Everything you need to know before tonight's Semi Final

Mid-May means Eurovision season is in full swing, and whether you're an avid fan or avidly pretending you don't care, the whole island is going to be talking about the competition for days to come.

While Gozitan sweetheart Michela gets ready to represent Malta in the second Semi Final happening on Thursday, the action kicked off last night with Tel Aviv's first Semi Final pitting 17 nations against each other for one of 10 coveted spots in the final.

But as more and more countries join the fray (we're up to 41 this year), keeping up with who's singing what can become more complicated than a would-be university course on the subject. Which is why Chucky has streamlined the process for you.

Listing five favourites it's hard to not love, and five entries it's hard to not cringe at, the shade gets real as the stakes get higher. You know what they say, Chucky's hair is so big because it's all full of secrets.

Did your favourite make the cut? Was your most-hated down at the bottom? We'd love to know what you think down in the comments.
