Bold italics most memorable

The second semi-final for the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest goes out on Thursday 27 May. It looks to be a considerably more interesting semi-final compared to the first one.

The big news is that the UK can vote in this particular event. But, like the first semi-final and the final on Saturday 29 May, the telephone vote will be combined 50/50 with an expert jury.

Running order for the considerably less interesting first Semi-Final.

Showing my workings

Countries marked in bold italics in the list represent the acts I could recall just from a handful of listens (good or bad). This doesn’t necessarily represent the best acts – just the ones I remember without actually listening to the songs again.

Countries marked with an asterisk represent the ones I reckon will go through having reminded myself what the songs are and considering their impact in the running order. To be honest, this may not be quite so significant this year given the phone lines are open for the entire show, but you know if there are first-timers watching on the semi-final night it *might* have an impact.

Again, the asterisk list is not necessarily an indication of quality, merely a painful reminder that the world doesn’t revolve around me as much as I would like.
