Loreen: “There are things I had wanted to do in Stockholm that I think we are able to do in Liverpool!”

Over the last couple of months, uncertainty had emerged regarding the staging of the Swedish participation at the Eurovision Song Contest. Despite the fact that the Swedish national broadcaster SVT had known the EBU staging restrictions for months, there was not a clear answer by the Swedish delegation on whether they will make any changes on the staging of “Tattoo“, in order to comply with the EBU rules.

A few weeks ago, Loreen took part at an AMA event on Reddit, where she revealed that all the staging issues have been resolved, removing any uncertainty about her appearance at M&S Bank Arena. But up to now Loreen had never spoken openly about the Swedish delegation thoughts on the staging.

Loreen has opened up in an interview she had with Expressen today revealing that they had several crisis meetings with SVT regarding the technical specifications of the stage of M&S Bank Arena in Liverpool:

A new stage always comes with other technical prerequisites. I have, together with SVT as a united team, had meetings discussing what is possible and what is not. What can we improve and where do we back off?

As usual, she kept a mystery around her final staging, firing up uncertainty and speculations shadowing her “Tattoo” Liverpool performance once more:

I won’t tell if there is a ceiling or not, you will see that on Sunday. There are things you can do now because of the larger stage. The equipment is different.

Finally, she revealed that there have been many ideas that she backed off for her performance in Stockholm that can be implemented on stage in Liverpool:

There are things I had wanted to do in Stockholm that I think we are able to do in Liverpool that can turn out really powerful.”

Like the number, Loreen is secretive about exactly how her outfit will look on stage in Liverpool, but gave a hint of what to expect:

It is quite an extensive number and there are so many details. Always when you have to create something, you have to “kill your darlings”. Now that we’ve had some time, me and Fadi al Khoury, my designer, have the stuff we didn’t have time to test. It’s a cinematic number so there’s a lot you can do.

This is actually what she has mentioned in one of her TikTok videos, that was published a couple of weeks ago:

@loreenofficial Let’s talk about “The Outfit” A massive thanks to the one and only Fadi el Khoury, who made this happen ❤️🙏🏽 🫶🏽 #FashionTok #loreentattoo #designer #eurovision2023 ♬ Tattoo – Loreen

Even though the resolution is still not public, an answer will be given at Loreen’s stand-in rehearsal, while her first technical rehearsal is scheduled for this Sunday 4/30.
