I actually feel calm, I'm so proud of the song and number.

You're coming back to Melodifestivalen after a great result last year, what are your expectations for this year? what did you learn from last year experience?
My expectations and hopes are high, I wanna be up there again and fight in the top three. I learned a lot about working with the camera, so now I'm much more prepared for the rehearsing on the stage.....I hope :-)

How would you describe yourself as an artist?
I'm all round I think, it can be positive and negative because you don't have that one thing that you're really great at. But it works for me and I can work in a lot of different areas and I love that. To try new things and challenge your self.
Skyline is the title of your song, what can you tell me aboit it? what is the song about? what did you think the 1st time you listened it?
It's a uptempo song with a lot of happiness and energy. The song can be about a lot of things, it's in the ear of the listener:) but for me it's about a gang of guys doing a night in the city and were gonna sees the moment.
First time I heard it, it honestly gave me the same feeling like shout it out did.

Describe your song with 4 words
Fresh, happy, energy, dance
Fernando Fuentes is one of the songwriters of your songs in MF, he is from Chile, do you know some words in spanish?

That its a competition.......

Last year your song got in the competition because Anna Järvinen withdrew and this year you are competing against her. What do you think about the artist from semifinal 1?
It's an exiting start of the competition with a lot of different genres and a lot of new faces in this competition .its going to be hard.

I'm releasing my second album, doing a tour with Diggiloo, my own television show "fixa showen" have premier in sep and some other stuff that I can't talk about.
