BBC Mistakenly Interviews Käärijä Fan Instead of Artist During Eurovision Coverage

…By Alan Peterson for TDPel Media. BBC North West Tonight mistakenly interviewed a superfan dressed similarly to Käärijä, Finland’s entry to this year’s Eurovision, during their segment covering the semi-final performances.


The reporter spoke to the man, dressed in a luminous green top worn by Käärijä onstage, thinking he was the artist.

The man praised Liverpool as the host city, describing it as better organised than other cities he had visited.

Viewers of the show took to social media to point out that the interviewee was not Käärijä, but instead a fan.
