Greece's Amanda Georgiadi qualified for the grand final of the 66th Eurovision Song Contest, held at the "Pala Olimpico" in Turin.  The young singer enchanted the audience with her performance of "Die Together".

After an intense competition in the first round of semifinals, ten countries were selected to move on to the next stage of the Eurovision Song Contest.

The Grand Final is set to take place Saturday, following the second of two semifinals, which is set to happen on Thursday in Turin, Italy.
After Tuesday's competition, musicians representing the following counties are still in contention: Switzerland, Armenia, Iceland, Lithuania, Portugal, Norway, Greece, Ukraine, Moldova and the Netherlands.

Kalush Orchestra, representing Ukraine, is heavily favored to win, according to Johnny Weir, who hosted the US coverage of the musical competition on the streaming service Peacock.

In the final, the qualifying 20 countries will perform along with the so-called Big Five (France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom), the countries that gain automatic entry into the final. The host country is also given a spot in the final, but this year's host, Italy, was already included.
