At last night’s Jury Final for Eurovision 2015, Australia might have gone a little heavy on their smoke machine. Belgium’s Loïc Nottet performed immediately after the Aussies, and we could barely see him on the screen. At first we thought it was the camerawork and the white screen, but now rumours are swirling that it was actually Australia’s smoke and pyro.
The delegation is rumoured to have lodged a complaint about this, saying that it would affect part of their final score. Although they requested to perform again, this request was apparently denied. Juries were told to disregard the smoke instead.
Loïc is currently the fourth favorite in the odds to win tonight’s Grand Final, which could bring the contest to Brussels next year. Do you think this incident will affect Belgium’s score? Was is unfair to not let them perform again?
