Three times Eurovision Song Contest winner Johnny Logan has, in an interview with Danish newspaper Ekstra Bladet talked about the Contest and the way it has changed over the years. He is dissatisfied with the missing orchestra, the voting system and the free language rule. Johnny Logan describes the current Contest as being a karaoke contest which actually does more harm to the performers as they get no support from real musicians: It should be allowed with orchestras. I can't understand why there is only space for sound as a backing track. It lifts you musically to have an orchestra.
