The first Melodifestivalen semi-final takes place Saturday evening at the Telenor Arena in Karlskrona. SVT wants all y’all to tune in online, so it released photos of Danny Saucedo shirtless earlier today.

That’s right. The producers at SVT are hoping to whet your appetite by revealing that Danny will be taking off his top during an intermission in the show. Here he is during today’s rehearsal. Apparently he’s gone brunette!



SVT also revealed that Danny and his co-host Gina Dirawi will pay tribute to Loreen by parodying her performance of “Euphoria.” Danny will be wearing his glow-in-the-dark space suit from last year’s contest. 

Elsewhere contestant David Lindgren is going heavy on the smoke and back-up dancers.

Mary N’Diaye, who competed on The Voice of Sweden last year, wins the award for most colorful outfit.
