Hello! I'm Ifi from Greece (living in Sweden since September 2010). I became a huge Eurovision fan in 2002 when I accidentally watched it on tv. I also love Melodifestivalen! I'm following the live shows since 2008 and since I moved to Sweden I've attended every final. I try to follow as many national finals as possible every year. And I'm also the biggest Alcazar fan! See you around! :)
