I copy below my prediction from the Allocation draw thread.




SEMIFINAL 1
1. ::az (need to start with something uptempo)
2. ::lt (is nice to have something calmer here)
3. ::al (bringing up the heat a little)
4. ::ee (need to bring the favorites in now, fits well after Albania)
5. ::bg (even if both songs are mysterious, we need to keep the favorites together while people are still watching)
6. ::il (Of course the most divisive song has to be put just before a break.)
-BREAK- (people talking about what they seen and especially their thoughts on Israel)
7. ::by (need some time to get together his outfit, if the lightsuit is coming along to Lisbon)
8. ::be (people will be for sure seated by now for the next contender)
9. ::cz (Better bring an another fave in the mix)
10. ::is (with two pretty decisive songs and only one break, someone has to lose of being after one of them...better this than others..)
11. ::hr (if people are still awake after Iceland, than this fits decently)
12. ::ie (could fight for the same votes as Iceland, producers like to make "battles" between similar songs if possible, just check Georgia vs. Albania 2017)
13. ::cy (must have something uptempo before the break)
-BREAK- (People have time to bring something more to drink or eat while humming on "Fuego".
14. ::am (could be before the break as well, but I think it fits slightly better after)
15. ::ch (Need to be something different in between the "battle of mystical power ballads sung in different languages")
16. ::gr (fights with Armenia for possibly the same votes, if we exclude diaspora)
17. ::mk (could fit in a little everywhere to be honest, nothing that disturbs people)
18. ::at (Last ballad of the night, fits the best)
19. ::fi (need to end uptempo with a good show, and Saara could bring it good enough)

SEMIFINAL 2:
1. ::no (A nice way to start the show with a name most people recognize with and that has a funny song.)
2. ::ru (It is good to keep the Russians, who also are interested in Rybak, on their tv-screens a little more.)
3. ::rs (Could scare away a few viewers, but not divisive enough to be put before a break)
4. ::sm (If viewers have run away, then just keep going with this then...)
5. ::dk (Hopefully the viewers are back now, a different song to keep the viewers seated for a while)
6. ::md (the most divisive song left has to be put before the break)
-BREAK- (People discussing if the first semi wasn't better and if Moldova is as good as last year)
7. ::nl (can't put this and Romania next after each other, and probably not Moldova and Romania either...best to put this one here.
8. ::au (Something has to be put between the "rockish" songs, and why not a contender then?)
9. ::ro (Rockish song that is a nice continuation from the first half)
10. ::lv (Battles perhaps with Malta for voters)
11. ::ua (Feels like the most suitible choice, also keeping the ex-ussr voters on their toes.
12. ::mt (Could fit almost anywhere)
13. ::hu (The most divisive song of the semi is needed here.)
-BREAK- (People cheering or swearing over the Hungarian song)
14. ::se (need a little extra time to arrange the strobelights)
15. ::me (fights with Georgia for the same voters perhaps)
16. ::pl (Keep the swedes interested, so why not put an another swede on stage?)
17. ::ge (could fight with Montenegro for the same votes)
18. ::sl (Need to end uptempo, and with a pretty divisive beat, this might be the most suitible one.)

So this is what I think...and I am probably wrong, but it is fun to theorize at least. :mrgreen:

Okay, I'll try this as well because I'm so restless atm :lol:
SEMI 1:
1. ::be - Usually they've started with something modern, why not start with a slow one and see how that works?
2. ::az - Elevates the tempo, not a clear favourite to qualify so it's placed between two favourites
3. ::ee - One more slow favourite, but impactful
4. ::al - Nothing to say here really, has to be somewhere
5. ::bg - One of the biggest favourites get to perform before the first break, will probably have an amazing staging and the viewers get to grasp for air ;)
6. ::lt - Probably a big contrast staging wise, will probably have it as scaled down as possible and a very sincere performance.
7. ::by - A more poppy ballad, will probably have some expensive otp-staging so a good contrast here as well.
8. ::il - The big favourite, gets two slower songs to build up to but I had to place it here to break the male performer-pattern
9. ::is - A clear NQ probably and will therefor be placed between two favourites.
10. ::cz - Will end the first half, and I think this is more realistic just because of their esc-histoy. Will probably help it secure a qualifying place if the staging isn't enough.
11. ::gr - Something ethnic and slower to start the second half.
12. ::at - Quite the opposite in genre, american soul pop
13. ::cy - The first banger of many in the second half! Will probably have a fiery performance and leave a big impression for the break.
14. ::am - Good follow-up, first fire than wind :P Starts slow and builds up.
15. ::hr - Nothing to say here really, maybe it's to similar to Armenia staging wise but we'll see.
16. ::ch - From modern jazz to american pop rock in higher tempo.
17. ::mk - Even if it's like three genres we'll have to place it as a dance song, goes well between two other genres.
18. ::ie - The last ballad in the semi, builds up to the last up tempo song.
19. ::fi - Stable live performer with a fan favourite song, great show closer with probably a great show.

SEMI 2:
1. ::au - Starting with Australia for the first time. Modern and upbeat.
2. ::ro - Rather risky but I'll bet Christer dares to put two 100%-qualifiers on the 2nd spot.
3. ::sm - Uptempo again, but a hopeless NQ.
4. ::dk - Brings the tempo down with a unique performance for this semi.
5. ::md High energy with according to themselves an interesting staging.
6. ::nl - The only song in this genre so it could be placed anywhere.
7. ::rs - Something ethnic after the Nashville explosion.
8. ::no - Funky pop by a veteran, think it's more likely to see it go out later to keep the suspense.
9. ::ru - The comeback of the year will end first half with a slower song, and an impactful performer.
10. ::hu - Could end as well, but after a pop ballad it's more likely it will follow that one.
11. ::ge - Slow ethnic song.
12. ::lv - Even slower but with modern production and a female solo artist.
13. ::mt - Will probably have interesting staging and is more up tempo than the last one.
14. ::se - Performs after the break to set up the solarium :lol:
15. ::me - Something slow and ethnic far from funkpop.
16. ::pl - Back to pop again, with more EDM-sound
17. ::sl - Pop as well but with a female performer and quite different from the previous one.
18. ::ua - Last year's host get to end the semi with some dark pop and an interesting performer.

1 ::il why not start with the big favorite. Uplifting so is a good start
2 ::is we have to slow stuff down with a not so favorite song
3 ::al a bit more uplifting right now, but not a favourite.
4 ::lt And another non-favourite here. To make things 'fairer' a bit slow song before antother favourites comes up
5 ::cz And here they are quite uplifting, so good after lt.
6 ::be favorites are following each other up now, so this is a bit slower.
7 ::az Slow than fast is the motto, not a big favorite here but faster
8 ::ee Then comes Estonia another favorite for top 10, but there are many of them opera after uplifting. Make or Break
9 ::by To show how good opera is we should put a relative 'crappy' song here
10 ::bg Well, also one of the favorites just after something up-tempo
11 ::ch a bit more uplifting not one of the big favorites this evening after Bulgaria
12 ::ie Than something slower with Ireland
13 ::gr Greece hopes to upset isn't that fast also, but after crappy Ireland This should be really good
14 ::am I don't know we are going faster right now
15 ::cy And after Armenia, we put the stage on fire with Cyprus.
16 ::at But than we take some snow and slow stuff down with an Austrian song

::gr Greece also exists and participates this year

It already won for me so it's not competition

Joking aside, I now see I've also forgot to include Moldova in semi 2. I'd probably put ::gr between Ireland and Finland, and ::md between San Marino and Denmark.
