An exciting show took place at the Globe Arena in Stockholm this evening with the second semi-final, where we was 18 more countries compete for one of the 10 remaining places in Saturday night’s grand final.

This evening saw a mixture of different music genres and styles throughout the second semi-final from each of tonight’s 18 competing nations, with hosting-duo Petra Mede and Måns Zelmerlöw making a return to the Eurovision stage to present and entertain the audience and viewers.

Graphics and special effects remained strong in tonight’s semi-final following on from Tuesday’s first semi-final, with effective use of holograms and video graphics being presented throughout each of tonight’s performance.

An interval dance act appeared in tonight’s show featuring performances from 3 dancers who together danced alongside 3 specially designed robots, performing cleverly choreography to a number of worldwide hits.
