Vienna 2015: Super Weekend #2!

A number of shows will be held over the weekend; including two national finals from Switzerland and Cyprus. We also have shows from Lithuania, Iceland, Latvia and Hungary.

Six acts are aiming to represent Switzerland in Vienna. The main favourite appears to be Timebelle - and they are closely followed by The Voice winner Tiziana. This blogger would be shocked if one of them didn't win. I would love to see Deborah Bough win though. Check out my full review of the finalists here. More information here.
  • Andy McSean – Hey now
  • Timebelle – Singing about love
  • Tiziana – Only human 
  • Licia Chery – Fly 
  • Mélanie René – Time to shine 
  • Deborah Bough – Take me back to 23 
When? 21:10 CET. Where? here.

Hungary's national selection continues with the 2nd heat of A Dal. Another ten acts will all be hoping for a place in the semi finals.
  • Ádám Szabó - Give Me Your Love
  • Chances - The Night
  • Gergő Oláh - A tükör előtt

Söngvakeppnin returns this weekend with a rather fine bunch of songs. Stefanía Svavarsdóttir's my personal favourite from the first Icelandic semi. The three most popular songs will make the final on 14th February..
  • Stefanía Svavarsdóttir - Augnablik
  • Elín Sif Halldórsdóttir - Í kvöld
  • Friðrik Dór - Í síðasta skipti
  • Erna Hrönn Ólafsdóttir - Myrkrið hljótt
  • Björn og félagar - Piltur og stúlka
  • HINEMOA - Þú leitar líka að mér
When? 21:45 CET. Where? Here.

Seven acts remain in the Lithuanian selection, and with no immediate favourite, it's still all to play for. Two acts will be eliminated..
  • Edgaras Lubys
  • Jurgis Brūzga
  • Liepa Mondeikaitė
  • Mia
  • Monika Linkytė
  • Neringa Šiaudikytė
  • Vaidas Baumila
When? 21:00 CET. Where? Here.

On Sunday, the Cypriot entry for Eurovision 2015 will be chosen. The winner will be chosen by a 50/50 combination of televote and jury vote - the jury consists of Despina Olympiou, Alex Panayi, Elena Patroklou, Tasos Tryfonos, Nicola Caligiore, and Dimitris Kontopoulos. Who will represent Cyprus?
  1. Hovig - Stone in a River
  2. Doody - Magic
  3. Panagiotis Koufogiannis - Without Your Love
  4. Minus One - Shine
  5. Giannis Karagiannis - One Thing I Should Have Done
  6. Nearchos Evangelou & Charis Savva - Deila den agapo
I'd like to see either Panagiotis Koufogiannis or Nearchos Evangelou & Charis Savva victorious although I'm still gutted Ioanna didn't make it.... Doody's song is popular for some reason but this blogger isn't a fan. When? 21:00 CET. Where? Here.

And finally, Latvia's selection will also kick off on Monday. The first heat will feature ten songs and four will qualify for the semi final.When? 21:20 CET. Where? Here.
