Months before it was announced that the world famous composer RedOne was one of the participants in the Swedish national selection Melodifestivalen. RedOne, real name Nadir Khayat, was born in Morocco and a Swedish resident.

He didn't make it as the Swedish entry but shortly after he was announced as one of the writers of the song that represents Russia in this year's Eurovision Song Contest, Get You. The song proceeded from the first Semi-Final and takes part as song number ten in tonight's Final.

RedOne is a two-time Grammy Award-winner and is most popular for being the responsible of the Lady Gaga sound. Here you can check what he told us in the following video:
