Sweden has always been favourite at Eurovision Song Contests and this year is no exception. “They do what they love to do – they sing, dance and they perform,” says Christer Björkman, the artist coordinator of Afrodite.
After a fantastic rehearsal Afrodite was asked, which country do they want to win if it will not be Sweden. One of the girls, Kayode Shekoni, said that it has never crossed her mind.
According to Kayode the strongest aspect of their performance is that they love to perform. When asked to compare the differences between the contest songs, Afro-dite say that it is not possible because the songs are very different.
Christer Björkman, the artist coordinator, has participated in Eurovision several times. Many consider him to be a true fan, since he has been involved in singing, journalism and now also with delegations. “To have fun, not to be too serious,” is the main advice Christer gives Afro-dite.
In general the press conference of Afrodite was quite silent.The moderator had to search somebody to ask questions and mostly Swedish press was present. It was a last pressconference of the day.
