He won Melodifestivalen with impressive support from the international juries before climbing the charts with his winning song “I Can’t Go On”.
And now Robin Bengtsson is proving that he can and will go on….a Eurovision promo tour! He’ll be taking over Amsterdam, London, Tel Aviv and Madrid — that’s all around Europe honey!
Following countless messages from international fans and growing support for his song, Sweden’s latest darling decided to announce his presence for almost every single pre-party in the Eurovision calendar. That means we’ll see Robin oozing attitude and sex appeal all over the place before hitting the ground in Kyiv. This is how you put in the miles.
Robin might not bring his treadmill for the constant travelling, but his presence will be appreciated. Last year Frans only met with fans in London, singing “If I Were Sorry” to a crowded Café de Paris.
In our recent interview, we asked Mr. Bengtsson about all the love he received from the juries. Where does it come from?
“I love the song,” he says. “I think it’s a great song and the whole package they liked — from walking in on back stage and the treadmills. It brought something new to the competition and perhaps that’s what they liked.”
WHERE WILL ROBIN BENGTSSON SING?
From Stockholm to London, Robin Bengtsson’s first stop is going to be the United Kingdom. On April 2, he will perform for a sold out Café de Paris in Leicester Square. There are 19 other acts confirmed for the “London Eurovision Party” thus far.
After that he will fly to Israel for the majestic “Israel Calling” event in Tel Aviv on April 4 and will come back to central Europe on April 8 for “Eurovision in Concert” in Amsterdam.
His last stop before Kyiv will be in Madrid where he will meet Spanish fans in this year’s new pre-party event. That’s on April 15. We’re sure that there won’t be any #eurodrama associated with his presence.
Are you excited to see Robin in this year’s promo tour? Are you going to be at any of the above mentioned parties? Tell us everything in the comments section and in our brand new app!
WHY DOESN’T MORE COURTRIES USE AN INTERNATIONAL JURY IN THEIR NATIONAL SELEKTION? Sinnce 2011 has Sweden used an international selektion in our nationalselection. At SVTs mellodifestivalblogg there were a artikel about the corrolation between the international juries result in our melfest and the result from the jury in ESC. The writer Gustav made this toplist were he matches the points in melfest whith the place of the song in ESC Måns Zelmerlöw 122 points at the melfest – The juries number one in ESC Loreen 114 points at the melfest – The juries number one in ESC Robin Stjernberg 91… Read more »
Mans was much better, with more charisma.
Best song, best singer.
Good work Sweden
@Purple Mask here is another one for you: https://youtu.be/USF55GUALyQ
Do you think 5 Western countries will be Top 5 with juries? Quite unlikely.
Italy will be Top 5 there.
Televote agree with 4 (not the order). Armenia is not happenig, Russia is stronger. And if Belgium is that good on stage to lead juries.. it’ll be Top 5 in the televote.
What a dissapointment that after-party, he was often off pitch
Sweden will win! For sure!
Stop sexualising him, “sex appeal” not every Eurofan is smitten by the singers
Sweden or Belgium will win. I predict Sweden , Belgium have some chance if they go to TOP 3 with televote.
My prediction TOP 5 with juries 1.Belgium 2.Sweden 3.Australia 4.Denmark 5.The Netherlands
TOP 5 with televote 1.Italy 2.Sweden 3.Romania 4.Bulgaria 5.Armenia
TOP 5 1.Sweden 2.Belgium 3.Italy 4.Armenia 5.Denmark
If so many fans are talking about Robin vs The Gorilla, why not a poll only with these 2 countries? Maybe will help people that want to bet.
Well he didn’t make a seious effort at the after party.. Who can blame him?
People keep saying Sweden is overrated but they never see why they’re not overrated by the bookies and the press. It’s because your country can’t even put on a decent pre-selection show or produce a song that people want to download after the contest.
To be honest I really don’t see how this is top 10 let alone top 3 according to the bookies.
@dontcareaboutgodgarina i see something is pressed https://youtu.be/IyuUWOnS9BY
Get that promo boo. I hope apart from these, if he can, he also appears at some high profile TV shows for the general public
Sweden is very overrated this year.
I will go.But its on a later date.And I don’t know if the Spanish Eurofans are very pleased this year so I don’t know if the party will have a party mood. Also we will have fewer acts. 🙁 :`(
Have fun Purple. 🙂 you are freaking beautiful.
Nobosy is going to Moscow this year? 😀
Yay!! “Israel Calling” 🙂
Hey! Lituania – DISQ????? Plagiat – Stevie Wonder – Superstition – (Live @ the White House) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ekkkD8HU944?
@Ddraven4 “Meanwhile countries like Portugal are going nowhere for promotion. RTP truly is run by idiots.”
Doing the promo tour and appearing on all the National Finals never helped Anggun much though did it? 22nd in the contest and nill point with the televoting.
Robin is great! ESC2017 winner!
Well, I will see him in Kyiv after all, so I am not sad! 🙂
@rigged: Awww. Can’t you go to the Madrid party? Hugs.
It will be nice to see someone singing “you’re so fricking beautiful” to me, after so long. 😛
Good! He needs some serious promo around Europe to keep on growing as a contender against invicible Italy.
Off topic: about Salvador’s health issue, I’ve just read that he needs a heart transplant and that Portugal may withdraw from this year’s ESC. I hope everything will be fine for him and that, even if I dislike his song, he’ll be able to perform in Kyiv.
It’s going to be interesting to see how the performance and singing go without the treadmills and dancers.
@Ddraven Salvador has cardiac issues I think. Maybe he wants to rest.
Can I just know why you didn’t write anything about Kasia’s promo tour? I mean I dont want you to write about her, but I want to know why you didn’t do it? 🙁
@Ddraven4 Please, read more before you speak out. There is a serious reason to why Salvador ain’t doing any promo.
You are a bad person.Trying to make us all jealous. 🙁 *storms off the room with loud steps* 😛
HOOOOOLYYY OMG, SEEING HIM IN AMSTERDAM!
Meanwhile countries like Portugal are going nowhere for promotion. RTP truly is run by idiots.
He is the first swedish contestant ever to do this kind of serious promo. Charlotte Perrelli did some TV and Måns did Eurovision in concert, but that’s pretty much it. Robin is really working it ! Sweden is in it to win it again. Only a gorilla can possibly stop the swedish bandwagon!
He is I think first singer from Sweden that goes to Eurovision parties all around Europe.
Yesssss israel calling is the best party in town…welcome to israel robin 🙂
I didn’t know Israel Calling is happening this year too!
I guess I’ll see Robin on April 2nd then. 🙂
