“A boring, uninspired pop song. He’s very handsome and the dance moves are impressive, but the lyrics of this song are just too stupid to be overheard. Sorry Sweden, you will probably qualify and do well, but I don’t like it at all”

Eric Saade (20) is a popular Swedish musician. Last year he competed in Melodifestivalen with his song “Manboy” and came second to Anna Bergendhal. Saade grew up in Kattarp outside Helsingborg to a Lebanese father and Swedish mother. Football had been Saade’s number one interest up until he signed his first music contract at 15, which resulted in one album and three singles. None of them charted. He also came to prominence after his win on the Swedish music contest Joker
