It’s time so make my salute to the people that lead us through our programming: Marie Serneholt and Rickard Olsson. They have both done a fantastic job at this year’s Melodifestivalen, and will continue to do so for the Andra Chansen round and the Grand Final. I did however need to take a moment to salute one of them in particular, for whom I’ve developed quite a fancy.
Rickard Olsson is a newly aquired journalist for SVT, and I welcome him with open arms. In fact, he even went so far as to show his arms in the first semifinal in Luleå. All I can say is that I like what I see. He’s funny, he’s got a great voice, he’s from Gävle (yay like mumzy!). He really cleans up too, wearing the cute suits and he can actually sing too.
In the semifinal in Linköping, Rickard got nice and personal with Fredrik Kempe, sharing secrets and being a little flirty throughout, but it all got better in Malmö where he pointed right to me. I’m quite smitted. He’s a nicely aged man, very amusing, very cute, and has the most adorable ears. I recently even had the honour of getting a tweet from him (shown below).
If it isn’t already clear I’m RIckard’s biggest fan in Canada, without a doubt. He heard that I said it, and in his disbelief managed to at least tweet back. I had a famous person tweet me, I will now swoon. If there are any eurofans out there, namely people that I know people, thou must share my love with Ricke in the same way that you shared my love with a certain Danish person…!
