  • [01] Semi-final of Eurovision song contest held in Athens late Thursday night

    The semi-final of the 51st Eurovision song contest began late Thursday night at OAKA's Olympic indoor hall in Athens and were expected to finish in the early hours of Friday.

    The television viewers were to vote the ten best songs which will compete in the final on Saturday night.

    Taking part in Thursday night's semi-final were 23 countries: Armenia (which is taking part for the first time in the history of the competition), Bulgaria, Slovenia, Andora, Belarus, Albania, Belgium, Ireland, Cyprus, Monaco, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Poland, Russia, Turkey, Ukraine, Finland, The Netherlands, Lithuania, Portugal, Sweden, Estonia, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Iceland.

    The ten best that were to be elected late Thursday night will compete in Saturday's final with the best top songs of last year's Eurovision, that is, Switzerland, Moldova, Israel, Latvia, Norway, Malta, Denmark, Romania, Croatia, the four major countries which traditionally participate in the competition - Spain, Germany, France and the United Kingdom - and Greece which won the Eurovision song contest in 2005.
