Sweden’s Eurovision selection show Melodifestivalen is probably the most anticipated event of the Eurovision selection season. Earlier this month it was announced that the format would remain true to past years with 28 acts competing over four semi finals, a second chance show and a final over six consecutive weeks. This year the shows would start on 4th February, culminating in the grand final held on 11th March.
It was also announced that the shows would be presented by former Melfest competitor David Lindgren and Hasse Andersson alongside presenter Clara Henry. Since then there have been many rumours about which acts would be participating in the 2017 contest, and today these rumours have been put to bed with Swedish broadcaster SVT revealing the 28 acts.
