Eurovision Song Contest is one of the most viewed broadcast based events, with more than 200 million people watching the Grand Final around the world. This live television production is highly sophisticated and features some of the highest production values in modern broadcasting. Many of the complicated shots and camera movements are programmed by computer. However, there are the shots that only can be achieved by a human being, and that are the closeup dynamic Steadicam shots. Those shots are based on planned and improvised camera movements which are performed by the most skilled Steadicam operators.  There is a zero tolerance for cinematography related glitches, which means that the best operators are selected for the job. This is the 2018 Eurovision production behind the scenes.
