JOYESC-2016-SF1P1It’s time for the traditional JOYEurovision previews and we started with the first half of the first semi final.

Michael and Mark bunkered down to enjoy (or endure) the first nine songs you’ll hear in Stockholm. Mark thinks Finland’s underrated, Michael’s scared by Armenia and both the boys are intrigued by Croatia.
