The Eurovision Song Contest 2017 kicked off in style tonight, and we have our first ten qualifiers for the final!
This evening saw a huge range of different music genres throughout; from retro Portuguese ballads to neon Latvian rock, we saw performances of all kinds tonight at the International Exhibition Centre!
Opening the show this evening was Monatik with his song Spinning, followed by the interval act with Jamala performing her songs 1944 and Zamanyly.
The results of tonight’s semi-final were decided by a combination of national jury from each of tonight’s competing countries along with a public vote.
