In order to make sure that both artists and audiences are able to make the most out of this year's Eurovision performances, the event organizers are implementing an "anti-booing" technology for the finals.

This technology was developed in response to a major embarrassment last year when the crowd was quite vocal during a performance by a pair of Russian contestants, where the audience criticized the country's stance on gay rights and presence in the Ukraine.

The anti-booing technology requires a performer to wear two earphones that are equipped with sound reducers to block out distractions if they should arise. Since countless time and money is put into creating awe-inspiring concert experiences, and it's not possible to please everybody anyway, it was only a matter of time before this technology got its time in the spotlight.
