SWEDEN : Malena Ernman – La Voix
38 year old opera songstress Malena Ernman has beaten out some very tough (and as always, some very kitsch) competition in this year’s Melodifestivalen to be chosen to represent Sweden at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest. A seasoned performer on the stage, starring in a number of high profile operatic roles, the singer will perform the up-tempo pOp/dance number ‘La Voix’ (French for ‘The Voice’). The song itself could best be described as ‘pOpera’ and it’s singing will mark the first time a Swedish entry to the competition has been sung in French – though the verses are in English.
