The Public Reacts to Sweden: Cornelia Jakobs – Hold Me Closer

19 people of different ages, professions and background took part in this year’s “The Public Reacts to Eurovision 2022” by ESCBubble. They are all casual viewers of the Eurovision Song Contest – none of them are big fans of the Contest, and none of them have heard any of the songs before we played them all to them (except maybe the one representing their own country).

We continue this year’s series with their review and their reactions to the song that is going to represent Sweden – “Hold Me Closer” by Cornelia Jakobs. In addition to telling us their thoughts and impressions, we also asked them all to score the song out of 10. The comments of every single one of them may have not been added to the video, but their scores have been added of course. Check out what they had to say about the Swedish entry, and how did they score it right here:
