EuroVisionary had a quick chat with Crucified Barbara and Alcazar before they went back to the hotel to prepare for the after-party.
What was your first thought when they announced the result?
We didn’t think that we would stand a chance when it was clear that Erik Linder was the competition! It took several seconds until we understood what actually happened. Then of course we were really happy!
Tell me a little bit about the experience to participate in Melodifestivalen?
It has been loads of fun. We have really enjoyed this. We have all been smiling inside all the time. This is new for us and it’s so much fun and everyone working with this is so professional.
Would you do this once again if someone asked you?
That will have to wait until much later. We already get to do this one more time in Örebro in two weeks. Let’s just take one thing at the time.
How will you celebrate this?
We will go to the after-party of course and Getty Domein have promised us to teach us to dance.
You will have to go through the second chance heat once again, how does that feel?
There is no hard feelings! We are really happy to get to do this once again. We really love Darin and the girls in Timoteij are so great.
It sounds like you think it was worthy winners?
Yes of course! It’s so much fun that Timoteij was through, now there will be girls in the final.
What was you first thought when they announced the result?
You get absolutely blank at first but after that we were all really happy. We now have a chance to show this act once again in Örebro.
How will you celebrate this?
We will go to the after-party and we will celebrate with all those who have helped us with our act and friends and family.
EuroVisionary would like to thank Crucified Barbara and Alcazar for taking their time and talk to us.
