This blogger is going to take a short break while the acts perform cover songs. I'll be back very soon. If you don't have a live stream - watch the show here! Please do comment underneath this post telling me who your favourite is.. I would love to hear what YOU think! :-)
TIZIANA - ONLY HUMAN
And the big favourites closes the show with a very emotional and touching performance. Some people label Only Human as being a bit dull and depressing but it has an important message. I can't lie, this song isn't my favourite tonight but I think she will win and I don't mind that. She needs to find a stylist before Vienna though. Perfect draw, stunning performance, amazing message, great voice = the whole package? 8/12
MELANIE RENE - TIME TO SHINE
Before watching tonight's show, I didn't think Melanie had much chance of winning but now I think she could do it. Her performance was stunning both visually and vocally. She is also going down very well with the international fan community on Twitter. Plus she's gorgeous. Please send her, Switzerland!! :-) 10/12
ANDY MCSEAN - HEY NOW
Andy is without a doubt the underdog tonight but who knows what could happen. Personally, I don't think the song is the best but it's not bad. A decent performance and he sung it well. He is the only guy in tonights show so is this an advantage for him? Maybe.. I do like the rock vibe. However it's only a 4/12 from me I'm afraid. Do you think Andy should win after his performance?
LICIA CHERY - FLY
This entry has grown on my considerably these past couple of weeks. Another great one. Licia performed it amazingly and I wouldn't mind if she did win, but I don't think she will. Some people are comparing this to Denmark 2014 but I can't see any resemblance.. 7/12
TIMEBELLE - SINGING ABOUT LOVE
The big favourites, Timebelle, are up next and they gave a fabulous performance. I am so impressed!! They're drawn at #2 in the running order though.. could this hinder their chances? I hope not. Switzerland should send this. It's catchy, memorable and will have international appeal. Plus the staging tonight was awesome!! 10/12
DEBORAH BOUGH - TAKE ME BACK TO 23
Deborah opens the show tonight. Fantastic performance. Her vocals were on point and I really do love this one. The staging is simple yet effective in shades of purple and pink. Will we see her in Vienna? Probably not... 6/12
