Someone said :

Of course it would work.

Jedward did great.

Get the song right, get the performer right and you're on to a good thing.

Not always. Remember Dustin?

...and Jedward finished 19th with Waterline in 2012 when they represented us 2nd time around.

This would be my winner for Sweden tonight. I'll allow another ballad.

That's a great song! I love the staging!

Sweden really do deserve to eclipse Ireland's 7 wins by now.

"When you look this fucking beautiful"???

Someone needs to have a quiet word in Mr. Bengtsson's ear, methinks.

I'm sure it will be replaced with a more family friendly adjective on the night

It's "fecking" on the studio version. I'm guessing Russia is going to announce its withdrawal in a big PR propaganda fuelled media briefing to undermine Ukraine.

Looks like Russia are in. The singer being a wheelchair user saves Russia being booed by the mainly Ukrainian audience. Clever Russia. It's still awful.

Apparently the guy singing the Portuguese entry is seriously ill and needs an immediate heart transplant.

Seems a bit petty of them. I'm no fan of Russia but this is a music contest not the UN.

Apparently the Portuguese story is fake news.

If the singer is banned surely they could just send another entry?

Russia won't be taking part this year. Statement from the EBU:

"Following the official confirmation that Russian Eurovision entrant, Julia Samoylova, will not be permitted to travel to Kyiv to compete in the Eurovision Song Contest 2017, the EBU formally offered two alternative proposals to Channel One in a bid to find a solution that would enable Russia to continue their participation in this year’s event.

"These proposals were to either take part via satellite or to change their chosen artist to one who could legally travel to Ukraine for the duration of the Contest. Sadly both proposals have been rejected by Channel One and they have now announced they do not intend to broadcast the Eurovision Song Contest 2017. Unfortunately this means Russia will no longer be able to take part in this year’s competition. We very much wanted all 43 countries to be able to participate and did all we could to achieve this," the EBU states.
Frank Dieter Freiling, Chairman of the Eurovision Song Contest Reference Group, the event’s steering committee, said: "We strongly condemn the Ukrainian authorities' decision to impose a travel ban on Julia Samoylova as we believe it thoroughly undermines the integrity and non-political nature of the Eurovision Song Contest and its mission to bring all nations together in friendly competition. However, preparations continue apace for the Eurovision Song Contest in the host city Kyiv. Our top priority remains to produce a spectacular Eurovision Song Contest with our Member UA:PBC in May."
