    Dutch delegation said to be very dissatisfied with the first rehearsal regarding camera angles etc. Expect fairly noticeable changes for next run through on Saturday…..but I agree with many who have commented on that keyboard. Makes Duncan static and remote….it looks cheap and is problematic. But I doubt they’ll take it out this late in the game…..

    I happened to watch the winning performance from 2015 yesterday evening. Sweden via Azerbaijan have stolen the projected red heart and the dancing stick figure. Yawn.
