Interviews

Translated Interview with HBL

Sweden’s Cornelia Jakobs is one of the pre-favorites ahead of this year’s Eurovision Song Contest, a competition that will be inevitably colored by the war in Ukraine. – The war does not end because I ignore my job, says Jakobs.

In this year’s Eurovision Song Contest, Ukraine is, unsurprisingly, the pre-favorite for the victory. But the betting agencies also have low odds for last year’s winner Italy which is second, and Sweden’s contribution which has the third lowest odds right now. Melodifestivalen winner Cornelia Jakobs recently visited Finland on a publicity tour that also includes London, Amsterdam and Madrid ahead of Eurovision Song Contest in Turin, Italy in May.

This is her first time in Finland, she has only been to Åland before, but she hopes to perform at festivals this summer.

– My dear friend and drummer Joakim Lövmark is from Vaasa. He is my connection to Finland. We met when we were studying rock music at a folk high school nine years ago, says Cornelia Jakobs sitting on a sofa at the record company Warner Music‘s office in Kampen, Helsinki.

She has not listened to the competitors yet, but knows that it’s The Rasmus who represents Finland.

– I know that The Rasmus has a rock’n’roll song and that he is half naked.

She believes that the war can affect the competition quite a lot this year and make people vote more emotionally than before. But also says that culture means extra in difficult times.

– It is a very special time right now and as an artist it is difficult to balance the bowls. In one hand, you are overwhelmed by what is happening and feel helpless. In the other hand, I’m experiencing my most important time as an artist right now, and the war does not end because I don’t enjoy it and ignore my job.
