Going on to joke about the room’s small size, he continued, “It’s a wall, there’s a wall over there, there’s a wall behind you and that’s where it all goes.”
Pointing to the clear glass window in front of him, he pointed the camera to look down at the arena and the stage, saying, “Through this glass, this is the Eurovision main stage.”
Grabbing his headset microphone and pointing to a control panel, he added: “That’s how I talk to you and I use these buttons, and soap comes out of it if I swear, but I hope it will not happen.”
