GREECE – Following complaints from many countries regarding the rehearsals (Denmark, Cyrus, Austria and the United Kingdom), a serious mistake during the Jury Rehearsal took place tonight. The director missed the face of Yianna Terzi and her blue hand as the smoke effects appeared in the second and to the first chorus.
Jury Rehearsal is vital for the semi finalists as tonight the national juries cast their votes which is the 50% of tomorrow’s result. Immediately the Greek delegation protested and requested to perform again (as it happens in many cases in the past).
The organisers announced in the arena that the juries must hold their voting process in order for RTP / EBU to decide on the Greek request which ultimately denied.
