The theme was not absolutely clear this year. The repeatative logo was a butterfly that flew each of the countries flags, these were pretty and very well done, however, I recall seeing only one butterfly on the hand of the Ukraine. In the first semi final, the competition seemed to be ruled largely by female singers in white - representing their innocence and purity obviously! The second semi final brought forth the men, and fewer women in white.
Below are the female contestants (including Cezar from Romania because I could not include all the dresses without his monstrous skirt). The contestants of the top six are not included due to not being absolutely certain of their outfits, I will illustrate their outfits after the final. Neither have I included some of the females that were included in a group. Finally, I missed out Austria because I just plain felt they didn't try hard enough with the outfit. The song, Shine, was neither brilliant or terrible.
So here we go.

So, although, slightly out of line from my usual blog posts, I hope you enjoyed this illustrated commentary of the semi final of Eurovision 2013. To close I am sharing Eurovision's video of Cezar performing It's my Life.
