Eurovision Song Contest: Semi Final 2 | Preview (BBC One)

Rylan and Scott Mills are Live from Malmö, Sweden, for the second Semi Final of the world’s biggest music competition as another sixteen countries compete for the remaining ten places in Saturday’s Grand Final.

Highlights include early favourite Nemo for Switzerland with their song ‘The Code’; Austria’s Kaleen, with her 90’s-inspired dance anthem ‘We Will Rave’, and Joost Klein for the Netherlands, whose viral hit ‘EuroPapa’ has already broken all streaming records in his home country.

Also performing, but guaranteed a place in Saturday’s Grand Final, are members of the “Big Five” Italy, France and Spain.

Angelina Mango represents Italy, with her Latin sounding bop, ‘La Noia’; Slimane represents France, with his dramatic ballad “Mon Amour”; and Nebulossa, a synth pop duo represent Spain with “Zorra”, a song about female empowerment. All this plus incredible interval performances and a nail-biting results reveal, make for a spectacular event ahead of Saturday’s Grand Final.

Following Loreen’s historic win in Liverpool last May, hosting duties are with Sweden this year, with Hollywood star Malin Åkerman and Eurovision-veteran and comedian Petra Mede presenting the show live from the Malmö Arena.
