Twitter not kind for the Eurovision song contest full of mistakes and uncomfortable moments: “Too terrible for words”

Horribly acted scenes by the presenters, uncomfortable interviews, terrible sound, bad satellite connections, ugly outfits,… There was a lot to criticize about the Eurovision Song Contest show in Turin on Saturday evening. Italy is not doing well.

The run-up to the Eurovision Song Contest in Turin was one of failing sets and chaotic organisation. That showed in the semifinals on Tuesday and Thursday, and could not be rectified against Saturday’s big show.

The viewer was disturbed by the bad sound, the chaotic camera work and the many mistakes in the show. For example, the lights failed several times, including during a piece of presentation by Mika and Laura Pausini. During the scoring, the connection was lost three times.

Peter Van de Veire, who has been commenting for the VRT for years, indicated earlier this week that it was “one big chaos” in Turin. He also did not think the show was anything to write home about, but the Ukraine victory makes up for it, according to Van de Veire.

Twitter is especially not tender to the presenters of the Eurovision Song Contest. The bland, rehearsed cutscenes did not appeal to the viewer. Although that over-the-top presentation is characteristic of the Eurovision Song Contest.

The presenters also made mistakes. For example, the Netherlands was announced while it was Poland’s turn. And Mika thought he was on the Spanish entry, when it was actually Romania.
