Sweden: opera diva shines!

In her rehearsal today, Malena gave some polished performances of her song La Voix which is sung in English and in French. The song has been composed by Malena herself and veteran Fredrik Kempe who was also behind the Swedish entries for the 2006 and 2008 Eurovision Song Contest, sung by Carola and Charlotte Perrelli. Not much was changed in the Swedish performance compared to 4 days ago, but the blond opera star didn't wear her glamourous white dress today, but was clad in casual clothes. The Swedish team used the contrasts between a white- and a dark-lit stage to great effect. Unlike the Swedish Melodifestival where Malena Ernman's backing vocals had been pre-recorded, her 5 backings in Moscow will have to sing live in the first Semi-Final of the 2009 Eurovision Song Contest, but that didn't prove to be a problem for the experienced singers who performed spotlessly. Edward af Sillén, one of the Swedish commentators this year, told eurovision.tv that Malena would fly back to Stockholm today to perform there, but that she would be back in Moscow later this week.
