MALMÖ / OSLO (Nettavisen): It has been a dramatic Eurovision day, where the Netherlands was banned as a result of threats against Eurovision personnel.

In addition, several countries have dropped the flag parade at the stage rehearsal, dress rehearsals have been interrupted, countries have demanded that Israel be disqualified and Norwegian Alessandra Mele has chosen to withdraw from the role where she was to distribute Norway’s jury votes during the final.

During the very last rehearsals for the dramatic Eurovision final on Saturday, France’s hope Slimane chose to cancel his performance. Dagbladet writes that.

Instead, he came with a prayer for peace, and that love must be allowed to win.

– Ever since I was little, I have dreamed of singing, and I dreamed of singing about peace.

In front of Nettavisen, president of the Grand Prix club, Martin Thomassen, does not hide that it is a demanding situation for the artists:

– It shows how intense it must be to be backstage in this situation, and suddenly just feel like saying something instead of singing the most intense part of your song, so there is probably quite a lot of emotion and stress behind the stage, says Thomassen.
