This week Radio International's Interview Team JP, Sadie Trent and John Dawton are being joined via SKYPE once again by Andreas Lundstedt and Lina Hedlund who both were part of the group Alcazar. One of Alcazar's biggest successes was the world hit from 2002 "Crying at the Discoteque". But also the last entry of Alcazar at Sweden's Melodifestivalen was back in 2014 when Lina, Andreas and Tess as Alcazar made it successfully to the Grand Final with "Blame it on the Disco". As a surprise to the artists Tess Merkel "gatecrashed" the interview session to the surprise of Lina and Andreas.
