by Stratos Agadellis 2,632 views

Our favourite habit: part two! Following our poll for the first semi-final, which managed to correctly predict 7 out of 10, it’s time we did the same for the second show, which is about to start airing in a few hours, live from Tel Aviv, Israel. 

Ready, steady, go! Only a few hours are left to the second semi-final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2019, where 18 contestants will be fighting for the 10 remaining spots at Saturday’s Grand Final. Which ones will keep chasing their dream? Both the public and the 21 national juries will decide upon that!

When it comes to our own poll, each one of our editors submitted their votes within the traditional Eurovision style (1 to 8, 10 and 12 points, and thus, the 10 entries with the highest overall scores are our 10 qualifiers, which can be seen below.

As with the live semi-final show, the countries will be revealed in a random order, which has nothing to do with their actual ranking.

Our editors’ verdict gave the following qualifiers for tonight:

  • Armenia
