Ten women sang tonight to be voted on by the audience. It's shaping up to be Egypt vs. Tunisia. The Egyptians seem more confident; the Tunisians hesitant. The two Lebanese contestants were the weakest, particularly Ilian, who flatened Umm Kalthoum out of existence. The Iraqi woman was good.
My vote goes to Tunis. Can't beat "Al Atlal," especially this part, where she says: (approximate translation)
"Give me my freedom, let my hands free
I gave you all, kept nothing
Ah, your chains bloodied my wrist
why should I preserve them when they showed me no mercy
why keep promises you haven't honored
why stay in captivity when the world is mine"
