On this page you can see my predictions for the first semi-final 2012
which were made in late April. Inevitably the combination of national
dress and mild dementia bring the Great Russian Bear tm
the win. The busker comes in second and more controversially
the horn third, with the Izabo show showing well too. Looking at the
list, I could well have got this badly wrong. As you would expect the
general standard is uniformly low, and a case could be made for the
majority from this semi qualifying, but I honestly cannot make a case
for 15th through to 18th...they are the pits...Sadomasochists will get
a major kick out of San Marino in particular this year, three minutes
of aural hell.
Are you desperate for entertainment during a midweek evening in May?
Are you the type that flicks through the channels like Sumo TV and SyFy?
Then there's every chance you'll come across the first Semi Final of
the 2012 contest on Tuesday the 22nd of May. The UK aren't even voting
in this one, but that shouldn't stop you from tuning in, snd cheering
on Mr Amadeus. Go on, it'll break the week up.
I've also had a pop at the other semi final here
and the final
already, so confident am I at the predictions below (also I'm not going
to be able to update them following the semi-final). You can view it
