On Saturday evening, the stage was set for the second semi-final of the Swedish Melodifestivalen. Ms. Snousek (19 years old), whose identity is not yet known, was among the artists who applied for the Last Chance program, which will be broadcast in March.
But just a day ago, a lot happened behind the scenes. He writes Aftonbladet.
A drunk man managed to sneak into a room behind the stage while Ms. Snoozek was conducting a rehearsal. He tried to take pictures and talk to the artist, despite SVT tightening security measures.
-There was someone who wasn't supposed to be there but still came. Ms. Snoozek's team was very upset afterward, and I understand that. Even SVT was self-critical and took the incident seriously. This shouldn't happen, a source tells Aftonbladet.
After the rehearsal, the artist's team demanded a crisis meeting with officials at SVT.
As Aftonbladet has learned, the man must be certified for Melodifestivalen, but this should not give him access to the room behind the stage during rehearsals and broadcasts.
Avisa tried to get a comment from the man, to no avail.
Anders Westbacka, director of the Melodifestivalen project, confirmed the incident to the newspaper.
– There was one person in the green room who wasn't supposed to be there, but there was no security breach. We are investigating the incident with the artist and her team. “We want to respect the artist’s desire to focus on the competition,” he says.
Sunday reports Express That the actress must have been sexually assaulted by a drunk man. The artist stated, through her press call, that she was subjected to abuse.
– When she returned before her performance, we learned that the man had sexually assaulted Frokin. We were, you know, very upset, writes Jessica Sandberg in Expressen.
