He’s back! Jon Ola Sand, the man behind everything, who supervises every single thing regarding the world’s biggest music event keeps on teasing us with interesting information…

Last night saw the second semi-final of the Eurovision Song Contest, which completed the line-up for tomorrow’s Grand Final. The evening’s winners which managed to secure a spot at the final event were: North Macedonia, The Netherlands, Albania, Sweden, Russia, Azerbaijan, Denmark, Norway, Switzerland and Malta.

The outcome emerged by a combined public and jury voting deliberation, each contributing equally to the determination of the 10 qualifiers. According to the public opinion, the second semi-final was expected to be an even harder battle among the competing nations with unsure results. And this might have been true…

Just like in the first semi-final, the score difference between #10 and #11 was admittedly very short. Jon Ola Sand posted a tweet again, with which he revealed that there was one country that missed out a spot within the Top 10 by just 1 point!

When it comes to the public’s and jury’s opinion on who’s going through and who’s not, we got to know that the two voting bodies agreed upon 7 out of the 10 qualifiers, one less than in the first semi-final. Which countries could have stayed out of the Grand Final if either the public or the jury vote was not counting at all? Make your predictions!

The full split results of the two semi-finals will be unveiled tomorrow by the EBU, right after the conclusion of the Grand Final. Stay tuned!
