  • Singer Cornelia Jakobs says she's overwhelmed "in a good way" by her Saturday night victory at Melodifestivalen, the music competition that selects Sweden's entry for the Eurovision Song Contest.

  • "It was just euphoria and kind of a blackout," she tells Radio Sweden. "Like my brain was exploding."

  • Jakobs is now preparing for Eurovision 2022 in Turin, Italy, where she'll perform in mid-May along with some 40 other countries.
