Back in March, we were sad to see Molly Petterson Hammar crash out in the Andra Chansen round of Melodifestivalen 2016. But we were thrilled to learn that she would appear at Eurovision as a songwriter, having co-written Malta’s entry “Walk on Water”.
Now Schlagerprofilerna, the successful Sweden-based Eurovision and Melodifestivalen web site, has revealed another Eurovision 2016 connection for MPH.
As it turns out, songwriters originally submitted “Miracle” — Azerbaijan’s Eurovision 2016 entry — to Melodifestivalen, and with Molly’s voice on the demo. Jurors chose “Hunger” instead, leaving “Miracle” out in the cold in Sweden.
Schlagerprofilerna revealed the news in their popular podcast series, which features a number of special guests in the run-up to Eurovision.
On one of the recent podcasts the super hot and über talented Melfest dancer Edin Jusuframic took part, reviewing a number of this year’s songs.
When it was time to discuss Azerbaijan’s song and its starlet Samra, Edin revealed that he was on the jury of Melodifestivalen 2016 that picked the final batch of songs for this year’s final.
After watching Samra werk it all Eurovision season, can you try and imagine Molly singing that song? And are you as excited as us that Molly has her fingerprints all over Eurovision? Let us know in the comments box below!
