born on 27/11/1984 in Edenryd, Skåne, Sweden
Sanna Viktoria Nielsen (born 27 November 1984) is a Swedish singer. She comes from Bromölla in Skåne, Southern Sweden.
At the age of eleven she reached the number one spot on the Svensktoppen Charts with the song "Till en fågel". At that time, she sung with the dansband Mats Elmes. She participated in Melodifestivalen 2001 performing "I går, i dag", which finished 3rd. Nielsen returned to Melodifestivalen again in 2003 with "Hela världen för mig" which finished 5th, and again in 2005 with "Du och jag mot världen", a duet with Fredrik Kempe, which finished 8th.
On 3 March 2007, she participated in Melodifestivalen again with "Vågar du, vågar jag". During the Second Chance round, the song qualified for the final in Stockholm Globen Arena on 10 March 2007, where the song ended up in 7th place after the final of Melodifestivalen 2007. Nielsen participated in Melodifestivalen 2008, performing "Empty Room", written and composed by Bobby Ljunggren and Aleena Gibson. She reached the final from the Västerås semifinal on 16 February 2008. Although the song won the public televote in the final inside the Stockholm Globe Arena on 15 March, beating Charlotte Perrelli's second-placed song "Hero" by more than 50,000 votes, it was denied the chance to represent Sweden at the Eurovision Song Contest after losing out to Perrelli in the overall points-based scoring system once a jury vote had been factored into the results, thus finishing only second in the final official standings.
During 2008, "Empty Room" won the OGAE Second Chance Contest 2008 with a 91 points lead to runner-up Coral from Spain. In April 2008, Sanna released her fifth album, Stronger.
She participated in the 2011 edition of Melodifestivalen, singing the song "I'm in Love". She came 1st at the second semi-final which took place at Göteborg 12 February 2011. One month later, she finished 4th at the finale.
In 2014 Sanna will once again participate in Melodifestivalen, this time with the song "Undo". On 8 February she will compete in the second heat.
