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 and the publication schedule is following the semi-final running orders. Today, Thursday 16 June, we’re getting two more songs from semi-final one — Portugal’s Maro and Croatia‘s Mia Dimšić. The Netherlands’ S10 and Moldova’s Zdob și Zdub and Advahov Brothers have been skipped over. The former delegation had already confirmed that they would not be releasing their Live On Tape. It appears that Moldova also decided to keep their backup in the vault.
The remaining acts will follow over the coming days.
