Eric Saade

In 2010 a young Swedish manboy took part in Melodifestivalen for the first time, and on his second attempt the next year he won it. He kind of started the trend to win Melodifestivalen on the second attempt and he also started the trend of good Swedish results as he finished third in Düsseldorf, where he became quite popular.

He made headlines at both these appearances with his elaborate stage acts, which included showering on stage and the breaking of glass. Since then we have seen him as a green room reporter at Eurovision 2013, yet again as a contestant but with a worse result which probably did sting for the competetive young man, and in 2019 he was one of the hosts of Melodifestivalen.

This year he is back with a new song, and his eyes are yet again set on the prize as both the bookies and himself consider him one of the frontrunners for the ticket to Rotterdam. Hear Eric Saade tell us about his experiences and what we can expect from him this time around, when he takes time out of his extremely busy schedule where every minute is accounted for.
