Sweden hasn’t done very well at Eurovision in recent years, which is ironic because they have one of the best national final formats. Regardless of how they fare in Oslo, Melodifestivalen is guaranteed to be a spectacle in its own right.
Melodifestivalen 2010 begins this Saturday 6th February with Deltävling 1 at the Fjällräven Center, Örnsköldsvik. These are the artists and the songs they will be performing:
Ola Svensson – Unstoppable
Jenny Silver – A Place To Stay
Linda Pritchard – You’re Making Me Hot-Hot-Hot
Pain of Salvation – Road Salt
Anders Ekborg – The Saviour
Jessica Andersson – I Did It For Love
Frispråkarn – Singel
Salem Al Fakir – Keep On Walking
Clips of the songs will be made available later in the week on the SVT website but for now you can see a Youtube playlist of the artists performing previous hits here (opens in new window).
