She was the big-name interval act at the grand final of Sweden’s Melodifestivalen 2017. But don’t expect to see Zara Larsson at Eurovision anytime soon.
While completing the Wired auto-complete interview, the “Lush Life” and “Symphony” hitmaker answered with a definitive “no” when the topic of Eurovision came up.
Zara Larsson won’t do Eurovision
The auto-complete format sees celebrities answer the most popular questions people ask about them on Google. And Eurovision was one of the top queries for Zara.
“No” is her immediate response. But she elaborates: “Maybe you’ll catch me there in 20 years when I am really bored”.
However, like most Swedes, she’s an avid spectator from home: “I love, love, love to watch it though”.
For now, at least, it looks like her Melfest performance from three years ago will be the closest fans get to seeing Ms. Larsson grace the song contest stage. Then she sang her hits “Only You”, “I Would Like” and “Ain’t My Fault”.
Zara Larsson on the Eurovision movie
Eurovision itself may be off the agenda, but Zara is a huge fan of the movie version. “One of the best movies this year was Will Ferrell’s Fire Saga. The bullets I take for that movie! I think it’s perfection, honestly. I cry, so much. I laughed so much. He really embodied the spirit of Eurovision. I thought it was just incredible”.
A sequel is rumoured to be in the works, so maybe Zara would be open to a cameo. Who knows?
Watch the complete Wired interview below. Zara talks Eurovision from the 3:15 mark.
