ESC 2017

My qualifiers for semi 2

Like basically everyone else I find it very hard to give predictions for semi 2, as there are just too many contenders. Many people think this is the weaker semi-final, I don't think it's that bad actually, especially the first half is really quite strong for me (mainly in terms of possible qualifiers).

The third dress rehearsal of semi two.....

United Kingdom Embassy Reception in Kyiv - with Lucie Jones and Emmelie de Forest

United Kingdom Embassy Reception

ESCKAZ.com were again fortunate to receive an invite to the UK embassy reception in the host city this year. Held in the grounds of the Embassy they guest list included some a lot of the local VIPs from the area, so mainly staff from other embassies - we spotted several - and of course the UK press and journalists attending Eurovision this year

All guests were welcomed by the United Kingdom Ambassador, Ms Judith Gough, herself resplendent in a sequinned United Kingdom dress, and treated to excellent complimentary food and drink while waiting for Lucie Jones to arrive

United Kingdom Embassy Reception

We mixed with several of the press and gathered VIPs and then Lucie arrived. After a short speech by the Ambassador, Lucie sang her Eurovision song, Never Give Up On You, and in a great moment was then joined on stage by Emmelie de Forest, Eurovision winner from 2013, and they sang a duet arrangement of Snow Patrol’s Chasing Cars….but only after they took their shoes off; Clips here



Lucie then gave us a rendition of That’s Life and finally left the stage...

We had a chance to then have a quick chat with Lucie Jones in the garden and also had a quick chat to Emmelie de Forest; Both clips here


Lucie Jones will perform in Saturday night’s Grand Final for Eurovision 2017 and we are hopeful that this year will see a return to the left hand side of the scoreboard - well she at least deserves this in our opinion…

Kind regards to all in the UK delegation and especial thanks to Ellen Hughes for the invite

Jury Rehearsal Semi-Final 2 - Live Blog

This is the live blog for the Jury Rehearsal of Semi Final 1 on which juries will give their scores.
The blog will be updated throughout the show.

Serbia: Tijana with a dramatic and vocally solid effort.

Austria: Nathan plays it safe and pulls out of the big note. Charming performance.

FYROM: Jana with a very fierce and flirty performance for juries. Vocally sound.

Malta: Claudia shows passion and the best vocals so far.

Romania: Alex' voice got a little wobbly after riding the cannon. Ilinca's vocals and yodeling strong throughout.
