If you were the journalist what would you ask to Ace Wilder? and tell me your answer.
Where did u get your stage name? I'm pretty reserved in real life and Im not really like that on stage. So one day I just decided that Ace was tougher than alice. Wilder comes from everyone thinking that I sound like Kim Wilde. I just happen to be a bit wilder. ;-)
Hello Ace! The Melodifestivalen is getting closer, how do you feel right now?
I'm extremely excited and a little nervous. I can't wait to show off our number!!

How would you describe as an artist?
I love putting on a I would describe myself as an authentic pop artist. It's gotta be cool clothes, great dancing and awesome songs! 
You are one of the 32 participants of Melodifestivalen, how did it all begin?
It all began with the song I wrote with joy and Linnea deb. My record label thought it would be fun to see if it would even be considered but I was warned that it was a long shot since its so "different". I was shocked when I got the news that I had been chosen! 
The title of your song is "Busy doin' nothin'", what can you tell me about it? whats the story behind the song?
The song is based on a summer I had a couple of years ago. I just learned that sometimes living life means tuning the world out... It was awesome!

Describe the song with 4 words:
New, fresh, exciting, POW!
I've seen some of the pics from the rehearsals! what can you tell me about the performance? what can we expect to see on stage?
I don't want to reveal anything yet but I can promise that its gonna be off the wall!
Do you know what you are going to wear for the semifinals? any hint?
It hasn't really been decided yet so no hint yet. :-)
What do you think about the other participants in semifinal 3?
I hate to sound boring but all of them are gonna deliver a kick ass show. And I'm truly flattered that I get to be on the same stage.

Did you watch Eurovision 2013? any favorite?
I loved Margaret Berger ( Norway). I just got a chance to work with her and her voice is killer, not to mention her song!
What do you like about Eurovision?
That it brings so many countries together. It's almost like football; even though its a competition there is a unity with everyone that is watching. I love that! 

Tell me the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word:
2013: Change
Fear: Not letting it stop me.
Wind machine: Hair getting stuck in your lipgloss
Friday: Bitches Like Fridays!!
Ikea: Smart
Hashtag: Clever
Stage: Work it!
Clones: Want one
What are your plans for 2014?
Like I said, not very good at planning... ;-)
We'll see!
Is there anything you want to say to close the interview?
I'm so proud of what my team and I have achieved in such a short amount of time and I can't wait until we get to share it with everyone else. 2014 here we come!

Thanks to Ace for the interview! Good luck in Melodifestivalen!
