Benjamin Ingrosso was born in 1997. He has been active in the music industry from a very young age, as in 2006 he competed and won Lilla Melodifestivalen (the past junior version of Melodifestivalen). Subsequently, he went on to perform at the MGP Nordic 2006 competition, held in Stockholm.
One year later, he released a revamped version of the Swedish song Jag är en astronaut, originally performed by his uncle Linus Wahlgren, which became a smash hit. Over his 10-year career, he has unveiled several singles, most of them having ranked in high positions in the Swedish charts. In 2014, Benjamin and his partner Sigrid Bernson took first prize on the ninth Let’s Dance show, the Swedish version of Strictly come dancing.
