Mariette slayed during Melodifestivalen 2015 and her song ‘Don’t Stop Believing‘ netted her a Top 3 result on the night of the final in Stockholm.
Today, SVT announced Mariette will be their spokesperson during the Grand Final and reveal who’s receiving douze points from Sweden.
Homegirl Mariette will be playing it cool as Sweden’s spokesperson.
She told SVT, “Spokespersons tend to be very neat and nice…I will try not to be rigid but I will be nervous.”
She added, “I will probably just be straight forward and give Sweden’s votes.”
Mariette described her time during Melodifestivalen 2015 as a total joy and she has an EP on the way, with a tour to follow in summer.
Måns Zelmerlöw won the competition and will sing ‘Heroes’ for Sweden in Vienna.
Who preceded Mariette as Sweden’s spokespersons?
Spokespersons for Sweden have a long history of being former Melodifestivalen contestants. Alcazar presented the votes in 2014, YOHIO in 2013, Lynda Woodruf (aka Sarah Dawn Finer) in 2012, Danny Saucedo in 2011 and Eric Saade in 2010 to name just a few!
Mariette will present the Swedish points during the Grand Final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2015 on May 23 in Vienna.
Mariette! Only Brequette for Spain and Lena for Germany and its all done. Wouldn’t mind Valentina Monetta for San Marino.
Thanks Sweden, great choice.
But still… wish she won Melodifestivalen
Couldn’t agree more with Calvin, lol.
Absolutely LOVE Mariette, her song would’ve been my #1 favourite of the contest had she made it through. I hope she does get to Eurovision sometime as a performer, but for now I’ll enjoy seeing her present votes.
I was worried I would never hear from her again
great. but I would have preferred Jon Henrik.. but good luck to Mariette 🙂
That’s the best news of the day ! Go Mariette 🙂
Great! She was my favourite in Melfest.
Really great choice! <3 😀
Couldn't be anyone better to announce Sweden's points other than the mysterious (We Are)ONE & only Butterfly Witch *MARIETTE* ! <3 🙂
She deserved absolutely her 3rd place in Melodifestivalen! <3 🙂
She even finished 2nd in juries alone! 🙂
Hope she wins the Melodifestivalen some time and go to Vision! <3 🙂
I was honestly half-expecting Filippa Bark.
I would’ve much preferred every reference to Mariette in this article to be replaced by Måns and every reference to Måns in this article to be replaced by Mariette, but this is still exciting news!
Her or Jon Henrik really should have won..:(
