Producers say the lineup is more diverse than ever before and will feature everything from “artsy” ballads to “very hard guitars.”
All seven finalists recorded live-on-tape performances of their songs. Producers said this will give voters “much more realistic material for your decision-making than ever before.”
Producers added: “We are INCREDIBLY proud of the live performances, they were fantastic and we have done a big step forward than previous years for the whole ESCZ, mainly thanks to the fantastic two new members of the creative team.”
