Benjamin Ingrosso represented Sweden at Eurovision 2018 finishing in a respectable 7th place. Since then he has been very busy making music and just last Friday he released his first album. Furthermore, he also released the video of “Paradise” his collaboration with French DJs Ofenbach.
Talent show theme
Benjamin collaborated with French DJ duo Ofenbach for the song “Paradise“. Ofenbach consists of Dorian Lo and César de Rummel and they have recently established themselves as prominent DJs in France and beyond. In 2017, they released “Katchi” in collaboration with Nick Waterhouse, topping the charts in several countries and the video counts more than 120 million views. The video of the incredibly catchy song with Swedish star Benjamin features cool Got Talent vibes with the 2 DJs acting as judges. Although Benjamin does not appear in the judging panel, he seems to be enjoying himself getting fresh looking backstage.
As we reported a couple of weeks back, the trio also performed the song on the final of the Italian beauty peagant Miss Italia.

Benjamin at Eurovision
Benjamin Ingrosso became Sweden’s 58th entrant at Eurovision after winning the longest and fan beloved selection show Melodifestivalen. He had previously made an attempt to represent Sweden in 2017 with his song “Good Lovin” and ended in 5th place in final. However, in 2018 he emerged victorious with his entry “Dance You Off!”. In Lisbon, he continued Sweden’s streak of successful results qualifying from the second semi-final with second place and finishing 7th in the grand final with 274 points, placing 2nd with the juries. Shockingly enough, however, he only scored 21 points with the televoters.
