BACKSTAGE MAY 17: EMMELIE MEETS LOREEN
Vasil Dimitrov (Bulgaria)
Today Denmark’s contestant in the Eurovision Song Contest, Emmelie de Forest, met Eurovision winner Loreen for the first time in Malmö. I loved Loreen’s song and performance last year, so I’ve been looking so much forward to meeting her, Emmelie says.
With their bare feet and organic performances, many Eurovision fans have been comparing the two Scandinavian singers. And Loreen herself does feel, she has a lot in common with Emmelie. It’s great to meet Emmelie. It’s so nice to stand next to somebody who belongs to the same world as mine, Loreen says. She stands almost for the same things that I do. She’s barefooted. She has the same energy. And we also like the same jewelries and designers.
Last year’s Eurovision winner is now ready to pass on the Eurovision torch, and she could very well be doing that to Denmark’s Emmelie on Saturday. I believe, Emmelie has a really, really good chance of winning!
