Sweden’s Melfest 2019 kicked off in Gothenburg this evening! Seven acts competed for the two spots in the final in March and the two spots in the second chance show the week prior to that.
It all kicks off in Gothenburg on Saturday night! One of the most anticipated selections of the Eurovision season: Sweden’s Melodifestivalen, will get under way in just two days’ time and today the Swedish broadcaster SVT gave us a sneak peak of what we can expect from the first semi final.
Melfest is one of the most anticipated Eurovision selections of the season. The presenting line up was announced last month (Eric Saade, Sarah Dawn Finer, Kodjo Akolor and Marika Carlsson) and rumours have been rife as to which acts would compete in this year’s contest. Today’s announcement puts all those rumours to bed. Read on to find out which familiar faces will return to fight it out to follow in the footsteps of the likes of Loreen, Mans Zelmerlow and ABBA to represent Sweden at Eurovision in 2019.
