Hej Eric! Welcome back to Melodifestivalen! How are you?
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!!! ;) 
"Sting" is the title of your song and its written by Arash Fahmi, Fredrik Kempe, Hamed ”K-one” Pirouzpanah and David Kreuger. How was it working with them?
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!
What did you feel the 1st time you heard it?
Oh… that we had a lot of work to do before its gonna be finished! haha

Describe the song with 4 words:
2010 = Water and 2011 = Glass, what can we expect to see on stage this year?
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! 
Do you already know what you are going to wear for the semifinal?
Nope not yet.
What do you think about the participants from semifinal 1?
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! ;) 
What do you like about Eurovision?
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! 
Tell me the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear the word:
Nightmare: FAIL
Christer Björkman: Sweet like candy
Aftonbladet: dangerous
Pizza: big NO
DPOV: My dick’s point of view
Lemur: måns zelmerlöw
Måns Zelmerlöw: lemur
Nudity: Pleasure 
Fans: LOVE
Dreams: future
What are your plans for 2015?
My plans are BIG.
