#17: Grand Final Preview

The Grand Final of the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest takes place Saturday, May 12. That means this is our last chance for wild speculation. We break down what happened at the semi-finals before sharing our hopes and dreams for which countries we want to win.

This week we welcome Barbara Sawhill to the panel to chat about what happened in Tuesday and Thursday’s live shows. We discuss just how wrong we were about our semi-final one predictions, particularly why some power house countries failed to advance. Although we did much better predicting the second semi-final, there were still some surprises Thursday.1

Twenty-six countries are left. Who’s going to win? It’s the most exciting episode of the year as we head toward one of the most exciting Eurovision Grand Final competitions in years.

  1. Including Mike’s audio failing to record, so he’s sitting out this week.
