Daily Coffee: “Semi final 2 could have a bigger discrepancy between jury and televote”

Hurricane, Serbia, Second Rehearsal, Rotterdam Ahoy, 13 May 2021 — EBU / THOMAS HANSES

After the jury show of the second semi final, we go in-depth in our podcast about the possible outcomes of last night. Based on our article we made during the show, we talk about all 17 participating songs and their potential with the jury.

Much more than in semi 1, we feel that this semi final has the potential for big differences between the jury result and the televote result. Countries like Austria, Finland and Serbia for instance, could have a different result on both scoreboards, we think. Steef van Gorkum: “Serbia performed well last night. I still think juries may downgrade them based on the sexual nature of the song and performance.”

We also talk about Erik Bolks, who met Sergey Lazarev on his birthday.
