Eurovision 2022: Sweden’s First Rehearsal!

Today is the fourth day of rehearsals in Turin and now it’s the turn of the countries that are competing in the second half of the Second Semi Final to take over the stage!

Next up on stage for their first rehearsal is Sweden and Cornelia Jakobs with the song “Hold Me Closer“.

Who is Cornelia Jakobs?

Cornelia is a singer, songwriter, and this year’s winner of Melodifestivalen. Jakobs began her recording career as part of the RedOne-produced girl band Love Generation, who released their self-titled debut in the summer of 2010. Sadly, the group lasted just three singles in the fickle world of pop.

Undeterred, Cornelia launched a solo career in 2018, and has been busy releasing singles, performing to sell out crowds across the country, and working on her first album.

With a father who is a famous rockstar in Sweden, and a grandmother who is a composer, music has always been a fundamental part of this pop star’s life.

The Rehearsal

Cornelia’s staging has remained the same as it was in Melodifestivalen. The same circular projection screen prop is used, plus she wears the same outfit and is barefoot on stage.

Below you can watch a small clip from Sweden’s first rehearsal from Tik Tok:

Her moves and the camerawork are intuitive, making it one hell of an intimate and intense performance.


The second Swedish rehearsal will be held on the 6th of May, when we will know how things will appear on screen for the Swedish entry.
