SVT, public broadcaster in Sweden, responsible for the participation of the country at the Eurovision Song Conest has just unveiled the running order for next years’ edition of the Melodifestivalen which Christer Bjorkman, the Executive Producer has denoted as dramatic. Prior to the revelation of the official list of artists, songwriters and entries just a couple of weeks ago, there had been several rumours about the line-up.

In the meantime, as the running order of the show has now been officially made pubic, several readers of international fan-sites are seemingly trying to determine the final outcome of the entries considering that it has become somewhat of a custom for the most successful entries to be placed either as the first act or the last act within the semi-final stage. As a matter of fact, even the betting odds shifted ever so slightly earlier this morning.

Melodifestivalen, the selection process in Sweden is one of the most anticipated throughout the season, from several fans all across Europe for the simple reason that there is a certain aura surrounding the whole showcase from the hosts, to the staging and eventually the songs. According to Christer Bjorkman, the line-up includes six potential winners of the selection, with three of them having the potential to win the actual Eurovision Song Contest. At this years’ edition, Sweden were represented by Robin Stjernberg and his entry You. Despite garnering support from the juries, it did not pick up on public support and languished in a mid-table position. Stay tuned to for all of the latest news.
