Speaking on this week’s episode of the Melfest Monday podcast from The Euro Trip, singer Anton Ewald has explained the lack of audience has made him feel less nervous when performing in this year’s competition.
In an interview with Melfest Monday presenter James Rowe, Anton explained how the lack of audience has made things different for him this year.
“It [not having an audience] was kinda nice… I love performing in front of a live audience, but you could really focus on getting your camera angles right.”
“It was good in the way that I wasn’t as nervous before going on stage.”
Anton qualified for the final of this year’s Melodifestivalen from the second semi-final, and will perform in third position on Saturday.
As part of the interview Anton also discussed performing alongside fellow qualifiers Danny Saucedo and Eric Saade.
“I ran into Danny on the subway, believe it or not.”
“If feels great that they’re in the final too, they’re my friends. I expected them to go to the final not only are they great artists, they also have a sh*t tonne of fans.”
The winner of Melodifestivalen 2021 will represent Sweden at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest in Rotterdam.
