Flurry of criticism of Eurovision for the chaotic conduct of its first semifinal

With the typical “Let the Eurovision Song Contest begin!” The 66th edition of the great musical and television show has started. This year, after Maneskin’s victory in 2021, Italy’s public broadcaster has been in charge of organizing the song festival from Turin. However, the spectators have not been happy with some other aspect, at least, of the first semifinalheld this Tuesday, May 10.

The setbacks began the same day that the Pala Alpitour opened its doors to host the first rehearsals.

This mishap had as a direct consequence the modification of the realizations of each proposal, in order that the great structure of lights stood out as little as possible. The RAI seems not to have achieved it completely. The specialized press was able to see it this week when it agreed to the first tests and, tonight and through social networks, the audience has confirmed it.

Not a few have been “disappointed” with a state chain that broadcasts the famous Sanremo Festival every year, perhaps with higher quality and better visual results, or due to the fact that some very competitive ‘shows’, such as Denmark or Albania, have been tarnished by this issue. Other users couldn’t help but compare the camera game to last year’s, when the contest took place in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.

Of course, in this first Eurovision semi-final, some states have been spared negative feedback for this reason. Without a doubt, the performance of Greece has convinced most viewers. “Sublime Greece. Sublime. It is the first time in this semifinal that I see Eurovision in a staging and production,” said one tweeter about Amanda Tenjford and her ‘Die Together’, while another applauded “the beauty” of the candidacy Greek.
