Just a week after Cyprus’ Sophia Patsalides released the English version of her Junior Eurovision song, Julia Kedhammar has done the same. This girl knows one thing for sure: know who your competition is and try to outshine it! This version, entitled “You Are Not Alone”, comes in the form of a video consisting of shots taken at Lilla Melodifestivalen and during a studio recording of the song.
Normally I’m an advocate of countries singing in their own language, especially countries like Sweden (who rarely show off their language at Eurovision), but I am relieved to see an English version. Sometimes one can feel the emotion and sense the meaning of a foreign-language song, but “Du är inte ensam” doesn’t allow for that. Now that we can get a better sense of the lyrics in “You Are Not Alone”, we can enjoy the song even more!
