Mesdames et messieurs...bonsoir! Things are heating up in Azerbaijan as the first semi-final of this year's Eurovision Song Contest reached it's heady conclusion in Baku last night.
The qualifiers were:
Romania - Moldova - Iceland - Hungary - Denmark - Albania - Cyprus - Greece - Russia - Ireland.
Sadly, Montenegro didn't make it through with the fabulously titled Euro Neuro.

Other surprise non-runners were Switzerland, Belgium, and San Marino with The Social Network Song (Oh Oh - Uh - Oh Oh)
Austria also nul-points, or thereabouts, with eloquently titled Woki Mit Deim Popo, approx. translation 'Shake Your Arse' ..performed appropriately by Trackshittaz (I kid you not)

Euro-fun continues with second semi-final on Thursday, with the grand finale on Saturday. Stay tuned!

Meanwhile here's some fab nul-points nostalgia. It's Belgium's Telex from 1980, who so marvellosuly mixed stae of the art instruments with a touch of Belgian surrealism and a catchy tune.  Nul points, naturellement..
