Multilingual Swedish comedienne Petra Mede will host the Eurovision Song Contest in Malmö, Sveriges Television (SVT) announced on Monday.
TV personality Mede, 42, told assembled reporters she hoped to add a “personal touch” to proceedings, which attracted millions of viewers last year when Sweden’s Loreen won the music competition with her hit song Euphoria.
Mede said she had accepted the job immediately.
“I’ve learned during my 42 years on the planet that saying ‘yes thanks’ is a lot more fun than ‘no thanks’ “, Mede said.
