Eurovision 2019 Semi-Final 2: The Eight Countries That Failed To Make It To The Grand Final

The second Semi-Final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2019 took place last night (16 May 2019) and what a fierce competition it was. A total of 18 acts represented their countries on stage, but only 10 could go through.

This had to have been the toughest Semi-Final, ever. Every act brought it, to the extent where it felt like it was the Grand Final. One surprise comes from this Semi-Final included Austria as this is the first time in five years that they’ve not made it to the Grand Final – also five years ago, they won.
