Εurovision 2024: 5miinust & Puuluup will not withdraw from the contest!

We are just hours away from the Grand Final and the moment when we will find out the winner of the 68th Eurovision Song Contest. The atmosphere seems to be increasingly tense in Malmö Arena.

As a reminder, the Dutch singer Joost Klein will not be competing in the Grand Final of this year’s contest. According to an EBU statement, the Swedish police investigated a complaint from a female production member, following an incident after Joost’s performance on Thursday in the Second Semi-Final. In fact, despite rumours from international media, the incident has not involved any participant or mission. Thus, the Grand Final of the 68th edition of the competition will be held with 25 countries.

After the exclusion of the Netherlands, in addition to the strong reactions, rumours of other countries withdrawing from the competition in protest began to circulate. The most intense rumour was on social media regarding the Estonian delegation. However, according to exclusive information, the Estonian representatives will compete as usual in tonight’s final, as they continued their preparations and came out in today’s rehearsal of the family show.

Netherlands: Joost Klein questioned by Swedish police after complaint from SVT employee!

Today is the night of the final and it is still unclear what the EBU will decide regarding the Netherlands’ participation in the Grand Final.  According to Dutch public television, Joost Klein was questioned by the police, following a complaint by an employee of SVT.

According to the police report, Joost Klein threatened her, during the first dress rehearsal, on Friday, May 11.

Police say Joost Klein was questioned late last night. The woman who filed the complaint was also questioned. The case has now been handed over to the prosecutor. The case can take weeks to settle.

Therefore, we can not predict what will be the final decision regarding the Netherlands’ participation in tonight’s Grand Final of the Eurovision Song Contest. The managing director of Dutch public television has arrived in Malmö and is in talks with the EBU to decide what will eventually happen with their participation.

We remind you that yesterday, Joost Klein was not able to perform his song for the jury because of the ongoing investigation by the EBU.  Instead, the video of his performance from the Semi-final was shown.  By the time this article was written a final decision has not been made.  The online voting for the rest of the world has not started as a consequence.

We will keep you informed once we get the final outcome of this case and the official announcements from the EBU.

Eurovision 2024: EBU in crisis meeting! | Joost Klein stopped from rehearsing this afternoon!

As you read in one of our previous articles, one of the big favorites, Dutch Joost Klein, didn’t show up at the rehearsal for the Eurovision final earlier today.

Svergies Radio’s Carolina Norén, reported from within the press centre that the EBU is currently in a crisis meeting investigating an incident they say occurred yesterday.

She mentioned that she could actually see towards the Dutch box where Joost Klein is supposed to be and the Dutch delegation is waiting for a decision.

She also asked the Israeli delegation briefly, if they had reported anything but they denied anything like that. It was at yesterday’s press conference that it was noticed that Joost Klein had the Dutch flag on him.

Last night, when the Israeli participant Eden Golan received a critical question regarding security concerns on this year’s contest, and the moderators interrupted and said she wouldn’t need to respond, Joost then asked, why not? But this is unclear that the Dutch favourite was stopped from performing earlier for that reason.

According to information to SVT, a physical confrontation has occurred between the artist and a photographer.

So we have to wait for an official statement from the EBU and hope that things clear up a bit. Joost Klein is still in the arena, the Netherlands delegation is sitting and waiting for a decision.

Eurovision 2024: Τhe Netherlands’ first rehearsal!

Last on the stage of Eurovision Song Contest 2024 for today, are the Netherlands! Joost Klein with his song“Europapa” is ready for his first rehearsal on the stage of Malmö Arena, in Sweden!

Who is Joost Klein?

Dutch rapper, composer, and former YouTuber Joost Klein was born on November 10, 1997. He is known for his songs “Scandinavian Boy”“Wachtmuziek” and “Friesenjung”, and his albums M Van Marketing, Albino and 1983. Even though the majority of his tracks are hip-hop, he frequently incorporates electronic music elements into his performances, such as drum and bass, hardstyle, and gabber.

The Rehearsal

Our final rehearsal for today is from musician, writer and artist Joost Klein from the Netherlands, who will be wrapping up the second Semi-Final with his banging dance track Europapa. Come for the high-energy rave and the lyrical tour of Europe, stay for the bit at the end where it goes full happy hardcore.

Fans of Joost will be delighted that his signature dance moves and giant blue shoulder pads have be shipped to Malmö, along with a keyboard player dressed as a fluffy blue and yellow bird – presumably to represent both the EU flag but also conveniently repping Sweden. The LED wall is a manic visual tour of the lyrics, and the whole thing is three minutes of infectious dance energy, with Joost flanked on stage by two female dancers in white tracksuits.
