This was the first official appearance of this year’s hosts Petra Mede & Måns Zelmerlöw at the ESC 2016 so far. The press conference was initially made for the press to get to know the hosts better. Petra has been suffering from back problems but has recovered completely. Måns is mainly preparing physically with sports like jogging and Petra mentally. It also came out that Petra is not choosing her dress by herself, the team around will take the decision.
The commentator and script writer Edward af Sillén also emphasized that a dream for him comes true. This is to be involved with his ideas for the entire script of the interval act, all jokes and glittering show elements, such as in Malmö 2013.
Both very sympathetic hosts feel happy and confident to host the biggest TV show in the world.
