    Ireland was not going to win anyway lol. Apart from the hot favourites, you never know who will qualify from a semi. For instance, the bookies have Denmark and Netherlands as almost certs to qualify, I wouldn't be so sure for either of them, especially NL.

    I think the Netherlands are certain. They're vocals together are just too good, the juries are going to love it.

    I don't think his chances were that small (not big either) and I don't think there is absolutely no hope anymore either.

    It's still a hot candidate for the jury vote (a big one considering this semi is not full of jury friendly songs). If the televoting is not a disaster, he can easily qualify.

    But their song sucks big time. If the juries are going for any of them, Ireland is the obvious choice. OG3NE have really impressive vocals, but this year is full of great femenine voices and they can't all qualify.

    I much prefer the Dutch song to the Irish one, but that is obviously a matter of personal opinion. Plus, it seems Brendan still wasn't able to hit that big high note at the end of the performance today, from what I've read (I'm not watching rehearsals videos so I don't know if that appeared or not ) That has the power to kill it's chances with the juries.

    Aw, how thoughtful of you But don't worry, I'm not seeing videos and stuff but I'm reading the reviews published by the blogs. I just wanna keep away the visuals til next week, if possible

    I never heard Brendan hitting that big note once actually... that's quite worrying

    While this year does have a bunch of good female voices, I think the clustering of songs is actually worse for Ireland than it is for the Netherlands here. There isn't anything else quite like the Dutch entry in SF2, in that it's got female harmonies and those 90s country-soul elements to it. Meanwhile, Ireland comes up against Austria as a 'baby-faced young guy singing about trying your best with a sky motif' song, and against Bulgaria as a 'baby-faced young guy singing a traditional, emotional ballad' song - and I think it loses on both fronts.

    When you also consider that Ireland's coming after a string of five performances that have all been pretty well-received so far... it doesn't look great for him. I think Brendan's only real qualification hope is that he a) nails every note perfectly, b) San Marino after him is entirely forgettable, and c) the Dutch and Danish songs both surprisingly flop.
