In the lead up to Melodifestivalen 2021, we had a chance to speak to the upcoming participants taking part in this year’s competition. We had the chance to speak to 2019 Idol Sweden winner Tusse, who will be making his debut to the competition with the song ‘Voices’.
During our conversation with Tusse, we talked about his experience, competing in signing competitions, where he competed in Talang (Sweden’s version of Got Talent), and winning Idol Sweden. He mentioned that his favourite performance is his cover of ‘How Will I Know’ by the late Whitney Houston.
In addition to singing competitions, we also talked about Eurovision and Melodifestivalen. He mentioned that Christer Björkman, who was a guest judge when he performed Conchita Wursts’s ‘Rise Like a Phoenix’ and told him that he is welcome to Melodifestivalen whenever he wants. Tusse’s participation did not to come to fruition until now.
