Swedish singer Benjamin Ingrosso has released an acoustic version of his Eurovision song “Dance You Off”, which he recorded on a trip to London. He recently released an extended version of his song also, which is available to listen to on Spotify, Apple Music and YouTube.
Benjamin Ingrosso represented Sweden at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest in Lisbon, Portugal last week. At the Grand Final, he placed 7th with 274 points. Sweden recorded their worst result in a televote for a decade finishing 23rd with the public and scoring just 21 points.
Benjamin was born into a musical family, as his mother is famous singer Pernilla Wahlgren, and his father Emilio Ingrosso is a former dancer. At just 8 years old, Benjamin won the children’s competition show Lilla Melodifestivalen with the song “Hej Sofia”. He then went on to represent Sweden at MGP Nordic 2006, where he finished fourth.
Throughout his childhood, he acted in several musicals and later went on to release award-winning singles. Benjamin is no stranger to Eurovision selection shows, as he took part in Melodifestivalen a year prior to his win. In 2017, he placed fifth in the final with his song “Good Lovin’”.
