Eric Saade, Eurovision 2011 bronze medalist, has been reported as one of the contestants of Melodifestivalen 2015.

Saade leads a number of acts that Aftonbladet, a Swedish tabloid, claims will appear in the Swedish national selection for Eurovision 2015 in Vienna.

Linus Svenning, who reached the grand final with “Bröder” this year, Hasse Andersson, Isi Tengblad, Richard Söderberg & Elize Ryd (leader singer of power metal band Amaranthe), Jon Henrik Fällgren, Midnight Boy and Andreas Weise are all reported as part of the lineup.

If Saade returns it will be three years since he last appeared at Melodifestivalen when he entered ‘Popular’ and won the contest.

He hasn’t entirely left the Eurovision world behind since Dusseldorf though: in 2013 he sparked controversy when he called Petra Mede a “MILF” live during the voting sequence.

Forgive Me, his fourth LP, dropped in 2013 and he’s been writing music ever since. Let’s all cross our fingers a Melfest entry was written at some point…!

He’s not the only former winner of Melodifestivalen in the picture either. Two-time winner and one-time flop Charlotte Perrelli has been a rumoured act in this year’s lineup.

Måns Zelmerlöw, Sean Banan, and Lili & Susie have also been mentioned as potential acts for the contest.

The full lineup for Melodifestivalen will be released on 24th-25th November next week!

Would you like to see Eric Saade back and who do you wish to see on #melfest stage next year? Tell us in the comments!

This guy had more than 10 000 followers on Instagram. But, he lost the most of then sharing pictures drunk, smoking and writing bad words. I used to be like him, but I do not think so nowday. I think he want lights on him again. But, he will not be the Melfest winnner next year. I bet !

He’s really evolved his style since his Eurovision win, so I think it would be interesting to see. Midnight Boy and Mans will also be good! Just please not Sean Banan!!

My biggest concern is … after Loreen, Robin and Sanna …has anyone bothered to tell this kind he is supposed to be a singer, therefore, supposed to know how to sing? If not … who wants to see him coming back? Twink-porn lovers? Lord …

Nooooooooooo. He didn’t deserve 3rd place – he was too cheesy. If he is in melfest , please don’t pick him

Of course, I would like him back, but not winning again. Sweden has so much more artists to offer.
