Ever since the unfortunate cancellation of Eurovision 2020, song contest organisers have required broadcasters to film backup performances in case an act can’t make it to the stage in May. Now, the EBU is releasing almost all of the Live On Tape recordings for Turin 2022.
The recordings are being released on the official Eurovision channel across a period of 10 days. The publication schedule appears to be following the semi-final running orders. Today, Wednesday 15 June, we’re getting three more songs from semi-final one — Switzerland’s Marius Bear, Slovenia’s LPS and Bulgaria’s Intelligent Music Project. Ukraine’s Eurovision-winning Kalush Orchestra have been skipped over. That’s because they were granted an exemption from recording a Live On Tape.
The remaining acts will follow over the coming days. Eurovision.tv states that a small number of delegations have opted not to release their backup performance, but doesn’t specify which ones. However, the Netherlands has already confirmed that S10’s Live On Tape will remain locked in the vaults.
