Saturday night, Denmark and Sweden will fight for the winner’s trophy together with Finland and 22 other countries. That is the result after the second semi-final in Eurovision Song Contest Thursday.
Both Denmark and Sweden were favourites to get the ticket to the grand final, but nothing is predictable in Eurovision Song Contest – and especially not this year, where there is no obvious winner.
When the Danish band A Friend In London performed their entry “New Tomorrow”, lead singer Tim Schou was running all the way on the gateway to the audience while he sang, and they got one of the biggest applause from the audience. Sweden’s Eric Saade did a good job as well singing his up-beat pop song “Popular” while breaking a glass screen.
Who will be this year’s winner. Finland as in 2006? Denmark as in 1963 and 2000? Sweden as in 1974, 1984, 1991 and 1999? Or will another country get the winner’s trophy? Saturday night at 9 pm (Scandinavian Time) we will all know, when Europe will find it’s winner of Eurovision Song Contest 2011.
