How would you describe yourself as an artist?
I´m very powerful, passionated and devoted.
It started with Fredrik Kempe who contacted me and asked if we could write a song together. ”I see you” is the result of that collaboration.
It was a good experience to work with them . They cared a lot about the mixing process of the voice. That was new to me.
The song is about confessing and begging for forgiveness at the same time.
Describe the song with 4 words:
Naked, passionted, honest and cinematic..
Lets talk about the performance, what can we expect to see on stage?
The intension with the performance is to keep it intimate but at the same time dramatic.
Yes, i´ve painted the dress myself and I used one of my favorite vintage dresses as a model.

I’m looking forward to hear their songs and see their perfomances. It feels like christmas.
Sanna deserved to win.

I would like to compare the Eurovision Song Contest with the European Football Championship, where different nationalities compete against each other, but with respect and great love. Eurovision is a long-term project for peace and that thought makes me happy and I am very proud to be involved.
