Earlier today, it was announced that Charlotte Perrelli and Edward af Sillén will be commentating on this year’s Eurovision Song Contest in Tel Aviv, Israel.
Edward revealed via his Twitter account that he will be joined by Charlotte in Tel Aviv to commentate on the contest. Edward is no stranger to commentating, just like Charlotte when it comes to competing at Eurovision!
2019 marks 20 years since Charlotte won Eurovision 1999 in Jerusalem, Israel with her song “Take Me To Your Heaven”. She went on to represent Sweden again in 2008 with “Hero”, and has competed in Melodifestivalen a number of times.
Meanwhile, Edward is a well known screenwriter and director. He has worked under these roles for the 2013 and 2016 Eurovision Song Contest in Sweden. Many fans will know him as he wrote the iconic 2016 interval act song “Love, Love, Peace Peace”.
While Edward and Charlotte will have the duty of commentating for Sweden, it was also announced that Eric Saade will give out the Swedish votes this year. Eric represented the country back in 2011 with his song “Popular” and finished 3rd. Most recently, he was one of the four presenters at this year’s Melodifestivalen.
Sweden in Eurovision 2019
John Lundvik will represent Sweden with his song “Too Late For Love” after winning this year’s Melodifestivalen. He won both the jury and public vote in the final. This includes receiving the maximum 12 points from all international juries that voted, something that had never been achieved before until now.
