#BIRTHDAY: Sanna Nielsen from Sweden is 37 today
Do you prefer a banger of a song, or are you more a ballad-lover? Are you the first on the dancefloor when that Schlager beat kicks off? Or is it something a little slower that tickles your fancy?
Today’s birthday girl Sanna Viktoria Nielsen eventually got to the big Eurovision stage in 2014 with a big brassy ballad. I say ‘eventually’, because she’s been one of those Melodifestivalen triers. She been there more times than we care to count, and she used a variety of styles. It was obviously worth the wait, as she finished second in her semi-final and third in the Grand Final. Should she have finished two places higher? Is she better at a non-ballad song? You tell us.
