Don't get too excited yet, I could be completely getting the wrong end of the stick, but there's bee a lot of chat about Austria's "performer" in inverted commas and that it will be divisive and that people need to think outside of the box to guess what it is. And then somebody dug up this tweet from a couple of weeks ago, showing the interest is definitely there:This is the best news I've heard all season
I think it would be something like this, where the 'hologram' is projected onto a sheet of glass or perspex:Is this not likely to require all kinds of additional staging provisions that would be a nightmare for the EBU?
I think they are Austrian (or somebody involved is).Hmm, if it is true (that Jack guy has been wrong many times before) then I don't mind it in a THIS IS NOT REAL MUSIC!!!! sense, but I do think it's a bit shit if it isn't even an Austrian song/performer. (In the sense that there's a performer at all)
If I were a local act who'd been passed over for this I think I'd be quite pissed off.
