This much we know

Since the replacing of the Iron curtain with an fetching window blind, the Eurovision family has expanded eastward to included lots of new faces. Suddenly the stage has got a whole lot bigger leading to accusations (and this guy’s done the research) and counter accusations of block voting.

However, it’s still ‘Old Europe’ who foot the bill for the event, and with that comes automatic qualification. So, out of the 25 finalist, we know that someone’s getting the UK, France, Germany and Spain who pay, plus the host Russia out of the hat. Also, we know that Italy, Austria, Monaco and Luxembourg aren’t taking part, so one of us is spared the agony/bordom of finding a Luxembourgian restaurant/eatery/shop in London.

So that leaves the followin from the first semi final:

FYR Macedonia, Andorra, Armenia, Belarus, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Finland, Iceland, Israel, Malta, Montenegro, Portugal, Romania, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey

And then some of these from the second:

Croatia, Ireland, Latvia, Serbia, Poland, Norway, Cyprus, Slovakia, Denmark, Slovenia, Hungary, Azerbaijan, Greece, Lithuania, Moldova, Albania, Ukraine, Estonia, Netherlands

So what do we think? Easy…? What if Albania go through? Well, you could do worse than starting with Brikena Muharemi, head of the Anglo-Albanian Association who said ‘Albanian food is similar to British food in some ways – it revolves around bread and pies.’

Bring it on!
