By now we know that Loreen has won Melodifestivalen 2023 with her Eurovision entry, “Tattoo”, thus Loreen will represent Sweden in the Eurovision Song Contest 2023 in Liverpool, United Kingdom. There seems to a bit of hick-up though; the upper LED screen of Loreen’s acts might be too heavy for the M&S Bank Arena in Liverpool…
In Loreen’s act the two LED screens that she moves in-between are vital for her performance, but the upper screen is 1,800 kg, which is too heavy for the roof of the M&S Bank Arena in Liverpool, which is this year’s venue of the contest.
In the past
In the past some acts of Melodifestivalen, Sweden’s national final, needed adjustments to reach the demands of the grand Eurovision stage, i.e. in the contest of 2019 Swedish John Lundvik needed to change his performance, because an enormous lantern he used in his act during Melodifestivalen was not allowed on the roof of the 2019 venue in Israel, and had to be replaced by a floor-mounted light.
Sweden’s Loreen will perform in the second half of the first Semi-final on May 9th 2023.
The Eurovision Song Contest 2023 will take place on May 9th, 11th, and 13th 2023 in Liverpool, United Kingdom. 37 countries will compete for the crown. This year’s Eurovision Song Contest will be a joint venture, since last year’s winner Ukraine cannot organize the contest on home soil because of the ongoing war with Russia.
