No sooner had we recovered from the drama of the first act of Eurovision 2021, then we were straight into the action again with yesterday’s jury semi-final for the second semi.

Now, it’s time once again for the show to come live from the Ahoy Arena in Rotterdam, and seventeen more songs fight it out for ten spots in Saturday’s grand final LIVE!

So, what better way to hype yourself up for tonight’s first semi-final than joining Matt and the rest of his ESC United team to discuss the upcoming show, the contest overall and our last-minute predictions for how tonight goes?

We will be LIVE on YouTube AND on our new Twitch channel from approximately 19:30 CEST to discuss our feelings and answer your questions about tonight’s show, so make sure to join us then!

We will also be LIVE on YouTube and Twitch right after the show as we react to how the evening unfolded, go through the results and have our say on the qualifiers for Saturday’s grand final!

It’s going to be a roller coaster, so make sure #YOU stock up on your favourite snacks (anyone for stroopwaffels and drop?) and come join the ESC United team before and after tonight’s semi-final!
