Wednesday's first dress rehearsal for John Lundvik and The Mamas began with several minutes of silence. During the rehearsal, all the tracks are played one after the other, just as in the semi-final – so it was not.
" I started singing but then it became black, and it was different codes on the floor. It took a while before it got going again, " says John Lundvik.
Wednesday's second rehearsal, which is far more important, then the international jury sees all the appearances and base their points for them.
"It's nice that it happened now and not when it is the scorpion in the evening," says John Lundvik.
Sånginsatsen went, however, as planned.
"I'm pleased with my appearance, but when you look forward to the bright screens and it just becomes black, it is clear that it affects," says John Lundvik.
Now they will have a meeting with on-site technicians to sort out ljusfrågan.
"We shall hear what happened, so we are going to clarity and can take it from there," says John Lundvik.
