SVT, the national broadcaster in Sweden, and responsible for the nations' participation at the Eurovision Song Contest organised a press conference earlier today in order to announce the names of the entries, songwriters and artists competing in the first two semi-finals of next years' edition of the Melodifestivalen. The format, albeit unchanged, will include four (4) semi-finals, a second chance round and the final, all of which will be spread out over six (6) weeks. At the end of this period, new careers will commence whilst renowned stars will find solace in hit singles. The only other competition to produce similar results is Sanremo, as competing entries are known to make the official singles chart for several weeks after the showcase.

Sweden are organising their national selection following a triumphant organisation of the Eurovision Song Contest and they might have already set their sights on success pertaining to the first list of artists revealed by Christer Bjorkman during a Press Conference. Two former Eurovision Song Contest representatives have been included in the line-up and they are none other than; Helena Paparizou, winner of the event back in 2005 on behalf of Greece and Martin Stenmarck who was responsible for starting the nations' bout of bad results back in 2005. It is also worth pointing out that there are some former participants who have made the cut. Some surprises are also set to be announced on Thursday as the remaining sixteen (16) entries are revealed in another Press Conference.
