WELCOME TO THE 10TH EDITION OF THE EUROVISION DIARY!
Jerry Appelt is in da house! Jerry was the Lighting Designer for Eurovision Song Contest 2011 and 2012, and he is here with the German Delegation, to make sure we don’t screw up their song! Click on the image to see one of my favorite songs we did back in 2011!
And we didn’t screw it up! Germany looks great!
So do the Irish balls! Disco balls that is!
We had all of the big five on stage for their second rehearsal today. This inlcudes Italy. Thanks for the rubber duck!
His name is Sven, and I adopted him when he was fired from the Italian performance. He keeps me company at FOH now.
So…… for some reason, there is this Finnish seal that has his own webcam. And for some reason Mikki and his team have been keeping a close eye on him for the past three days…………. and for some reason, I don’t get it. Should I tell them about all the porn you can find on the net???? Click on this image, and you can watch him too! (The seal, not the porn.) He rolls into the water at night so if it’s dark, check back later.
I just had to talk about this fixture a bit more! Aquabeam is absolutely killing it at Eurovision. Failure rate so far is only 2 fixtures out of 67, four weeks running, 16 hours a day. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzap!
Oh! We have laser too! We use it for the German laser trees, but we’re also doing a laser cube for Ukraine’s song 1944 performed by Jamala, that has been climbing on the betting charts the past 48 hours, and is now in second place!
For some reason, the amount of visitors to my office has dropped severely since I put up this poster on the door. Thank you Tobbe for keeping all scary people away!
One of Sweden’s biggest newspappers happily reported that we have 43 countries in the show this year. Thank you so much for being on top of the game……….
