The EBU issued a press release, announcing that they have chosen to make changes following Monday’s first dress rehearsal for the Eurovision Song Contest in Liverpool.
Dress rehearsal goes through for the Everything Must Be in tomorrow’s semi-final, so they make a kind of fake vote.
All the artists stood on stage to await the imaginary verdict as to whether or not they should continue working. It was a completely random drawing, and then the presenters read from Go on, to see what reactions they got from the participants and to test the camera angles.
In the past, artists sat with their delegations in the so-called “Green Room”. There they sat with the songwriters and dancers and waited together in excitement.
Now the EBU is turning around and going back to the old model.
I stood alone and cheered
Morten Thomasen, president of the Norwegian MGP club, believes that it had to do with the fact that it looked simply strange during the dress rehearsal, because artists who were not in a band had to stand alone on stage and cheer.
Those who were in teams could at least cheer each other on.
Television 2 was present in the hall during the dress rehearsal, and there were several technical problems.
The producers complained that the dress rehearsal was marked by the fact that they had to take several takes. In particular, when the presenters were supposed to have items things went wrong.
The EBU press release has been sent to the accredited press and reads as follows:
After experimenting with a new system for introducing the eligible countries at the first rehearsal, the production team decided to go back to the previous reveal sequence used in years past with the artists learning whether they would advance to the Grand Final with their green hall delegations. Although this change will not be implemented this year, however, there are other innovations in the show that viewers can look forward to.”
– very happy
Eurovision fans have long expressed their displeasure with the EU’s change of the green room. The largest independent “Eurovision” blog in the world, Wiwi!, wrote that fans thought it was “unnecessary and mean” to leave artists alone on stage. On social media, fans are now flocking to the various comment sections to celebrate this.
Norway’s Eurovision fan and writer Martin Philipp Vilanger is happy with the change.
– I’m so glad they dropped it! Dragging all the artists onto the stage in the same way a student would line up at school, knowing that many of them wouldn’t last… I think that’s brutal towards artists. Additional humiliation for those who fail to qualify. Artists have been working day and night for this for a long time, so all artists deserve to be treated kindly.
