LONG LIVE THE KING!
No, not me........ the REAL King!
King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden is turning 70 today! Sweden has been a Monarchy for almost 1 000 years, and most of us Swedes are VERY proud of our Royal Family. Those that are not can F off if you ask me.
Right now we're rehearsing interval acts, openings and voting. All SUPER secret, so we can't show you anything from this. Besides one thing! It looks like the Bolibompa Dragon is one of our secret guest stars in Green Room............Imagine that!
So, since we can't show what is going on inside the venue, let's take the Segway out for a spin and see if we can find someone to shock!
Why not start at the top, with our Head of Press: Lotta Loosme. Luckily this lovely lady wasn't too busy for a quick hug from moi!
Or Sven! Proud and longlasting member of the change over crew.
Or our dear choreographer Martin Kagemark, who has been putting so much blood, sweat and tears into the stand-in rehearsal students.
And his co choreographer Lotta Furebäck who has put in just as much passion in this as Martin. Once we come in to the real rehearsals, they will be the link between the artist, the delegation and the multi camera director regarding the choreo, which cameras to look in and when, turn this way instead of that, and all the other small details that make ALL the difference between a good and a GREAT on-camera performance. Can she dance? Well........... she toured the world for decades with the Swedish Dance Group BOUNCE. Click on her image, and you can see for yourself. The clip is the interval from Eurovision 2000.
Mmmmmmmmm! Jaska was our Head Rigger on Eurovision 2007 in Finland. He is here doing big KABOOM with Pyroman!
Here is Linda from Gothenburg. She is working with the "feel good" department, making sure that we have fresh fruit, coffee, tea and cookies. Is she involved with the fish massacre that is going on in catering?????
Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeey! I found NEMO!
Rooooooooooooooooock! Björn Fors is not only incredibly funny, and he is not only a lighting tech on our crew. He has a band too! Click on his image to see how awesome he and his band are!
What's black and white and eats like a horse?
Now we are off to celebrate VAPPU. If you don't know what that is, please click HERE!
