Tonight (April 16), it was time for Cornelia to walk on the purple carpet at PrePartyES 2022. I put together a masterpost with tweets and instagram content from the night. The post will be updated as I find more content. The live performance will be posted as a separate post.

Last night, Cornelia Jakobs’ acoustic performance of her song “Hold Me Closer” from her YouTube channel appeared on the first episode of Eurovision House Party 2022. Her performance starts at 31:23.
Earlier this week, Cornelia got confirmed as one of the acts at Furuvik (May 21), HudikKalaset (July 30), Latitud 57 (July 9), and Adriatic pre-party in Zagreb on April 23, that will be hosted by the Croatian Eurovision Club set to air live as an online event at 21:00 CEST, on HEK’s YouTube channel due the pandemic.

Cornelia announced on her Instagram that she has tested positive for COVID-19 which means she has to cancel her appearance on Eurovision In Concert in Amsterdam today. But she’s still going to Madrid next week if she tests negative before her trip. I hope she’s feeling better soon! <3
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.
Eurovision-Spain.com has just announced that Cornelia will attend PrePartyES 2022 that will be held next Saturday 16 April in the Madrid venue La Riviera. Tickets on sale at Pre-Party.es!
