    Amar pelos dois is easier to digest, while Blackbird is a bit darker and depressive somehow. I think the jury also thought that it was enough to pick only one between Portugal and Finland, that may explain why it was placed low by many of them, unlike the televote which placed them almost in every top 10 of each country.

    The draw wasn't either favorable to them, just three minutes separeted them both. I bet, if it was placed in semifinal 2 it would probably have done better with the juries. In any case, most of Finns are proud of their performance and there is nothing to complain about. There are ways to lose, Norma John lost the game delievering a quality product and it'll be remembered as one of the most underrated entries, that's in the end much better than being a top 10 with only 2 points from the televote.

    I don't know what makes me more sad, the song or the fact they ended up 12th in the semi It is firm Top 5 of the whole Eurovision. So sad ESC crowd does not appreciate something as beautiful as Blackbird...

    P.S It was the only song that I remembered from the two semifinals.

    Thanks to the Juries for eliminating this overhyped song. Finland should have sent Emma, then they would have reached the Final.

    Emma would have never reached the final either. It was the essence of eurovision stereotypes and wet dream of eurofan boys.

    Disposable, repetitive melody with arrangement and visuals which pretends to be somehow ethnic. Mid 2000s are over.

    We probably would have sent Emma had she been able to sing the song live.

    Overall UMK had maybe three songs that were not complete disasters. Blackbird was one of them, and had by far the best live performance. It was the best choice. Not spectacular in any way (if you ask me), but nothing to be ashamed of either. We failed with style.

    Blackbird was everything Circle Of Light wasn't and it still didn't make it. Mainly because the song wasn't strong enough. Circle Of Light was a far better song with a worse performance, but it would have stood out more. I honestly think it would have qualified.

    Circle of Light was a total mess if you ask me.

    At least Juries proved that they dont always push slow ballads high. I dont see it undeserved being ranked under and . And thank God the Televoters thought the same. Good Voices dont justify such boring Songs in my opinion. I only agree that it would be a better choice than .

    Sorry to be in the opposite to you once again
    Cyprus and Greece were both boring songs heard million times before, sung pretty mediocre live. What kind of Quality did juries see in this I don't know. Greece is too 00's to be considered quality.
    I disagree with Finland being boring, it's maybe not your cup of tea, it's atmospheric. I heard Blackbird for the first time in semi and I fell in love... it was so sad, well staged and well sung live.
    Viewers were right to put this in their top10
