Web Catch: Watch this sign language interpreter upstage the singer


Viewers in Sweden tuned in to a live broadcast of the Melodifestivalen to see which singer would represent their country in the upcoming Europewide Eurovision competition.

The singer in this video, Magnus Carlsson, did not win. But maybe he can ride the coattails of his sign language interpreter, Tommy Krångh, whose spirited performance led viewers to request that he move on to the international competition.
