Chances of contagion
In any case, the benidorm fest has designed three possible scenarios in case the interpreters cannot perform live after testing positive for covid.
The first of them is if the artist tests positive after carrying out the first test, something that is not applicable to Tanxugueiras since the first rehearsals begin this Monday.
The second scenario would also not be possible for the Galician group since it would consist of putting the video clip of the song as a participation. However, Terra does not have a published video clip.
The third scenario, therefore, would be the one applicable to the artists and in it "RTVE would make a montage with the song and images of the artist that it has", as explained by the benidorm fest in his web page.
In addition, the festival explains on its website that the head of the delegation, Eva Mora, explained in a press conference prior to the benidorm fest that "due to the health crisis caused by the coronavirus, it has been impossible to record reserve performances".
