Before the rehearsals started in earnest at the Friends Arena today, I had a chance to have a very quick chat to friend of the website, Victor Crone. Here is what he had to say.
How are you Victor?
VC: I’m good, I’m good, yeah I’m good.
Last time we saw you, you were in Tel Aviv and congratulations on making the Final!
VC: Thank you, thank you, that was a good warm up. It was a crazy experience, this year has been a crazy experience so whatever happens is a bonus.
What experiences did you learn last year, that you’d brought to Melodifestivalen this year?
VC: Well I think the concept is kind of the same, with the press conferences and the staging and you know how much time you have on stage. Well even though it’s hard, don’t get too worked up – like if things aren’t working – like we had so many problems in Tel Aviv with things, take it easy – what ever happens, happens. That’s like the most important lesson I got – have fun and do your thing.
For any Irish fans that haven’t seen Melodifestivalen yet, can you give us an idea what “Troubled Waters” is about?
VC: Well, we use projectors, so for the eyes, it should be for like I’m standing on stage, but I’m actually laying down and then I get up, and again I’m alone on stage. I do my thing, I move a bit more than I did in Eurovision, which is interesting. Let’s see, it’s always a tough task too, depending on the days form. It feels fun and like, giving it the extra touch, so hopefully it’ll go well.
Best of luck for Saturday night and we will see you soon.
VC: Thank you, good to see you again.
