What another bad news has reached us. Last winner of the ESC 2019 Duncan Laurence had a positive corona test, despite of a negative test on Monday. According to the Dutch broadcaster and his management confirmed that Duncan has mild symptoms. But he has to go into isolation, which means that he will not be able to appear in the Grand Final to present his new song. This a really bitter reality, as he has been dreaming of this moment for two years now and three days before the big night, this happens. We all feel very sorry for him and wishing him that he will get well soon.
For the organizers they need to improvise, what are they doing? Replacing him by another act or will they show a tape? Luckily, he could at least open the first semi-final on Tuesday.
Let’s also hope that there won’t be any more cases like this.
