The Melodifestivalen is the annual music competition organized by Swedish Television and Swedish Radio. The winner of the Melodifestivalen goes on to represent Sweden at the Eurovision.
Apparently the Melodifestivalen is the most watched program in all of Sweden and anyone who is old enough to know how to say "goo-goo-ga-ga" is supposedly counted as s viewer of the show, i.e. 4.2 million people!
I'm sure you must know who the most popular winners of Melotifestivalen must be! Click here if you don't!
Anyway, here are some of the entries for this year's Semi-finals:
- Anna Book: "Samba sambero"
- Tommy Nilsson: "Jag tror på människan"
- The Ark: "The Worrying Kind"
- Marie Lindberg: "Trying To Recall"
I have to say, the Swedish Melodifestivalen is a bit confusing, so I think I better go figure out how it works first!!
