I was wondering if all the announcers might have been given a few facts to make people sympathise with Portugal. Graham said they hadn't won in 53 years and then mentioned the singer had health problems. Like subconsciously trying to make people vote for them.

We're doing well though. Graham noted how nobody in Europe gave a gooseberry fool about Brexit.

How can these "expert" juries not place the UK song in at least the top three? :o .

This is my first time watching the Eurovision in about 10 years, are they really going through this whole strawberry floating voting process again after this jury one is over?

Wait so the only real chance of beating Portugal is that 10 year old from Belgium? This voting is a mess.

They changed it last year to make it more tense. It worked well.

iIRC, the public voting is run through stupidly quickly... and it makes massive differences to the outcome.
