For all those who attentively followed the 58th Eurovision Song Contest from Malmö, Sweden, you may have noticed that there were some technical issues here and there. Of course, during a marathon live show of 3.5 hours errors can happen, but some error were a bit strange.
Bonnie Tyler’s performance was good in general, but the image did not match with the sound, so it appeared that this might not have been live singing. But there is a rule that every singer must sing live for 100%. Maybe some TV viewers thought this was a playback and did not vote for Bonnie.
During the voting procedure the high Swedish votes were announced earlier than the point from 1-7. That was a pity. Ex-winner Lena from Germany announced the votes, but made a mistake as Norway has already received 7 points, and she announced “Norway 10 points”. But this can happen and is no drama, but of course an unflattering situation for Lena.
At the end when Denmark was announced as a winner and Emmelie could sing her song one more, but the Eurovision anthem started in the middle of the song and the broadcast was over. That was the most embarrassing slip of the night.
