Why did you want to participate in Melodifestivalen?

Because I got the oppotunity from my label and I felt that as a new and upcoming artist Melodifestivalen is the best way to go because so many people see you and you can really show off who you are and what you're best at.

You actually participated in Melodifestivalen before, but as a choir and as a dancer. This is your first time as a solo artist, how does that feel?

It's, I mean, it feels great. It's a bit nerve-racking sometimes. It was now during the rehearsals but it feels great and I'm super excited.

Can you tell me about your song, Begging?

It's an up tempo pop song with lots of R&B influences and it has a party feel to it and a bit of sexiness which I try to bring out with help of my choreography and my dancers and the dance itself.

So the performance, you choreographed it yourself?

Yeah, I did, I did. So that's even more to judge. But I'm happy with the result of the choreography and I'm excited to show it off.

Are you influenced by anyone special?

I've got tons of influences, that's the hardest question. I've always been inspired by Michael Jackson, there's a little bit of Bob Fosse in there and even hip hop influences, jazz. There are so many that I've tried to compress into one little piece and show it of. But that's the main influences I would say.

What question that I didn't ask you would you like to ask yourself and what would the answer to it be?

That's a hard question! Wow, what would I like to ask myself? What's happening after Melodifestivalen? And the answer is, I'm going to release an album with songs that I've been working on this past year. It's a very R&B influenced album.

When will it be released?

I don't know, if I knew I would say. But it's, I think it's during the summer.

EuroVisionary would like to thank Anton Ewald for his time.
