Odds (according to oddschecker.com): Through to the final & top-15 of the 39

Anette predicts: To the final
I thought Valentina was to good for her song last year and I wished that she would get a chance to show her potential… and that’s exactly what happened. I belive that she’s going to impress both the jury and the viewers with this amazing song and make sure that the country ends up in the final for the very first time.

Anette wants: To the final
“Crisalide (Vola)” starts off very promising, like a classic Italian ballad and when you don’t think it can get any better, it accelerates into a fantastic drama/pop song. This new Siegel-hit exceeds all my expectations and it is one of my top-ten favorites this year.
