Eurovision fans were left reeling on Thursday night after a hilarious skit that recreated the viral Miss Universe screaming meme.

The second semi-final was hosted by Hollywood actress Malin Akerman and fan favorite Petra Mede in Malmö, Sweden.

As the two women started the show, they explained that three of the ‘Big Five’ were performing despite already having places in the grand final.

The group – made up of Great Britain, France, Spain, Germany and Italy – goes directly to the final as the biggest financial contributor to the European Broadcasting Union.

Malin said: “Tonight new memories will be made for people watching us around the world as 16 contestants take to the stage. But you will also have the opportunity to hear the three countries that have already qualified for the finals. It is…’

They then cut to a clip of the three main stars representing their countries, Italy, Spain and France.

However, when it came to France, the beauty queen gave the country a loud shout to the laughter of the audience.

The scene parodied a viral clip from the 2018 Miss Universe pageant that became a popular meme last year.

In a funny moment, French contestant Eva Colas joined the other beauty queens in announcing her country’s name when her voice broke and she screamed: ‘France!’

Viewers watching at home were also in hysterics over the skit and took to social media to say that France should be presented the same way every year.

They wrote: ‘They’re not reviving the Miss Universe France meme; I know that France joke is coming and I laughed at it EVERY SINGLE TIME”.

Elsewhere, the semi-finals caused a shock after fans’ favorites Malta and Belgium failed to make it through.

As Israel’s Eden Golan defied thousands of protesters, including those demonstrating in Malmö, she demanded to be kicked out of the competition as she made her way to the final.

Latvia, Austria, Netherlands, Norway, Greece, Estonia, Switzerland, Georgia and Armenia were the other countries to make it to Saturday’s final.

Malta was represented by Sarah Bonnici with the song Loop, while Belgium was represented by Mustii with Before The Party’s Over.

Although both songs were well received by the crowd and were considered favorites, they did not receive enough votes to qualify for the finals, much to the sadness of fans.

The EBU, whose members have endorsed Israeli broadcaster Kan, took a strong stance against political messages at Eurovision and flags and symbols from non-competing countries, as in previous years.

Despite this position, in Tuesday’s first semi-final former Swedish contestant and opening act Eric Saade wore a keffiyeh-patterned material on his arm, commonly used by people who want to show they are pro-Palestinian.

Viewers watching at home also went into hysterics at the parody and took to social media to say that France should be presented the same way every year.

«As with all major television productions with an audience, SVT is working on the sound of the broadcast to equalize the levels for television viewers,» said a statement from Eurovision organizers, including Swedish host broadcaster SVT.

“It’s just about getting the most balanced sound mix possible for the audience; and SVT do not censor the audio from the audience in the arena.

«The same principle applies to all competition performances and opening and intermission acts.

«The EBU and SVT encourage all viewers to participate in the spirit of the competition, embrace its values ​​of inclusivity, celebrate diversity and be United By Music.»

Greta Thunberg also joined thousands of protesters in the southern Swedish city today to demonstrate against Israel in a famous song contest.

The climate activist, 21, was at a Stop Israel demonstration in the city center on Thursday ahead of the young Israeli-Russian singer’s performance in the second semi-final of the competition later that evening.

It was previously reported that Israel’s national security agency, Shin Bet, had warned Golan not to leave his hotel room except for performances, as Malmö expected a wave of pro-Palestinian demonstrations.

The prediction was correct, with up to 5,000 people taking to the streets of the city today, including a young Swedish woman – who was pictured wearing a keffiyeh, a black and white headscarf commonly used to express support for Palestine, around her body amid the crowd in a sea of ​​Palestinian flags.

Smoke bombs in the colors of the Palestinian flag were set off during the demonstrations, and protesters, some of whom were carrying dogs, small children and bicycles, carried signs with pictures of Gazan civilians who had been injured during the conflict between Hamas and Israel. .

Other banners displayed messages including «welcome to the genocide contest» and «stop using Eurovision to whitewash Israel’s crimes».

At one point, the police called on the pro-Palestinian protesters to go back and return to the main rally after shouting «free Palestine».

During Eden’s rehearsals, her song Hurricane, which was reworked from an early track October Rain that was deemed too political, was booed, with cries of «free Palestine» reportedly heard on Wednesday.

Eden, who was born in Israel but grew up in Russia, told MailOnline this week: ‘I don’t let anything break me, I wouldn’t say I’m afraid. I’m ready.»

Denmark, Finland, Norway and even host country Sweden have repeatedly called for Israel to be banned from the competition altogether.

And in Belgium, two ministers demanded that the Jewish state be treated the same as Russia, which is banned from 2022 after invading Ukraine.
