HLO. Finally, the dust has settled and we can continue on with the contest! With 25 confirmed participants (plus a further 7 who probably won't vote) and a party atmosphere, the semi final has been scrapped for this edition and you're all prequalified. Well, I was feeling sorry for CTP... he hadn't been in a final since before Anette's hair turned grey. And that was a loooooooooong time ago. Poor CTP. Proceedings kick off from around 21.30 - 22.00 UK time so hopefully we can squeeze everything in just ahead of Jonny's bedtime.
