A Swedish sign language interpreter is fast becoming an unlikely Eurovision hit after footage of him interpreting pop singer Magnus Carlsson's attempt to enter the contest went viral.

Footage of interpreter Tommy Krangh singing an entry to represent Sweden at Eurovision has gone viral, attracting more than 1.7 million views since being uploaded over the weekend.

Forty-eight-year-old Krangh told Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet that he had never before experienced the energy he felt when he interpreted the entry by pop artist Magnus Carlsson.

“I go into the music and lose myself,” he said.

“I let loose and just drive.”

There are now calls for Mr Krangh to join Sweden’s Eurovision contestant on stage in Vienna, where Australian Guy Sebastian will also compete.

Sebastian has revealed his competing song, title “Tonight Again”, earlier this month.
