Daily Coffee: “Second chance after technical issues could help these countries”

ROXEN, Romania, Second Rehearsal, Rotterdam Ahoy, 12 May 2021 — EBU / THOMAS HANSES

In the next episode of our podcast Daily Coffee team ESCDaily talks about the jury rehearsal of the first semi final. It was plagued by technical errors, so three countries got another chance to perform their song. We argue this could be positive for Romania, Ukraine and Malta.

“Romania and Ukraine are more televote-friendly entries,” says Steef van Gorkum. “Since their second attempt was much better, it could help them in the sense that juries might rank them just a bit higher than they did at first.” You can read the full in-depth analysis of the jury show of last night here.

We also tell you about our chat with the organisation about these technical issues. What do they mean and how will they resolve it?
