The first Semi-Final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2018 took place last night (8 May 2018) and what a fierce competition it was. A total of 19 acts represented their countries on stage, but only 10 could go through.
We knew it was going to be a tough competition and there were some surprises. Everyone has their favourites so it’s not a surprise that some of them didn’t make it to the Grand Final. We want to congratulate the Czech Republic for managing to make it to the Grand Final – their second time since they debuted in 2007.
Others we want to give special mention to are; Finland, as it’s their first time in the Grand Final in 4 years; and, Ireland, as it’s their first time in 5 years.
Here are all 10 Semi-Final 1 acts who made the Grand Final. Do we have a winner amongst these acts? Why don’t you vote on our poll for your favourites.
