Krista Calling - Episode 1 - The Birth Of A New Stage

70 608 Megtekintés’s intrepid reporter Krista Siegfrids swaps wedding veil for hard hat and heads inside Rotterdam Ahoy to inspect the construction of the brand new Eurovision stage.
In this episode, Krista tours around the Host City, she takes a look at the Eurovision 2021 stage, meets with crew and calls with Gjon's Tears from Switzerland. Krista, our Eurovision Queen, also spots a royal visitor.
Throughout May, the Marry Me singer will host the exclusive backstage series Krista Calling, covering every square inch of the Contest from the turquoise carpet to the Grand Final, leaving no shred of confetti unturned to bring you all the biggest stories, gossip and drama.
Expect new episodes on 5, 15, 17, 19 and 21 May!

  • pity that the NL didn't have the contest since decades ago and when they can host it there's the pandemy and there can't be tourists, and a lot of people in the audience, and at same time they spent a lot of money to be the hostcountry. The Faves for this year are Malta, France, and Switzerland, let's hope in the next ESC the host country can make a normal contest as usual with lots of people there.

    • They had augmented reality in 2019 too! When Netta performed Toy, there were screens appearing from the roof that was AR and duplicates of herself on stage. And in the grand final they made the arena look like a massive runway for an airplane for the flag parade also using AR. I'm excited to see what they have in store for this year though.
