Hello Robin! Your semifinal is getting closer, how do you feel right now?
I’m really nervous but mostly excited; I have a good feeling about this song!
How would you describe yourself as an artist?
Lots of energy on stage, entertaining and puts a lot of effort on the singing.
You are one of the 32 artists on MF 2013. How did it all begin?
We first had a ballad in mind but I didn't feel like singing a slow song so we started writing and "YOU" came up. I'm so glad they picked it.
"You" is the name of your song, what’s the song about? What is the story behind the song?
The story behind the song for me is the love to my family and friends and even fans that has been standing by my side always. It’s a song about thankfulness, to appreciate what you have and always be thankful.
It’s especially pointed towards my Dad who raised me and my little sister without having much, but always took care of us and supported us to do what we love.
Describe your song with 4 words?
Majestic, powerful, original, pop.
What can you tell me about the performance? What can we expect?
I’m usually running around like a crazy guy on stage but even though I could've in this song I won't. I want to tell the story through the song with the "less is more" concept.
But it’s “schlager” so I'm sure we will have some cool effects as well!
Do you know what you are going to wear for the semifinal?
Yes! A tailor made costume with some cool details.
What do you think about the other acts in the semifinal 4?
I think they're exciting, I'm very eager to see what Army of Lovers will do on stage as well as Ulrik Munther who became a huge success last year.
What do you like about Eurovision?
It’s a people festival, all the countries getting together just to celebrate the love and the music!
What do you dislike about Eurovision?
Got nothing on that one :)
Apart from Melodifestivalen, what are your plans for this year?
To release my own album for which I've been writing the songs myself.
To start playing everywhere and get to meet new friends!
Is there anything you want to say to close the interview?
I hope you all enjoyed the interview and I hope I'll see you in Eurovision!
