FINLAND – Krista Siegfrids is one of the Eurovision stars who is currently getting into the dancing mood. As part of Tanssii Tähtien Kanssa 2021, the Eurovision 2013 winner has traded in her microphone for a pair of dancing shoes.
The Finnish version of the British television series Strictly Come Dancing is Tanssii Tähtien Kanssa (Dances With Stars). Finland’s celebrities learn ballroom and Latin dancing, then perform a different dance style each week to impress the judges and viewers at home.
Krista is paired with Anssi Heikkilä, a professional dancer. The couple danced the waltz on the dancefloor during the show’s second live show on Sunday.
This dance was extra special because Krista danced to Secret Garden’s “Nocturne,” Norway’s winning song from Eurovision 1995.
“Nocturne” is one of the most evocative songs ever performed at Eurovision. As a result, it was the ideal choice for setting the tone for Krista and Anssi’s lovely and elegant waltz.
The judges were blown away by the couple’s performance. Krista and Anssi received a total of 27 out of a possible 30 points. This put the pair in a tie for first place on the leaderboard.
Krista and Anssi were declared safe from the season’s first elimination after the public voted. They’ll be back on the dance floor next week.
