In between, as usual, he presents the top 10 players in the first semi-finals. As in the show’s tradition, high-profile commentators aren’t always of his opinion.

Andy Knoll explores Turin, although he prefers to go to the mountains that are practically in front of his nose. It would only take 50 hours to walk to Mont Blanc, for example.

But there are also other beautiful things to discover in the city, and of course, Andi also presents the top 10 players in the second semi-final, which notable ESC fans have commented on.
