ESC 2017: HERE'S THE STAGE AND THE SEMIFINAL ALLOCATIONS

Fans were complaining before about everyhting but NTU has come up with the logo, slogan, stage and allocation draw in January. Just as promised. :-) And even the ticket sales will start in a week or so...
The stage (on top) looks very much inspired by Vienna and Helsinki with the Baku backdrop. But then again it's the same designer. Except for Helsinki of course! Looks promising.
The semifinal allocation is sorted out as well today with the Host City insignia ceremony, passing the contest officially from Stockholm to Kyiv. A nice tradition started after Helsinki 2007 from the initiative of the Helsinki city people. 
Italy, Spain and United Kingdom will vote in the first semifinal which is bad news for San Marino.
Germany. Ukraine and France will vote in the second semifinal which is good news for San Marino if they send Serhat again.....
And Finland? AGAIN first semifinal and AGAIN first half!
This is 8th semifinal one in ten years, and the starting numbers have been 1, 5, 9, 10, 5, 15 and 16. In those two times in second semifinal were 5 and 8 but both times we qualified. The qualifications from semifinal one have come with 10 (2011), 15 (2009) and 16 (2008). It's not looking good in that light.....
OMG. The  S I L E N C E  when Russia was drawn..... (48'35). That was spooky.....
