Alcazar's Fierce Five Reunion at Europride

Dear Poptastic Readers,

Over the weekend, the most fabulous thing happened: Alcazar performed at Europride with 5 members on stage. We announced on Friday that Annikafiore and Magnus were reuniting for a one-time performance.

If you would like to read our 2012 post about the history of Alcazar, click there. And don't forget to read our 2011 interview with Annikafiore, which originally appeared in Scandipop.

The Europride performance mostly consisted of Andreas, Tess, and Lina performing the group's hits. Magnus came out and sang "Singing To Heaven."

Perhaps the most anticipated return was original Alcazar member Annikafiore walking onto the stage surrounded by shirtless hunks as she sang a bit of her chilled lounge (Piol Mix) version of "Crying At The Discoteque" before stopping to announce "This is Alca ... ZAR!" with her big booming vocals as the regular Alcazar version of "Crying At The Discoteque" started. See it here ...

That is when all 5 of them spread across the stage like the super group they were always meant to be. They looked and sounded fierce as the crowd went wild. Have a look ...

An encore of their song "Someday" showed all 5 smiling from ear to ear and hugging each other. Magical moments don't get any better than that.

Alcazar are currently on their "final tour." However, there has been so much Internet buzz about this reunion, it is a shame for it to only have happened once, and for two songs only.

We'd love to see all 5 back to compete and win Melodifestivalen in 2019. Surely they slay the competition and have the public voting for them. Perhaps we are dreaming. However, we never thought we'd see all 5 together. It is good to dream.

Here's to 20 years of Alcazar!
