    My favorite countries from semi-final 1 were Albania, Armenia, Austria, Bulgaria, Finland, Greece, Iceland, Ireland, Macedonia, and Switzerland. As only half of my favorites qualified and the other half missed out, I decided to final happy/sad videos on YouTube to show my reactions.

    First, let’s start my reaction to Albania, Austria, Bulgaria, Finland, and Ireland all qualifying: 🙂
