Deaf News: Swedish sign language interpreter’s translation of Eurovision songs makes him viral sensation

Posted on March 18, 2015



A sign language interpreter from Sweden who performed the country’s Eurovision Song contest entries on TV has become a viral sensation.

Tommy Krångh rehearsed the songs for five weeks before the performance and told the Guardian:

“I am always all in. I want to give the whole experience of the music. I have to give my whole body. When I get on the stage the music is pumping and I lose myself. I don’t know what’s happening. I am totally lost in the moment – but somehow I still know what exactly I am doing.”
