Her song “Cool Me Down” was a fan favourite in the Polish national final, and now Margaret has her sights set on conquering Sweden, with a live appearance on the summer singalong show Sommarkrysset.
“Cool Me Down” was written and produced by a Swedish dream team, including Arash who represented Azerbaijan at Eurovision in 2009, and Linnea Deb who co-wrote “Heroes”. Margaret’s Swedish record company is pushing the power pop of “Cool Me Down” in Sweden, and it’s already reached the top 40.
On the Sommarkrysset stage, she wore a hairy black jumpsuit (!) and some golden shoes, joined by two dancers. While Margaret gave a poptastic performance that rocked the Gröna Lund stage, her vocal performance didn’t match the studio version fans came to love. She seemed unable to deliver the lyric “Imma light a spark and let the crazy out”, with a prerecorded vocal always coming in to take over.
But Margaret put on a good show, and the Sommarkrysset crowd were loving the big pop sound she delivered.
