Petra Mede to host Eurovision 2013
The long-awaited moment has come, it's time to reveal the host of this year's Eurovision Song Contest. The one to get the job is the Swedish comedian Petra Mede!
Petra Mede is a Swedish comedian and television host from a previous life in the performing arts in Paris and Stockholm.
She first stepped into the limelight due to her success at stand-up comedy at the Bungy Comedy competition in March 2005, but also largely from her subsequent roles in some of the most popular comic television shows in Sweden.
In 2009 she was voted Sweden’s best female comedian and became the host of Melodifestivalen. Petra’s unique raw sense of humour led her to start her own Petra Mede Show on TV3 and today she continues to host A-list events, conferences, television shows and gigs all over Sweden.
