Swedish singalong show Lotta på Liseberg is one of the highlights of the Swedish summer concert season. Two shows into this series, we’ve already seen fab performances from Melodifestivalen and Eurovision stars. Let’s take a look at the best.
Despite the rain falling on Liseberg, Marriette brought some sunshine with her Melfest hit “Don’t Stop Believing”. She then strapped on a guitar for her Stockholm Pride theme song “My Revolution”.
Jon Henrik Fjällgren
Jon Henrik Fjällgren proved that his song “Jag är fri” was still powerful and moving, even without the Melfest theatrics. His emotional performance even left some audience members teary-eyed.
Nanne is something of a Melodifestivalen legend and she also represented Sweden at Eurovision in 1996 as part of One More Time. And her father-in-law is Benny Andersson, Eurovision royalty. At Liseberg, Nanne teamed up with Brolle and the Boppers for a rock ‘n’ roll medley and this spirited ode to Elvis.
Roger Pontare is one of the few artists to have represented Sweden twice at Eurovision, first in 1994 with Marie Bergman singing “Stjärnorna”, and solo in 2000 with “When Spirits Are Calling My Name“. He treated the Liseberg audience to the pretty song “Stjärnorna”, this time duetting with the show’s host Lotta Enberg.
Jessica Andersson is another Melodifestival legend (she’s competed six times) and also represented Sweden at Eurovision 2003 as part of the duo Fame. At Liseberg she put a pink streak in her hair and reprised her 2015 Melodifestivalen song, the big ballad “Can’t Hurt Me Now”.
Tommy Nilsson represented Sweden at Eurovision in 1989 with “En dag”. He attempted a Melfest comeback in 2007 with “Jag tror på människan”, but despite qualifying for the final, he ended up scoring the rare noll poäng. Tommy performed two medleys at Liseberg, a hit medley and this summer medley.
