Anna Bergendahl is concidered the biggest favourite by the bookmakers and Aftonbladet readers (and me, btw) to win Melodifestivalen and go to Oslo 2010 for Sweden. A lot has changed since a nervous and shy 16-year-old took part in the Swedish Idols two years ago. "I have been to India. It changed my whole way of thinking and seeing things. A year ago all this fuss would have been just so stressful, now it only makes me stronger" she says. "It feels great to be a favourite but I still hardly can believe I beat names like Peter Jöback and Pernilla Wahlgren in the semifinal!" She spent her time in India doing a project, living in an orphanage, visiting hospitals and health centers. "I saw it all. It gave me a new perspect for life". Her biggest adversary in Oslo 2010 would be Tom Dice from Belgium who has a similar song and presentation. "I saw his video. I's fantastic, what a voice! I don't see him as a threat even if his performance is a bit similar to mine. It would be an honour to meet him, just like Saturday night to be on same stage with Jöback and Salem, my idols!"
Her This is my life went to #1 in the Swedish Single's chart and also #1 in Digilistan!
