Morten Westgaard is Eurovision Norway have seen three tests where the same error has occurred:
The song starts playing, but then stops without explanation after a few seconds.
In one sample, the same error occurred twice.
Check out the moment of the error here:
Westgaard is surprised that the organizers of the Pala Olimpico in Turin have not corrected his mistake.
– When it didn’t happen at the jury test on Wednesday, I thought the organizers had fixed the problem. Since it happened today, it’s clear that it hasn’t been fixed. “This is concerning, especially now that we are approaching the jury exams tonight,” he said.
If the same mistakes were made during the final on Saturday, there would be a crisis, Westgaard believes.
Error with stage performance
It was also later in the dress rehearsal for Sweden that she apparently lost her voice or lost her grip on the song, because she suddenly stopped singing.
Some of the artists chose to save the votes for rehearsals, but some in the hall looked at each other in bewilderment when this happened, partly because there was a small grin.
Scotland Ewan Spence, radio commentator and writer for ESC Insights, calling the whole rehearsal a mess. However, he points out that we don’t know why he’s not singing.
– We often make plays here in the press room, but we don’t know what’s really going on. There was a problem with the sound in the artist’s ear in the past, he may have such a problem. There might have been flies or spiders at the scene, so he made a face. He might as well be postponed because his stage show didn’t go the way it should, Spence said.
He explained that one of the elements on the stage was the large sphere, which should rotate and give a kind of halo around it. This one is missing.
– A bad general test can give a good jury test. I choose not to worry at this point.
Better for Norway
Practice is the last chance for artists to perfect songs before Friday night’s jury practice, and Westgaard believes having good practice can be the key to good practice.
Jury votes count for 50 percent in tomorrow’s semifinals. Audience votes account for the remaining 50 percent.
Jakobs didn’t get great reviews, but the Norwegian Subwoolfer finished without a problem.
– It went smoothly, Westgaard stated.
