It has been just over a month since Kalush Orchestra won the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 in Turin Italy. Today the Live-On-Tape performances that were recorded in the event an artist could not perform in Turin have continued to be released. The next performance that was released was Rosa Linn’s performance of their song “SNAP”.
About Rosa Linn
Rosa Linn is a 21-year-old singer, songwriter, and producer from Vanadzor, Armenia. She is a part of Nvak, a program run by Tamar Kaprelian (Armenia 2015) for young musicians. Armenian head of delegation David Tserunyan describes her as “a small town girl with a big heart and her own story”. In an interview with Flaunt Magazine, she mentions having the ambition to become “Armenia’s first global music artist.”
What is a Live-On-Tape
A Live-On Tape performance is essentially a backup performance. Last year they were used in the event that a delegation could not travel to Rotterdam. This proved to be the case for the Australian delegation in 2021, due to the strict travel restrictions in place in the country at the time. Iceland also had to use a backup performance, however instead of the one they recorded in Iceland they used rehearsal footage, recorded in Rotterdam. Iceland had to use a Live-On tape due to several members of Daði & Gagnamagnið testing positive for Covid-19 during Eurovision 2021.
