The results are in from the first semi-final of this year’s Eurovision
Song Contest in Denmark.

Russia’s Tomlachevy Sisters made the cut with their song Shine,
despite getting booed on the night because of their country’s anti-gay

The other nine nations to get through included Armenia, Hungary,
Azerbaijan, Ukraine, Sweden, The Netherlands and Iceland.

San Marino and Montenegro also reached the final – set to be broadcast
this weekend – for the first time.

Russia’s 17-year-old siblings were expected to face a backlash over the
controversial homophobic stance taken by Vladimir Putin’s government
and its invasion of Ukraine.

Ukraine’s effort also made the final, despite its singer reportedly
being a Putin fan.

The UK, France, Italy, Spain and Germany get a free pass to the final
each year because they fund the majority of the contest. Denmark will
be in the final as the reigning champion.

The second semi-final is being held tomorrow.
