I’m fine thank you.
How would you describe yourself as an artist?
I’m very focused, and i always want everything to be perfect!
Before talking about 2015, can we talk a bit about your 1st participation in MF? 2010 with Manboy! What do you remember the most from that year?
It was my swedish breakthrough! So it meant a lot. I had a lot of fun. But i also remember how bad it was, haha. i’m a better singer and dancer today. It’s been a gift for me to start my career that early so that i could become better quick!
In 2011 you won Melodifestivalen and went to Eurovision, how was that experience for you? what did you learn from it?
I learned to be myself in every situation. I loved eurovision! Its such an amazing thing for everyone to follow!
You are one of the participants of MF 2015. How did it all begin?
It was very spontaneous! I just remembered how much fun it is to do a performance in mello… so thats why I decided to do it again. I mean… i have already won before. So this time it was more about the pleasure. But of course. I’m back to win ESC!!! ;)
IT’S Been great! Kempe is such a melody freak! I love that!
What can you tell about the song?
Its an uptempo song with a little funk influences. Trumpets saxophones etc. my upcoming record will be more pop/urban/funk. So i combined that to a more pop mello sound. It became a good crossover!
Oh… that we had a lot of work to do before its gonna be finished! haha
Describe the song with 4 words:
Haha its not about that to be honest. i’m older now and i’m not planning a circus. But i always struggle to do performances that fit the song. And of course… a good performance is ME. Thats what i do! ;) you will see in gothenburg!
Nope not yet.
I haven’t heard the songs yet, so i really don’t know.
Did you watch MF 2014?
Nope i didn’t. I was not in sweden at the time. I needed some vacation! ;)
That its such a big thing for music of all kinds.
What do you dislike about Eurovision?
That some do not care about the music.. To some people its more like a circus!
