For Robin Bengtsson it’s the second time to appear at the Melodifestivalen. Last year he came fifth with “Constellation Prize”. But this year Robin could win the whole thing with a song, co-written by the former Swedish representative Robin Stjernberg and “You”, who made a 14th place in Malmö 2013. Now Robin Bengtsson is going to represent Sweden in Kiev at the Eurovision Song Contest.
Robin Bengtsson was born in a small town called Svenljunga in Western Sweden in 1990. Robin studied the guitar and the trumpet. Now he lives in Stockholm. With his participation in 2016 and the song “Constellation Prize” he received double platinum and went #2 in the Swedish charts. His first album “Under My Skin” was a success, in the meantime he released nine singles. He has toured with his band, written music, released a couple of singles and gained a lot of experiences. Robin is mainly interested in music, travelling, family, cars and motorcycles.
The Swedish entry “I Can’t Go On” is another strong song, with good chances of winning. The lyrics had to be changed, as the original version was about “fucking beautiful”, which is now changed to “freaking beautiful”. The most striking fact of this entry is the unusual choreography. And this won’t be changed for Kiev, that’s for sure. At the beginning the singers will be at the rear room and then entering the stage. There is the usage of treadmills. The dancers, all dressed in suits do really make a great show. If this show is transferred to the Kiev stage, it will guarantee a top placing. The mature and soulful voice of Robin is a big surplus. The overall impression is close to perfect. Maybe it is too designing?

About me: Due to the fact that my parents are musicians, I have a gained a great enthusiasm for music. Since 1979 my interest in the Eurovision Song Contest has grown enormously. My first ESC I joined was in Dublin 1995. Six years later I founded the website eurovisionlive.com in the year 2001. The most fascinating part for me is the original idea of the Eurovision Song Contest – the peaceful contest of the European countries. I am very happy that I have the chance to contribute my little part for the greatest music show in the world.
