I'm pleased to report that Sweden's Eric Saade made it through to the final with the last available slot. Ireland made a good call with their crazy twins Jedward also making the final. Austria's Nadine can actually sing, which is becoming a rarity in the show these days. (Sooz also liked her asymmetrical haircut).
The bookies have France as the big favourite, with some sort of opera number. France is one of the "big five" countries (along with Spain, Italy, Germany, and the UK) that don't have to qualify. So all we know of those songs are their music videos, which aren't always indicative of the live show.
I'll try to post a recap before the show, but I may be distracted by the FA Cup that morning!
