2008 Eurovision Results: Second semi-final results The results of the second semi-final of 2008 Eurovision song contest are out and now we know the remaining ten countries that will compete on the final. The ten countries chosen by the voters on Thursday to continue to the Eurovision finals are Ukraine, Croatia, Albania, Iceland, Georgia, Denmark, Sweden, Latvia, Turkey and Portugal. Much less voting this year, considering that from the countries already performing on the first semi-final only Serbia, France and the United Kingdom were allowed to vote in the second Eurovision semi-final. Quite a surprise was the fact that Bulgaria, one of the favourite countries to win Eurovision 2008, did not qualify for the song contests finals.
