The saga of Molly Sandén: From Junior Eurovision to movie vocals

12 August 2020 at 12:00 CEST
Molly Sandén represented Sweden at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest back in 2006. In the 14 years since, she has accumulated a long list of achievements including her performance in the 2011 interval act and multiple gigs at the Swedish selection show, Melodifestivalen. Now she can add lead vocals in the international Netflix movie 'Eurovision Song Contest: The Story Of Fire Saga' to that list.

If you think of Sweden at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest, you think of the Sandén sisters. Mimmi was the last Sandén sister to represent the Scandinavian nation with the song Du in Kyiv where she reached 6th place. Frida represented Sweden 2 years before that with the song Nu Eller Aldrig which reached 8th place. However, the best result for the Sandén family was set by Molly with the song Det Finaste Någon Kan Få which placed third, becoming Sweden’s best-ever result at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest.

In 2011, when the Contest was held in Armenia’s capital Yerevan, Molly was asked to perform as an interval act alongside Armenian Junior and Eurovision stars Vladimir Arzumanyan and Sirusho. During the final, she performed her then-new song, Spread A Little Light.

She then took part in the Swedish national selection show and reached the Eurovision Song Contest - on the silver screen!
