Expressen previously mentioned last month that one of our favourite Swedish pop stars Måns Zelmerlöw is heading for London's West End ....now he has confirmed it himself. In an interview with Expressen, he revealed that he has landed the role of Billy Flynn (the leading man!) in the musical "Chicago".
No info yet on when he will be taking over the role (although I would imagine it would be some time next year?). He will be following in the footsteps of fellow Melodifestivalen 2009 finalist Nina Söderquist, who appeared on the London stage in the Monty Python musical "Spamalot"in 2008.
Congratulations to Måns, I'm sure he will do very well indeed. Give 'em the old razzle dazzle!!
Time for a "Swedish Invasion" update: Agnes entered the UK top 40 at no. 3 yesterday with "Release Me" - and it's no.1 on the UK iTunes chart, which Aftonbladet and Expressen couldn't resist mentioning on their showbiz pages today. I've never really been an Agnes fan in the past but this song has really grown on me now and I think it'll be around the charts for a long time.
