The producer of the winner of “Eurovision” Duncan Lawrence — Wouter hardy spoke about the song that the artist performed in the final of the competition, reports Algemeen Dagblad.
Hardy acknowledged that work on the Arcade composition was carried out for two years. According to him, the song was written many arrangements in finding the best version. “We went all the way to Arcade… of different rates to a completely different way”, — he stressed.
The publication stresses that no rules were broken, because the song was performed live only once, and it can not be considered an official release.
After winning Lawrence online found video of the performance with a similar composition. This could be the occasion to review the results of the competition because it violated the main rule of the competition. Participating in “Eurovision” song must not be commercially released or publicly performed before 1 September of the year preceding the competition.
Lawrence scored 492 points. Second place was taken by Italian artist Mahmood with 465 points. Russian singer Sergey Lazarev has received 369 points and rounded out the top three.
