Armenia/Azerbaijan: Eurovision Semi-Final Results

Life Gets In The Way reports that as predicted by many blogs, both Armenia and Azerbaijan have made it through to the 24 May final of the Eurovision Song Contest in Belgrade, Serbia. The blog says that the vocal range of the Azerbaijani act was amazing and their performance show-stopping. However, the blog agrees with Unzipped: Gay Armenia which says that the vocals from Armenia's entry were disappointing. Meanwhile, my The Caucasus Knot wonders how geopolitics manifested itself during voting given the effective state of war that exists between the two countries. Regardless, the countdown to Saturday's final in the international music competition continues.

    Hi, nothing is amazing, I saw Sirusho singing Kele kele alive in a local show 2 STARS in Yerevan some days before Eurovision starts.It was even worse that her semifinal’s vocal!
    I wached WITH MUCH CARE the video of the second rehearsal on You Tube ,and I think the truth about this performance is that actually she sings from time to time( by the way, these are the most unclear parts of the vocal!) but there is a BACKROUND RECORDING STILL PLAYING AT THE SAME TIME! A SEMI-LIP SYNCH.
    If you wach with much attention you could see that THERE ARE SOME PARTS WHEN SHE HAD NOT THE MICRO NEAR HER MOUTH(actually she’is doing a dance element)BUT THE VOICE STILL SOUNDING!!!
    But in the semifinal was PURE SIRUSHO-): WITHOUT ANY HELP-):
    GOOD LUCK ARMENIAN DELEGATION FOR 24 MAY-):)))
