With Melodifestivalen 2015 four months away, Swedish newspaper Expressen has its ear to the ground—and it claims to have heard some major juice about this year’s contest. The paper claims that two-time #melfest entrant Sean Banan has submitted a song and is hungry for the chance to sing at Eurovision.
The paper says that Mr Banana has already recorded the track. It’s not year clear whether Melodifestivalen producer Christer Björkman will include the track in his selection of 13 songs for the semi-finals. The professional jury has reportedly already chosen its 14 songs, and, of course, the 28th song will be performed by Svensktoppen nasta winner Kalle Johansson.
As you’ll recall, Sean reached the Second Chance round in 2012 with his song “Sean den förste Banan”. It was about an immigrant making the most of Sweden—”Here’s the bling bling, shampoo and fermented herring, the castle is my apartment”—and saw Sean repeating “Diggidiggidiggidingdingding” on loop. The following year he made it all the way to the final with the pina-colada-themed “Copacabana”. But Sweden didn’t go for silly, and Sean came sixth.
