Shortly after Måns Zelmerlöw won Eurovision 2015, the bookies at UNIBET drafted their list of favouites to host the Eurovision Song Contest 2016. Måns and Eurovision 2013 host Petra Mede led the way, but sitting pretty in third position was Eurovision 2014 contestant Sanna Nielsen. It made sense. She hosted Melodifestivalen 2015 and provided commentary for Sweden a few weeks later in Vienna. “It was wonderful,” she told us inside Wiener Stadthalle. “It’s so fun to challenge myself and jump into different situations that I’m not paritucularly used to. That’s my dream. To do things I enjoy.”
Well it looks like our sister from the north wants to live her dream again at Eurovision 2016. Expressen spoke with the “Undo” singer about the possibility and she is definitely keen. Sanna be like:
“It’s great that my name figures in these circles,” she said. “I have no idea if I’m up to date, but it is fun that people want to see me there. It would be very interesting. I love Melodifestivalen and Eurovision, so of course I want to be there if I’m asked.”
And she would love to be reunited with Melfest co-host Robin Paulsson: “And if two of us lead the program I want to have Robin Paulsson as a partner, it worked so well during Melodifestivalen!”
