We reported yesterday evening that Per Sundnes had been replaced on the Norwegian jury after he had slammed the Irish entry in a Norwegian programme, with both countries set to compete and vote in the second semi-final.
Now, the EBU has confirmed that four more juries have had a change in membership, although for what reasons remains unclear.
The four changes are;
- Jordan Raskopoulos replaced by Natasha Cuppit (Australia)
- Sasha Saedi named as fifth member (Austria)
- Mistermash replaced by Aleksander Lavrini (Slovenia)
- Ivan Broggini replaced by Jean-Marie (Switzerland)
The changes came into effect before last night’s first semi-final jury performance. We have not heard of any problems with registering of jury votes for last night’s semi-final.
