The guaranteed

As highlighted above, all four of our writers believe Hungary, Armenia, Russia, Iceland, and Cyprus are guaranteed to move on to the final.

 

The safe

As for Greece and Malta, three out of four believe they will pass to Saturday’s show, giving them a rather safe chance of making it in our eyes.

 

In jeopardy

Our writers are more in disagreement when it comes to Austria, Croatia, Azerbaijan, The Netherlands, Czech Republic, and Estonia, who all are predicted to pass by two out of four. For these, it’s a 50/50 shot.

 

If they are lucky

Finland and Bosnia & Herzegovina are only mentioned by one writer each. They have not been completely left out, but need some luck.

 

No chance

Unfortunately, Moldova, San Marino, and Montenegro have not been mentioned at all, meaning our writers give them no chance of qualifying tonight. Maybe next year.
