An apology.

Watching Salem sing and collect his awards at the Grammisgalan, I thought that he didn't look too well but had (wrongly) assumed that this might have been as a result of over-celebrating, resulting in a sore throat.

I would like to apologise therefore, because I got it wrong. I have now found out the truth about Wednesday night. Salem had been very ill before the awards and there was a strong possibility that he wouldn't have been able to perform. He had been treated with cortisone throughout the day but deteriorated prior to the show. Crisis meetings ensued backstage. But in the spirit of "The show must go on" Salem bravely soldiered on and sang "It's True" in a lower register.

Well done Salem - and get well soon!
