An independent investigation — launched on behalf of the EBU — is assessing the “unsafe working atmosphere” that allegedly took place in Malmö during Eurovision 2024.  

According to a report on Dutch TV programme RTL Boulevard, the investigation comes after the EBU received at least 13 complaints from various delegations after the Eurovision Song Contest. 

As part of the independent investigation, investigators will interview members of Eurovision delegations — and with the option for people to remain anonymous. We can safely assume this is to make people feel more comfortable. Many will have professional or personal relationships with the alleged offenders — whoever they may be. 

Norway’s Head of Delegation Stig Karlsen spoke with RTL Boulevard’s entertainment reporter Aran Bade and confirmed Norway is in talks with the EBU. He said:

”The EBU reached out to us positively, inviting us to evaluate ESC 2024 from our perspective. Representing NRK, I have already shared our experience and concerns with an external representative hired by the EBU.”

“We have every intention of participating in ESC 2025, but it depends on the actions the EBU will take to ensure that we do not face another season filled with polarization, politics, and security concerns.”

Eurovision 2024: Independent investigation looking into unsafe working atmosphere

The Dutch broadcaster AVROTROS lodged an official complaint with the EBU about an “unsafe environment” prior to their act Joost Klein being disqualified on the day of the grand final. 

Joost, of course, was disqualified because of the EBU’s commitment to its zero-tolerance policy towards inappropriate behaviour at their event. Yet the Dutch team felt it had already witnessed inappropriate behaviour at the event before the Joost brouhaha. 

The Dutch broadcaster expressed through news site NU.nl that their complaint was based on experiences that happened before the country’s disqualification and they filed a complaint on 10 May, one day before the grand final. Although AVROTROS did not provide specific details about the details for their complaint, they acknowledged that they “recognise the picture” described in complaints made by other artists and delegations.

According to RTL Boulevard, Switzerland, Ireland and Portugal are among the other delegations to issue formal complaints. The Dutch broadcaster is currently considering its response to the independent investigation.

Separately, Wiwibloggs have been told that it’s likely Executive Supervisor Martin Österdahl is maintaining a low profile during this investigation.

As someone who works in education, I’ve been worried about the dumbing down of the population for some time. And the spreading of false narratives. I get no hope of any improvement from reading most of the comments here. What is so difficult to understand that equating Russia’s cause for expulsion with Israel is simply incorrect? It’s a competition of broadcasters not states. Russia’s broadcaster was kicked out for breaking fundamental rules of the EBU. It was not directly linked to Russia’s invasion (even if some of that rules broken later included false propaganda about the war). Remember, Russia first… Read more »

The Israeli delegation were obviously and publicly acting like nasty, spoilt brats because they knew they had daddy Germany and MoroccanOil backing them up. The fact that a delegation member can say about Joost “he doesn’t deserve to breathe near us” and get no consequence, shows that Eurovision cannot be fixed because money always wins. The disrepute will be remembered for years. No one buys that the EBU will investigate itself properly.

Maybe people who work at KAN should stop participating in those atrocities then or cheering it on or generally pushing the same hardline violent rhetoric the government under an arrest warrant is being judged for then.

Because queer by definition is: “ denoting or relating to a sexual or gender identity that does not correspond to established ideas of sexuality and gender, especially heterosexual norms.” or being strange odd -therefore not the stereotypical roles.

Hence why someone who is neither make or female is the very definition of queer.

Queer is a word of uncertain origin that had entered the English language by the early 16th century, when it was primarily used to mean strange, odd, peculiar or eccentric. By the late 19th century it was being used colloquially to refer to same-sex attracted men.

The pre-recorded backing vocals are destroying the contest. It’s clear that so many artists are using them as lead vocals. So it might become like team orders in F1 or on-court coaching in tennis, in that the EBU will eventually say “It’s happening and we can’t stop it so we’re making it legal.”

Israel should not have been allowed into the contest this year. It made it already political just because they were there. All delegations felt uneasy with this while so many people were killed meanwhile by a participating country. There is only one major conclusion the ebu can make: that it was a mistake to allow Israel to participate in 2024.

Everyone knew before the national selections that the EBU had decided to allow Israel to participate.

But of course serial attention seekers like Ireland’s artist and the Swiss artist wanted to have their cake and eat it. They wanted their 3 minutes of exposure so of course did not boycott (as that would be personal detriment to them) Instead went along, got drunk on the attention they received and deluded thenselves they were more imporrant… Read more »
