Since delegations are about to hit Stockholm, it's time to learn some new words, in order to greet them properly. Or........ you can do like me, and just find funny words and put them in context that does not make any sense at all. Therefore, the greeting today will be in German: Geschwindigkeitsbegrenzung!
Just so you know............
So, since Swedish Television could post this picture on their webpage, I see no reason why I can't do the same. This is from one of the super secret rehearsals going on in the venue right now, which clearly is not that super secret after all............. I'm sure that some of you that watched last year's show remember that little cartoon boy in Måns Zelmerlöw's winning performance. Well......we brought him to life! It's quite amazing what you can do with today's technology! Billy, the little boy we just brought to life, will fly too. I know....... we're awesome!
In the opening of Semi Final 1, Måns will perform his winning song together with a whole pile of cute little children. We would like to thank Lina Åhman for these photos, since we are a polite bunch.
But it's time for more hugs now! Here is Lucas, our head of lampies!
Here is Carsten who is the Cyberhoist tech from Litecom. He speaks German, so he can tell you what my greeting on top means.
Aaaaaaaaaaawwwwww! Pierre is one of delegation hosts, making sure that each and every delegation gets from point A, to B, to C and so on.
And here is his body double and team mate Carl-Philip. They've been running the backstage logistics on Melodifestivalen for years, and this is their third Eurovision Song Contest.
And here are the two superstars that make sure that ALL our dancers and performers for openings and interval acts have something to wear. This also includes our hosts of course. Say hello to Pia and Lisa, our wardrobe magicians!
Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm I need to visit wardrobe more often........ and now you know what the catchline stands for........
Lets wrap up today with a cute family moment from the Durango family! Seen in a bar on the southside of Stockholm yesterday evening.
Be nice to your kids. They'll choose your nursing home.
