What happens if an artist gets COVID?

A number of scenarios have been put in place which are:

  • If the artist in question has completed their first individual rehearsal, then that will be used as the performance clip in the show.

  • If the artist tests positive before the Live TV Final, but had performed in the Opening Night Show then the performance from the Opening Night Show will be used.

  • If they are unable to perform at the venue at all then the current plan is to use a pre-recorded reserve clip with their live vocal and it will be integrated with some elements of the lighting and stage design for their performance.
