For the first tim3 in 18 years, only one person will host the Eurovision Song Contest and this morning, SVT introduced Petra Mede as the person with this distinct honor. Some may not be familiar with her so who exactly is she?
Petra was born on March 7th, 1970 in Stockholm, Sweden and started her career as a comedian at the Bungy Comedian competition in 2005.
You could see her on many different shows throughout the years including Parlamentet, Hjalp & Guldbaggegalen. She is also no complete stranger to the Eurovision fans as she hosted Melodifestivalen in 2009 which is the Swedish National preselection. That same year she was also voted Sweden’s best female comedian.
What are your feelings towards this decision? Are you happy or were you hoping for somebody else?
