The SemiFinal 1 was flawless with its choices to go through the final (bar Cyprus going through instead of the lovely Iceland). I counted and there were 9 (!!) out of 18 entries that used their backgrounds as 'interactive' pieces of their performances. God Almighty, copy the greatness of the song, not the performance that is a copy as it is! Don't understand how Russia remains the very favourite to win the whole thing. Armenia surprised me and Malta and her song (Viva Molly Pettersson Hammar!) blowed me out of the water, even if her act was nothing to call home for.
