Live Blog: First Semi-Final

Manizha from Russia is in the press room!

Manizha is feeling fantastic and fabulous about being in the Eurovision Grand Final, and it's was an amazing feeling to perform in front of a huge live audience.

Manizha has a message to her haters, who she prefers to call 'not lovers'. What upset her most was people who said she would never get to the final with a song in Russian, and she reminds us all about what t.A.T.u achieved in 2003. She is so proud that she's a Russian woman singing in the Russian language.
