Live Blog: First Semi-Final

Tix is in the press room!

Tix has turned up in a silver sparkly suit, very much in keeping with this year's costume theming. A journalist from Norway has asked him how he's planning to improve his performance before Saturday, which is frankly SHADY.

Instead Tix talks about the importance of putting mental health on the agenda, and gets a little emotional.

Another journalist asks if he preferred his own performance or Azerbaijan's. He ignores that question too.

I'm pretty sure the online question comes from Bradley Stoke Radio, so big up the Bristol massive. They ask why Tix took his glasses off on stage, and he says it's about embracing his weaknesses.
