Hej Manda! The Melodifestivalen is getting closer, how are you?
I'm feeling so happy! I can hardly wait!!

How would you describe yourself as an artist?
I have a very unique style and apperance, and my music shows a lot of emotions which is very important for me.
You are one of the 32 participants of Melodifestivalen 2014, how did it all begin?
It began with me going to a meeting with Joy and Linnea Deb, caused we had a mutual friend that thought we should work together. Everything felt great and I knew exactly who they were and they are amazing song writers, so it all started from there!
Your song its called "Glow" and its written by Joy & Linnéa Deb, Melanie Wehbe & Charlie Mason. How did you feel working with them?
I didn't write it with them so I tried out for the song kinda close to when the applications were gonna close. We applied for another song earlier but this one was just perfect. They are so proffessional and I'm honoured to work with them.
What can you tell me about the song? whats the story behind it?
This song means a lot to us all in the GLOW-team :-) It's about being strong in who you are as a person and not changing yourself cause of other peoples opinion and all of us five stand up for that.

What did you feel the 1st time you heard it?
Happiness! It just makes me happy.
Describe the song with 4 words.
encouraging, positive, hit and HIT! ;-)

Lets talk about the performance! what can we expect to see on stage?
It's gonna be very simple but at the same time different and very colourful from what you've seen before.
Do you know what you are going to wear for the semifinal? any hint?
Yes, I do. A lot of colours. ;-)

What do you think about the other artists in semifinal 2?
They are all amazing artists and they really push me to deliver better and better.
Did you watch Eurovision 2013? any favorite?
Yes! Im a huge fan. I LOVED "O mie" by Moldova. She reminded me a little bit of myself as an artist..

What do you like about Eurovision?
That it’s entertaining of course and a lot of different kinds of music genres.
Give me the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear the word:
