Winner predictions from Daniel and I


Still calling it for Russia this year, with either Australia or Ukraine in second place

BUT I would love to see Austria do it, that would be simply amazing but unlikely to happen and of course I am totally hoping for a top 10 place for Georgia


Think that Russia will still pull this off, with a dark horse as Serbia and France possibly having their best score for years.

Would love to see Russia win this all in the end BUT at the same time Bulgaria should hopefully do well too, good luck to Poli

Ukraine First Rehearsal

Very impressive first rehearsal for Jamala.

Vocally and visually absolutely stunning. From the optic illusion of Jamal standing in toxic gasses, to the colours on the LED floor, which towards the hymn part are being pushed up by Jamala onto the LED backdrop.

Vocally also incredible.

Met with so much applause in the press centre. Will do very well.
