Sweden 2024: Zara Larsson would like to participate as interval act for Eurovision

Zara Larsson is one of the biggest representatives of Swedish pop worldwide.  She may be only 25 but she has a vast career that includes an upcoming acting debut in Netflix film A part of You.

But apart her coming projects that include a tour and album, she also has time to enjoy Melodifestivalen and the Eurovision Song Contest which she declares herself a big fan.

Talking about the Eurovision Song Contest 2024 which will take place in Sweden, Larsson is considering participating as one of the interval acts.  Although she does not outright reject the idea of representing Sweden one day, it seems we will not see her giving a try at least in the near future.

I’m a huge fan of Eurovision and Melfest, which is just Swedish culture. It really is. Everybody’s watching it, because it’s so fun. It’s just the show of the year. It’s so fun watching, and I would love to be part of the interval act next year. I don’t know if I would be up to compete in the competition. But I watch it every year with my whole family and my friends. It’s a huge event and I’m so happy for Loreen. I feel very proud to be a Swede. We take that s**t so seriously. It would be quite weird if we didn’t win, or at least get some of the top placements, because we love it.

Talking about this year’s winner, Zara Larsson does not only show respect for Loreen and her work but when she also said she would like to work with Loreen in the future:

She’s a very special artist and she’s always had such a clear vision of what she wants to do, and how she wants to do it. I love the fact that she’s not your typical Eurovision act, or Melfest act. She’s very artistic and a little left… experimental.
