🇸🇪 Petra Mede and Malin Åkerman to host

Petra Mede and Malin Åkerman will host the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest. That is what Swedish broadcaster SVT announced today. 

For Petra Mede, it’s already the third time she will host the contest. In 2013, in Malmö (!), she did the job alone. Three years later in Stockholm, she hosted the show with Måns Zelmerlöw. She commented on having the job for a third time:

‘Imagine getting the chance to host Eurovision once again! It’s such an incredible honor. After first hosting it alone and then together with the delightful Måns Zelmerlöw by my side, I am now really looking forward to working with Malin. We don’t know each other from before, but we have met a couple of times now, and I’m already completely sold. It’s going to be a joy to work with her!’

Malin Åkerman hails from Stockholm but was brought up in Canada. Currently, she resides in Los Angeles alongside her family. Her impressive career spans across both television and film, featuring notable roles in TV series like “The Comeback” and “Entourage,” as well as memorable appearances in movies such as “The Heartbreak Kid” and “Watchmen.” Malin has shared the screen with renowned stars like Tom Cruise, Jennifer Aniston, Sandra Bullock, and The Rock.

Additionally, she has showcased her singing talents on the Swedish theatre stage in productions like “A Piece of My Heart.”
