In the show interval act will perform Icelandic representative for Lisbon Ari Ólafsson, and 2018 2nd place Eleni Fourei. Moreover the Executive Supervisor of the Eurovision Song Contest Jon Ola Sand will attend to the show and it would be interesting to see his reaction in case Hatari wins the national. Hatari band announced before that reason they are participating in the contest is in order to propagate their political BDSM agenda against Israel and plan to use the Eurovision stage for provocations like their actions so far with the letters for the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. With that attitude so different from the Unity values of Eurovision a blessing from Jon Ola Sand will be wired especially after the shocking events of the last few days leading to Ukraine withdrawing the contest.
