Last night's live webcasts of semi-final and final ran considerably behind schedule and included some very long "beauty shots." The recordings have now been trimmed down to the essential. Unfortunately, they will remain blocked for viewers calling them up from Denmark.
The two webcasts were the first ones streamed live with a 720 p setting. Viewers with sufficient bandwidth should have been able to fully appreciate the difference. Except, of course, for the viewers in Germany, where the live stream was once more blocked because of YouTube's fears over legal action by the German performing rights organisation GEMA. Unfounded in this case: WDSF had all the rights for the music cleared for worldwide broadcasting.
