Part one of the three-part extravaganza that is Eurovision is over and ten finalists are through to Saturday’s finale.
Or to put it another way - Eurovision is over for the eight countries who didn’t make it through tonight’s contest.
Congratulations to the first 10 finalists of #Eurovision 2017 ✨👏

Congratulations Moldova, Azerbaijan, Greece, Sweden, Portugal, Poland, Armenia, Australia, Cyprus and Belgium.
But social media seems to be most concerned with the acts who didn’t make it through - farewell to Montenegro, Latvia, Finland, Albania, Iceland, Czech Republic, Slovenia and Georgia.
Our Eurovision correspondent today described the Finnish entry as “a dark horse for the crown” and it appears he is not the only fan of the song. There has been an outraged reaction to them not getting through.
Others are mourning the loss of Montenegro's Venga Boys-esque offering.

I'm waaaaay too invested in #Eurovision to not be genuinely upset about Montenegro not qualifying. Travesty.— Jesper Thunström (@jaxonthunder) May 9, 2017
