Eurovision week has started for real and I guess there is a fair amount of nerves at the SVT headquarters by now. All these preparations for such a long time and now it is time to show the critical audience what they came up with.
Will people love the stage design? The camera work? The post cards? The interval act? You never know how things like these will land with a large, diverse audience.
However, I am pretty sure you will all enjoy the presence of Petra Mede. She is glamourous, she is composed, she is funny and she is fluent in French.
Armed with a good script - one that is funny when the show allows it rather than trying to be funny the entire time - this could indeed go down very well.
Just like at Petra's big break - hosting Melodifestivalen back in 2009. Also then, Petra co-operated with Edward af Sillén. This looks very promising indeed.
