    >- Macedonia kicked out in favor of Finland and Croatia for Serviais understandable even if Finland ended up last.- Yes Czechia nil points again, ouch. How much more beating before they bow out?- And Sweden must have been robbed by the jurys as they were 4th in their semi, wonder why?

    >I think peculiarly Czechia is going to hold out for a few more contests, before giving up the ghost. Just wait until they get into the same semi with Slovakia. (And if Austria re-enters…oy).The Semis were again really unbalanced in terms of quality (so to speak). Semi 1, again, had a few good songs and a lot of ones that got in by just being not bad. Semi 2 on the other hand was a blood bath.
