So the Results are in from the first Semi and I am still in shock that Serbia made it. The bookmakers were right on that one.
I am happy that Romania and Hungary made it through, though I, like much of the rest of the world is sad that Finland did not make it. They rocked for an entire 85 seconds. the bookies had it in but the votes have it out. Goodbye Finland
The bookies got it right more than wrong though. Netherlands, FYR Maedonia and Moldova are also out like the bookies predicted. Many of my friends are saddened that Denmark is also gone, but the bookmakers picked that too.
Prior to the rehersals, Belarus were about 15th with the bookmakers. Thier exit is still not as shocking as Finland who were 5th, but it is still an epic error by the bookies.
The biggest shock to make the cut was Georgia, but then someone has to finish 27th in the final and I think Georgia is ready to claim that spot as their own...
The full list of those who have qualified for the final is available everywhere on the internet, including here. Now I am just waiting for semi 2
