2 videos for the first show are available on SVT’s website. In the videos they are showing Per, talking about these 2 of his songs and showing the artists who will be interpreting his hits. Click here to watch the short video with ”Här kommer alla känslorna” and here to watch the other with ”Tycker om när du tar på mej”.
Host is Niklas Strömstedt (yes, he’s the host of ”Tack för musiken”, too, where we will see Ms Fredriksson in December), who will be assisted by a stand-up comedian, Karin Adelsköld. A stand-up comedian? Well, watching some videos on YouTube from this Christer Sjögren and seeing he’ll try to perform Per’s most beloved song…, it might turn out to be a comedy. Let’s see what happens.
Update, 13th September:
2 videos for the 2nd show are available on SVT’s website. In the videos they are showing Gyllene Tider, as well as Marie, including a short a capella of “Sparvöga”. Looking at the artists who will perform the 2 songs tomorrow, it’s gonna be interesting. Hopefully, better than last week’s 2 PG song interpretations. Click here to watch the short video with “När vi två blir en” and here to watch the other with “Sparvöga”.
Update, 20th September:
1 short video for the 3rd show is available on SVT’s website. In the video they are showing Gyllene Tider & Per Gessle, as well as Jasmine Kara, who will perform GT’s “Ljudet av ett annat hjärta” tomorrow night. Click here to watch the video. Let’s see whether Jasmine makes a completely different version of the song or just a standard cover.
Update, 26th October:
