Singer for MP’s Eurovision song selected
HELSINKI – Mats “MP” Persson, the guitarist of Gyllene Tider and a music producer, has once again managed to get one of his songs into the Finnish leg of the Eurovision song contest, as reported before. The song is written together with a Finnish songwriter, Patrick Linman, just like the song the year before.
This year’s song, titled “Everything But Still Nothing,” will be performed by 23-year old Christian Forss. Forss became popular as a result of having been on TV’s “Idol” contest, in which he came in fourth.
In the same contest, another male contestant, Antti Tuisku, performed “Spending My Time” which was later released on a CD. Forss rendered Bon Jovi’s “Living On A Prayer.”
