Om oss...

Vi är en samling människor som har valt att lysa upp tillvaron för andra genom att plocka fram konstiga mojänger som blinkar ur svarta lådor och hänga upp dessa på märkliga ställen för er förnöjelse. I denna anspråkslösa blogg ska vi försöka förmedla hur våra dagar och nätter kan te sig under Melodifestivalen 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 samt under Eurovision Song Contest 2013 och 2016. Nu utökar vi denna blogg att även omfatta 2019 års upplaga av Melodifestivalen! Kort sagt, hur har vi det när cirkusen kommer till stan? Vi ska försöka att hålla bloggen aktuell, men ber om överseende om vi inte hinner uppdatera den varje dag, vi kommer att ha en del annat att göra också. Hoppas ni finner detta underhållande och vi önskar er trevlig läsning! Varma hälsningar, Ljuscrewet Melodifestivalen 2018.

So, it´s been a couple of days since we "came together".
I´ve landed safely in the world that keep revolving outside the ESC bubble. 

With some distance to the project that have been occupying my life for the last six months, i am truly grateful for this experience. I am also humble to, and very proud of all the fantastic feedback that pours in like a shockwave of positive energy from all over the world and from places i could not even imagine. 
It feels truly fantastic. 
I feel blessed to have been a part of this with a amazing creative team. 
It have by no means been a picnic, bloody hard work and lot of blood, sweat and tears in the process, but now it all seems worth it. However, this is a team effort, and as you know there is a lot of people involved in a project like this that makes it all possible. 
I can not mention all of you here, but rest assured, you all know who you are and i will never forget the time, energy and effort you put into this project.
