The entries that missed missed their place in the Grand Final were Georgia with Keep The Faith by Tamara Gachechiladze, Albania with World by Lindita, Montenegro with Space by Slavko Kalezic, Finland with Blackbird by Norma John, Czech Republic with My Turn by Martina Bárta, Slovenia with On My Way by Omar Naber, Latvia with Line by Triana Park and Iceland with the song Paper by Svala.

The contest is organized by the Geneva-based European Broadcasting Union.

Both of the Australians competing this year used television talent programs to launch their careers: Firebrace was the victor of the eighth season of The X Factor Australia in 2016 while Nissen won the third series of Nine's The Voice in 2014. Compared to decades gone past, it seems as if the BBC has no idea what they're doing, as the acts we won with pre-1997 included Katrina & the Waves and Lulu, who already had careers before Eurovision and who were still fairly close to the spotlight when they competed for the UK.

At the same time, he has added that a small amount of tickets for the fan zone is still available, in particular, for the semi-final, and called on to buy tickets on, the official ticket partner of Eurovision.

Firebrace told Fairfax Media he was focusing his energy on delivering a next-level performance of Don't Come Easy this weekend. "I'm going there to do well but I'm prepared for anything". "If it was my song then I would definitely, yeah".

Portugal and Bulgaria's entries are also both considered strong contenders; Portugal's Salvador Sobral, in particular, generates a massive reaction from the audience inside Kyiv's International Exhibition Centre.

That's because Francesco Gabbani, competing for Italy, is the bookies' favourite to win Eurovision 2017 thanks to his - rather catchy - track Occidental Karma. I just hope people connect with the song on the night.

A trio from Bern will represent Switzerland in the second semifinal of the Eurovision Song Contest on Thursday evening.
