– It is a jättepositiv sense, but it has nothing to do with reality. It says nothing about how the country will vote on Saturday night. So I don't put so much emphasis on it, even if it is positive to get the feel how it is to be the favorite – and I have never been in the past, haha!
" I have just been trying to keep a regular routine. Right now, I live in hotels, in the usual case, I live on the island of Lidingö, just a short distance away from the hotel.

– now, If it becomes so, it is because of the song which I feel is a international dimensions. It has positivity, joy, and speed, and the gospel is something I personally have missed in Eurovision. We shall take back into the competition, " says John Lundvik.
