I don't think anybody picked any of these (apart from Maclaim) but these are the countries that were eliminated at the semi final stage - if you did - please pick again

Eliminated

Ireland, Georgia, Cyprus, Israel, Malta, San Marino, North Macedonia Montenegro, Albania, Latvia, Slovenia, Bulgaria, Croatia, Denmark and Austria were all eliminated over the course of the semi-finals, after a combination of jury and public votes were counted.

Still free to be picked

Albania, Armenia, Croatia, Cyprus, Lithuania, Malta, Montenegro, Netherlands, North Macedonia, Serbia, Sweden, Azerbaijan, Estonia, Germany, Israel, Romania, San Marino, Switzerland, Austria, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Georgia, Iceland, Latvia, Slovenia

Hooray!
I won, using my skill and judgement, and not at all by simply being the first person to pick the obvious choice.

Bad luck, Blythburgh, you looked like you were onto a winner after the first round of voting.
