This is the line-up of today's show (in order of appearance, qualifiers in bold):
Those who are not among the qualifiers picked by the jury still have a chance to go to the final by the decision of the TV public, who can cast their votes by SMS. The third and last semi-final will be held next Sunday, on December 19th.
