Anna Bergendahl is the first Swedish entry in the history of Eurovision to fail to qualify for the final, but y’all are still showing her some love. Wiwi’s readers have named the 18-year old singer and former Swedish Idol finalist their favorite Nordic act at Eurovision.
At a press conference following the second semi-final, Bergendahl tried to stay positive about her historic loss. “I think I did all I could. There’s nothing that I would have changed. I represented Sweden exactly the way I wanted to and could.” She also said she was pleased that Denmark and Georgia made it through, and that she hopes that Israel wins the whole thing. Despite the smiles, she seemed to take a swipe at the Netherlands’ Sieneke, saying that she didn’t want to be the type of artist who has a clown on stage.
