"Several artists were unable to attend"
"Bingolottos exclusive offered an eclectic mix of musical performances. "
"But the viewers never got to know several of the performances were pre-recorded."
"– All the artists could unfortunately not be in place. We did as best we could, " says John Sarafian, press officer for the ”Bingolotto”. "
"many famous artists were guests Performers on the nyårskvällen. For those who sat at home on the couch and looked at the program it seemed that all the artists were on site and performed their number live, something that the newspaper Expressen was the first to report on."
"The viewers did not know was that the several number was pre-recorded."
"– All the artists could not be in place. It is new year's eve and many are busy. We did as best we could, but sometimes you do not get it together, " says John Sarafian. "
"When Ola Salo, Mariette, Swedish dansband Lasse Stefanz and irish singer Gavin James announced that they could not attend chose Bingolotto another solution. "
"– We simply had to choose between pre-recorded elements, or to not have with the artists at all. But there is nothing really kostigt with it. In tv, it happens quite often. "
"Even Rickard Olsson to play down the point is:"
"– So it is in all liveprogram I have done in 20 years that there are segments that are förbandade, he says to Expressen."
