Eurovision 2009 : The 2nd Semi Final

By Krikor K.

The 2009 Eurovision's 2nd Semi Final took place yesterday, May 14th 2009 inside the Olimpiyskiy Arena. Hosts, once more, were Natalia Vodianova and Andrey Malahov.

The director's job was by far better in the 2nd Semi Final, comparing to the 1st one, and the stage seemed more amazing!

19 countries took part in the 2nd Semi Final. The show started with the Croatian entry... The last country to perform was The Netherlands...

Here are the qualifying countries :
  • Azerbaijan - AySel & Arash - Always
  • Croatia - Igor Cukrov feat. Andrea - Lijepa Tena
  • Ukraine - Svetlana Loboda - Be my Valentine! (Anti-crisis girl)
  • Lithuania - Sasha Son - Love
  • Albania - Kejsi Tola - Carry me in your dreams
  • Moldova - Nelly Ciobanu - Hora din Moldova
  • Denmark - Brinck - Believe again
  • Estonia - Urban Symphony - Rändajad
  • Norway - Alexander Rybak - Fairytale
  • Greece - Sakis Rouvas - This is our night

The eliminated countries are:

  • Ireland
  • Latvia
  • Serbia
  • Poland
  • Cyprus
  • Slovakia
  • Slovenia
  • Hungary
  • Netherlands
Big surprise, as it was turned out, was Cyprus which did an excellent performane on stage but finally did not make it to the final. Also, Serbia, for the 1st time will not be in the Final of the contest. Lithuania probably was the "saved from the juries" country and finally made it to the final. The bookmarks' favourites Greece, Norway, Azerbaijan, Estonia and Ukraine passed to the Final as well. The pop song of Albania managed to impress the viewers and pass to the final, like the ethnic entry of Moldova did! We have also two beautiful ballads qualifying : Croatia and Denmark...
