Eurovision Semi Final Results: Ireland Crash Out Of 2015 Song Contest

There was bad news for Ireland as the second Eurovision semi final took place on Thursday (22 May) night.

The country’s entry, 17-year-old Molly Sterling, failed to make it through to Saturday’s Song Contest final with her song ‘Playing With Numbers’.

It is a massive blow for Ireland, who are the most successful country in Eurovision history, having won the contest seven times before.

There was also disappointment for Iceland, Switzerland, the Czech Republic, Malta, Portugal and San Marino as they also failed to make the cut.

The countries who made it through were Lithuania, Poland, Slovenia, Sweden, Norway, Montenegro, Cyprus, Azerbaijan, Israel and Latvia.

The UK, Austria, France, Germany, Spain, Italy and Australia already had their places in the competition guaranteed.

Sweden is currently the bookies’ favourite to win with their entry ‘Heroes’ by Måns Zelmerlöw.

The Eurovision Song Contest 2015 final airs on Saturday at 8pm on BBC One and BBC Radio 2.
