Elnur Huseynov from Azerbaijan and Måns Zelmerlöw from Sweden are taking part in the second Semi-Final to be broadcast tonight at 21:00 CET. But the artists are not only competitors, they also became friends. Elnur and Måns watched the live show of the first Semi-Final together. 

As the Azerbaijani and Swedish artists take part in the second Semi-Final, they decided to enjoy the first Semi-Final in front of TV screen together. Elnur Huseynov joined by Måns Zelmerlöw watched together live broadcast at the same hotel. The artists rooted for each and every contestant competing.
All artists are awesome, the show is truly amazing! I’ve taken the stage for the rehearsals but live broadcast is something so different. It was fun to become a Eurovision fan for a bit, - said Elnur
Måns and Elnur had some fan voting for their favourites. They even made a poll and tried to guess who will be singing in the Grand Final on  the 23rd of May. Both performers also were truly impressed by a spectacular opening of the show by Conchita Wurst with a special version of her winning song Rise Like A Phoenix.
