Exclusive: Video Interview with Loreen (Sweden)Written by Marc Calleja Bayliss
The favourite of this years' Eurovision Song Contest is Loreen who will be representing Sweden with the song Euphoria which has been written by none other than Thomas G:Son and Peter Bostrom, veterans of the competition. Yesterday, there was the first rehearsal for Sweden and despite it looking quite good on the screens, she failed to live up to the expectation noting that she has a cold at the moment and was therefore holding back vocally. Nevertheless, alongside her head of delegation, the 1992 representative Christer Bjorkman, she has managed to keep up all of her respective promotional appearances and has been receiving the rest of the international media for interviews and comments and that is why, our team in Baku, has met up with Loreen following her rehearsal.
In the interview which is almost fifteen minutes long, one could notice that Juergen Boernig and Lilian Brunell spoke to Loreen on a number of issues including the fact that she is a mysterious performer to which she replied that she is just being herself. Nevertheless, whilst speaking, one could see this element. Loreen was the clear favourite in this years' edition of the Melodifestivalen despite failing to qualify to the final with last years' entry My Heart Is Refusing Me which only managed to make it through to the second chance competition. She also speaks about the focus by trying to stay out of the media and focus on her performance. It will be quite interesting to see how it evolves later on this week.
