    In the Eurovision production diary, Ola Melzig reports that 16 delegations are bringing their own video content. Is this something usual /normal or is this something new?

    When does the rehearsals start?I can’t find the schedule on and I am not sure they have published the schedule officially.
    There are rumours that rehearsals start on Saturday 4/5, and if this is the case, I think the last JBJ should be online on that day.

  2. Ewan Spence says:

    Countries can provide their own content for video walls, or have the broadcaster/tech team supply something suitable. So it’s something that feels normal – although there’s no numbers to suggest if this is more or less than the average.

    We’ve heard our listeners clearly over the last years that JBJ #8 should be up before rehearsals.
