Portugal to host 2nd semifinal of Eurovision Song Contest today

Eurovision fans in the country say that the broadcaster censored O'Shaughnessy's performance in its entirety.

Ireland's Ryan O'Shaughnessy will have an extended stay in Lisbon this week as Ireland successfully qualified for Saturday's Eurovision final.

During the live semi-final on BBC Four, host Rylan Clark-Neal said China's Mango TV would not be allowed to show Eurovision because it has censored performances by Ireland and another delegation.

"This is not in line with the EBU's values of universality and inclusivity and our proud tradition of celebrating diversity through music".

Chinese broadcaster Mango TV has been dropped by the Eurovision Song Contest organising body the EBU after censoring two performances during Tuesday's semi-final.

Nunes, Gowdy meet with DOJ officials amid Russian Federation probe standoff
It's not yet clear what path Nunes will pursue if he doesn't get access Thursday to the documents he's seeking. Also Thursday, Nunes received public support in his battle from House Speaker Paul D.

Sobral's victory was the first time Portugal had won Eurovision since it entered the contest in 1964 - and the first time a song sung entirely in a language other than English had won since 2007.

The Irish Times has reported that 'guidelines in China prohibit the broadcast of "abnormal sexual relationships and behaviours, such as incest, same-sex relationships, sexual perversion, sexual assault, sexual abuse, sexual violence, and so on".

Lisbon's riverside Praca do Comercio has been converted into a buzzing "Eurovision Village", complete with bars and food trucks, which will broadcast the final on a giant outdoor screen.

Russia, which does take part in the contest, had threatened to block the broadcast of the performance over the LGBT routine.

"We actually weren't expecting that when it happened first in the rehearsal, the two of us got a bit emotional on the stage", 25-year-old Alan said. Pick up a copy of this week's edition of The New European for more on Eurovision as we assess our chances.
