Today TIX is back on stage of H3 Arena in Fornebu to record his performance for Eurovision Song Contest 2021. Stig Karlsen hopes that it will be possible to travel to Rotterdam for the show but they are preparing live on tape performance just in case contest organises in some other scenario which excludes live performance.
