Eurovision Song Contest 2012: Semi-Final Two

About this programme

Scott Mills and Sara Cox present coverage of the second semi-final from the Crystal Hall in Baku, Azerbaijan, which gives UK viewers their first chance to vote in this year's competition. Many pundits have tipped Swedish singer Loreen to take the title with her dance anthem Euphoria, but she must first secure one of the 10 qualification spots available from tonight's heat. Others with high hopes of earning a place in Saturday's final include Serbian Eurovision veteran Zeljko Joksimovic, who finished second in 2004, as well as Norwegian star Tooji and Turkish singer-songwriter Can Bonomo. Joan Franka is aiming to be the first Dutch act to make the final since 2004, while Slovakian rock singer Max Jason Mai and flamboyant Georgian Anri Jokhadze are among the outsiders worth keeping an eye on. The programme also features interviews with some of the acts who have already qualified, as well as Engelbert Humperdinck's first impressions of Azerbaijan's capital.
