On Saturday's program it was time for the rapper "Big" to be highlighted – as the fifth artist in the scheme this year's season.
For Christer Sjögren it became an emotional day. He chose to interpret "Daddy's song" – which he thought fit him more than well.
– The song is in the middle of the dot. He has written a song that suits textually on the relationship with my father incredibly much. It's so incredibly strong, says Christer Sjögren to Expressen.
Christer Sjögren talks about how close he and his dad stood each other – and in the program he cries when he talks about him.
– You get feelings for such songs. I am close to both laughter and crying. I'm glad I have access to my entire emotional register. There is a section that turns off, but what is the meaning then?
Now it is eight years since Christer Sjögren's father died, 85 years old. Christer Sjögren is glad he had a lot of time with his father – his mother left already at the age of 54.
Christer Sjögren: "He I mourn clearly?"
Now he tells about the reason for his strong feelings.
When he got Stors text, all the memories came back, he said.
– It's nice memories. But, did I really mourn my dad? I do not know. Then you can feel when time comes to an end. It was so positive that I was reminded of my father's time.
"Life is going so fast and you almost can not afford it," he says.
Throughout life, the relationship between Christer Sjögren and his father was light. When Christer got older, they had a friendship relationship.
– He was a very nice man, my dad. He was cool and friendly, helped everyone and wanted to do it all.
In the program he has a photo of himself and his dad who he sends to the participants before his performance. Something that was his own idea, says the program's executive producer Martin Nygren.
"It was a fun initiative, that was fine. But it was definitely his own idea.
"Can not write as good songs as he"
His interpretation of "Dad's song" was warmly welcomed by the other participants. Great then told the Express that he asked Christer Sjögren to make the song several times during the evening – something one did not see in the program.
"There was a big grand piano in the living room where we had our after parties. I asked Christer to play it, and then he played it live for me on the piano while we rounded the evening and drank beer. It felt quite powerful. I just "can not drive it again". It ended with asking him to run it all the time because I thought it was so damn cruel, says Stor.
Christer Sjögren says that was the best grade he could have.
– Now I can not write as good songs as he, but it was as though I would have written the text like it's about my own father. This is when you arrive as an artist when you are concerned yourself.
