Ready for the Qualifiers draw?

Well, that was quite the ride – we actually forgot to breathe. Big congratulations to our 10 Qualifiers from tonight’s show, and much Eurovision love and commiserations to the six who didn't make it through. 

Thank you for joining us for this live blog – we hope you’ll come back on Saturday for the Grand Final. But for those of you who want to disappear a little further down the Eurovision rabbit hole, each of our Qualifiers will be swinging by shortly to pick a slip of paper from a big bowl that will tell them whether they’re performing in the first or second half of the Grand Final. 

The draw is being broadcast live on TikTok, but we’ll be sharing the results too. On Tuesday it took twenty minutes or so for the Finalists to muster in the press conference area, so take the opportunity to replenish your supplies and stretch your legs.
