Alice Gernandt or better known as Ace Wilder will not compete in Sweden’s national final Melodifestivalen 2015. On SVT.se the viewers were allowed to ask some questions to Ace before the TV show “Allsång på Skansen” (sing-along at Skansen). One of the questions were if Ace will come back to Melodifestivalen next year to represent Sweden in the Eurovision Song Contest in Austria next year. Ace replied that she is not returning next year – at least as a singer “I will probably write some for Melodifestivalen, so in that way I will most likely come back”.
Some of the other questions:
What is your best Melodifestivalen memory?
“I missed it myself, but the year Loreen won. Whole Sweden got united”
Which artists do you like?
“I love Beyoncé, Drake, Icona Pop… It feels like I’m listening to everything and everyone. I’ve started to listen a lot to swedish songs like “Din Soldat” (Your solider) Albin feat. Kristin Amparo.”
What is the best memory from your music carrer?
“It’s probably the semifinal where I was announced as a finalist in Melodifestivalen. Direct response for hard work is the best.”
How much do you like being famous on a scale from 1-10?
“To be famous for something you’re proud over is the best feeling. I have never felt any negativity against it. But I wouldn’t like to be famous for something I didn’t believe in”.
Other Melodifestivalen/Eurovision related artists performing at “Allsång på Skansen” this year are: Malena Ernman, Sanna Nielsen, Elisa’s, Björn Skifs, Darin, Ola Salo, Alcazar and Panetoz. The program airs every tuesday 20.00 CET on SVT 1.
