We may be 10 months away from Malmö, but Sweden’s celebrity circle is already getting catty over who will have the privilege of hosting next year’s Eurovision Song Contest.
The Swedes recently honored Loreen by installing her photo at Stockholm’s Arlanda Airport. Now it’s our turn. Mariyan Georgiev, our newest blogger in Bulgaria, unearths videos of Loreen before she became Queen of Eurovision. A true star shines even before winning a contest like Eurovision. That was certainly the case with Lorén Talhaoui. Eight years […]
It’s out with the old and in with the new at Stockholm’s Arlanda International Airport.

Thomas Gustafsson—the Swedish composer and songwriter known as Thomas G:son—has written 58 songs that have competed in national Eurovision selections from Denmark to Romania. It’s probably tough not to repeat yourself when you’re spitting out that volume of music. Apparently it’s tough not to repeat other people, too….
