On royal request Roxette performed "The Look" before Crown Princess Victoria and soon-to-be-prince Daniel and most of Scandinavia's and Europe's royalty tonight. The occasion was the Swedish parliament's concert-gift to the couple. This reporter does not lie when he says that most of the audience looked quite thrilled when Roxette, which came on last, rocked the house, literally! People were standing, clapping their hands and singing along.
Marie ended the song going into The Beatles' "Hey Jude" as she started to do during Night of the Proms.

STOCKHOLM (Updated) - At the party for Crown Princess Victoria and her fiancé Daniel Per Gessle surprised them both with a song especially written for them. Aftonbladet describes it as a romantic ballad. And for the party tomorrow, where Roxette will perform several songs according to Expressen, there will be another new song.
Update: SVT ended its broadcast after the traditional wedding waltz. After that the party ensued where Roxette performed as planned. Swedish singer Carola performed her song "Evighet" shortly after 1 AM, but the party didn't take off until Roxette entered the stage. According to Aftonbladet the Crown Princess really rocked her butt off to Roxette. The band performed several of its greatest hits, among them "It Must Have Been Love". "That has got to be the ultimate song" commented Anders Borg, Swedish Secretary of Treasure.
Per Gessle left the party at 6 AM.
