentary at least for this semi, but I'll be around to swap thoughts with everyone~

So, who do people like this year? I honestly haven't watched any of the entries yet; so, I'll be going in blind, which will be a fun change of pace, I suppose.
6th-May-2014 06:13 pm (UTC)
i also go in blind for everything other than the nordics hahah. as far as the nordics go though, i guess iceland is my favourite at the moment because it's at least a little funny (though it wasn't my favourite from their national contestants ;q; )... but i may warm up to the others more when i hear them again too (9w9

Good to see you again.
6th-May-2014 06:07 pm (UTC)
Hi y'all! I was also worried there wasn't going to be a party this year but I'm so happy we're having one! It's nice to be back with everyone again :D

*lurks while eating a late lunch*

Hello all! I'm so glad we're having a posting party again, my yearly ESC experience wouldn't be the same without it.
6th-May-2014 06:20 pm (UTC)
I know! Eurovision wouldn't be the same without this lovely group of people to share it with~
6th-May-2014 06:18 pm (UTC)
So, I have to ask like I do every year, what are everyone's favorite songs?

My top ones with this year are Armenia (for the first time ever, I think), France, Germany, Israel, Italy, Poland, Spain and the UK. :3

And Hungary! I can't forget Hungary, I'll be rooting for her, too!

Only 32 minutes left before the party starts! Are you guys prepare your snacks?
6th-May-2014 06:35 pm (UTC)
Of course! I just wish I'd baked a cake for this :3 ^-~
6th-May-2014 06:34 pm (UTC)
I feel like I need to figure out who everybody is! I know a few of you but I can't figure out some of your usernames D: I was 'eyelashonmycheek' then 'freckledot' then 'impalatalia' then 'nevillina' and now 'buckbees' on tumblr. Who's everybody else? ((Sorry my memory is terrible))
6th-May-2014 06:37 pm (UTC)
I've always been 'illuweaver' around LJ and Twitter, and I don't have a Tumblr. This would be my 3rd year celebrating Eurovision w/ Eurotalia.
6th-May-2014 06:40 pm (UTC)
Twenty minutes!
6th-May-2014 06:47 pm (UTC)
Fourteen minutes! I hope we'll see Emmelie open the show.
6th-May-2014 06:50 pm (UTC)
6th-May-2014 06:51 pm (UTC)
Ten minutes, everyone! How is everyone going to be watching today? I've got the Eurovision livestream up on the site.
6th-May-2014 06:53 pm (UTC)
That's the way I'm watching it. I love how they're looping behind the scenes and pre-contest event stuff this year before it starts.
6th-May-2014 06:53 pm (UTC)
Hi everyone :) I feel so unprepared for eurovision this year, I haven't listened to the songs! It will add surprise I suppose!

Four minutes! It feels like Eurovision is being held a bit earlier this year, somehow…
6th-May-2014 06:59 pm (UTC)
It's now 9:00 PM in Copenhagen, Denmark! Let's do this! :D
6th-May-2014 07:00 pm (UTC)

*emotions intensify* Denmark, make it a good show!
6th-May-2014 07:01 pm (UTC)
Here we go! Customary question: where is everybody from?

I'm from Slovakia but moved to UK last year so I'll be watching the BBC version.
