Analysis: Montenegro will open the contest for the 3rd time, note that Montenegro only has 4 entries to date, Ireland will finish the semi final as well as last year, Serbia will open the second semi final, that’s good, we will begin with the good stuff 🙂 ,Netherlands has the same position as last year, It would be nice to see the Netherlands in the final after 7 years! ,Lithuania will end the show for the first time ever, note that Lithuania has opened or been in the first positions in most of its participations, Slovakia is in the last positions, making its chances of qualifying higer, United Kingdom will kick off the final, Like Brotherhood of Man did, France will be in the 9th position, I personally think that France’s positions to win are lower because in the last editions of the contest the winners performed after 15th position, but who knows, France comes really strong this year, anything can happen, like with Ruslana in 2004!
