Per receives two awards on televised show

STOCKHOLM – Per Gessle received the Guldapa (Golden Monkey) at the Swedish Hit Music Awards tonight. “This is my first Golden Monkey as a matter of fact,” Per commented when receiving the prize. The prize is Radio Rix’s special award for the most played artist during the year. Per once again wore all black, with a Clockwork Orange T-shirt.

  Per also won a Guldälg (Golden Moose) award for best Swedish song with “Här kommer alla känslorna.” “It’s me again,” Per said with a smile when he came back on stage. “I think ‘När vi två blir en’ should have won,” he continued. Miio was also nominated in the category with their cover of Per’s Gyllene Tider song.

  Per performed “Känslorna” on the show, playback.

  The Rasmus, a group selected as the warm-up act for Roxette’s “Room Service” tour in Scandinavia, won the award for best foreign song with “In the Shadows”.
