A derogatory remark on Swedish representatives Fame made by the commentator of the Norwegian television seems to have caused some sort of an incident.

According to Greek website eurovision-greece.com, quoting Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet, Jostein Pedersen, the Norwegian commentator, described fame as �less charismatic than an IKEA bookcase. Dagbladet reckoned that Petersen should be prevented from acting as a commentator in the next Eurovision Song Contest.

The Nordic representative for EBU, Kjell Ekholm, is now said to be investigating the matter. “In Norway we call this humour. I have to laugh that this has become an issue in Sweden. This is typically Swedish,” was Pedersen�s own comment.
