We hate to be the bearer of bad news, but every now and again it has to done. Ace Wilder, the surprise breakout star of Melodifestivalen 2014, who lost by the closest margin ever (2 points), has rejected the idea of returning to the Swedish national final next year. Yes, this Floridian-Swede is moving on…
The news came on Tuesday at Allsång in Skansen, where fans were able to ask Ace questions via social media. Someone asked about a potential comeback at Melodifestivalen and this is how Ace responded:
No, I don’t plan on a return. I’ll probably write more songs for Melodifestivalen, so I’ll be back in that sense.
Even though she hinted at a return when we interviewed her after Melodifestivalen, we aren’t too upset that she’s had a change of heart. After all, the girl’s been on a roll since going from nobody to multi-week top charter last March. She released a collaboration with Margaret Berger, planned a Swedish summer concert tour, and even started her own vlog on YouTube!
