Eight of the ten countries that qualified for the Grand Final last night, had support of both televote and jury. Jon Ola Sand, Executive Supervisor for the EBU, confirmed this on Twitter. He also says that there were only two points between the number 10 and number 11 in the final ranking.
I can now reveal that the score difference between #10 and #11 in last night’s first Semi-Final was just 2 points. Out of the 10 qualifiers, juries and televoters agreed about 8 out of 10. Your vote matters! #Eurovision #DareToDream

EBU cannot yet reveal which country finished in which place yesterday. The full split results will be revealed after the Grand Final on Saturday.
The biggest surprise in semi final 1 was the fact that Hungary did not qualify. Fans reacted disappointed to the result of San Marino and Estonia. This fan reaction was also focus point of discussion in this morning’s episode of Daily Coffee.
