Anton Ewald: I started dancing just to get girls
At the age of 14, singer and dancer Anton Ewald, was already juggling a professional dancing career with homework and school.
Almost four million people watched Ewald as he danced behind singer Velvet in the 2009 edition of Melodifestivalen, the Swedish contest to pick an entry for the Eurovision Song Contest.
Only three years later he was back in the Melodifestivalen limelight, but this time as a singer with the song "Begging". This year, he will once again perform in Melodifestivalen on February 22nd.
Anton Ewald joins us in the studio to talk about why he changed career paths and left full-time dancing for singing, why he refused to perform one of his hit songs on TV, and how he started to dance and play the guitar just to impress girls.
