Krista Siegfrids and her Team Ding Dong were in last Saturday’s Eurovision in Concert in Amsterdam and surely wasn’t left as wall flowers. She rocked the stage and got the audience wild, and shocked some, but pleased most with a Saphic kiss in the end of her performance with Reetta Korhonen.
“It was all planned and yes, it was a statement for equal marriage right!” she says. “Everyone should have the right to marry whether it is two men or two women. If I can help with it great!” In Finland Tahdon2013 campaign has gathered already 148.000 signs this past few weeks and Krista is among the public supporters. “Audience went really wild in Amsterdam and in social medias I have only got positive comments about it. Some have been wondering how I dare as there are also conservative countries in Eurovision who won’t understand it, but one needs to do something to make things happen. We plan to shook up Europe a little, and this was only a start!”.
Besides this Krista met in Amsterdam her childhood idol Carola and had even chance to interview her. Later they spent the night together over a dinner and Carola invited Krista to Sweden and promised to give her advice and help. Next she’s off to London’s Eurovision party and to do some promotion in Tallinn, too.
