    Irish Kid has one of the better songs in the competition and is a very good stage performer. Barring some major fauwpa I expect him to move easily to the finals. Anyone who underestimates him do so at their own perile. But overall the show was a good one. I expect another very competitive semifinals. Good luck guys

    WTG Irish Kid. You are my favorite this season. Shadow Flow, very good song. I am disappointed that Mighty Omee is not in the list.
