THE NETHERLANDS – Live from Rotterdam, this post will come to you online at the end of each day of the Eurovision rehearsal weeks. This post will feature the major information from the delegations aside from their official rehearsals and press conferences.
A photo posted on Facebook later deleted gave away the jury names of Romania. This actually breaches the EBU guideline this year which calls for all broadcasters not to announce the jury members before the grand final show to avoid scandals and unnecessary changes in the juries, something for which we totally disagree as there will be scandals anyway and then EBU will be totally humiliated. This definitely doesn’t help transparency. Anyway! Several news sites in Romania immediately posted the news in which the names of Luminiţa Anghel, Ilinca Băcilă, Andy Platon, Răzvan Popescu and Liviu Teodorescu presented. Immediately the Romanian national broadcaster started calling them to withdraw and remove their posts. Most of them obeyed the Romanian broadcaster’s order, with some exceptions as you can see, with the latter being one of the most popular and respected newspapers in the country.

“Interview day. All the time was dedicated to conversations with different countries. In the evening The Yellow Wave reached Rotterdam. Not only did we receive a ton of support, but also joined the “Discoteque” dance live from the hotel corridor. What is happening now is unbelievable! We all, with Lithuanians all across the globe, just made the biggest discotheque! Such support touches us, makes us smile, makes us want to scream and remain silent all at the same time. Thank you”
