In just 8 hour the first semi-final will begin! I’m super excited to see the contestants perform for the first time in front of a live audience. It should be super fun. As of this morning, here are the youtube counts for all the participants in the first semi-final. The top 7 on the list will definitely go through and the bottom 3 are very likely to fail, but there is a lot of wiggle room in the middle 6. We will see which countries are able to make it all the way through and which ones end up falling flat.
