Melodifestivalen 2016 may be almost a year away, but as the leading light of national selection season, speculation is rife about which artists will compete to represent Sweden on home turf next year in Stockholm. And Sarah Dawn Finer just dropped a big hint she’ll be participating in the competition.

Sort of.

It is no secret wiwibloggs loves Sarah Dawn Finer. SDF has serious vocals, her #balladgame is on fleek and she’s also cray hilarious as Lynda Woodruff.

Is she moving on to Melfest 2016?
Is she moving on to Melfest 2016?

So we got super excited when we spotted this Insta on Sarah’s profile announcing she’d started rehearsals for the musical Cabaret:

The key point of the post y’all? The fact the show opens in September and Sarah states she’ll be there for six months, has set our Melodifestivalen senses tingling. That would free her perfectly for February – Melodifestivalen has traditionally started in the first week of that month. And another Instagram throwback has us thinking Sarah might be back singing rather than hosting. Homegirl hit up New York earlier this summer and as well as taking classes at the Neighboorhood Playhouse Theatre School she also took time out writing.

And be honest, like billions of amazing songs have been written in New York.  We love Sarah, her songs and would love to see her at Melodifestivalen. Think the signs are in the social media or have an opinion about SDF singing for Sweden? Comment below peeps! 

Update at 13:20 on 4 August 2015: Sarah has tweeted that she is not singing in Melodifestivalen 2016. We’re sad to hear that. However, this tweet doesn’t rule out other potential roles at Melfest and Eurovision. Given the prep and rehearsal time for Melfest, it seems more likely she would play a role at Eurovision.

As a huge SDF fan I personally feel okey with her not taking part of MF next year as I also feel Sweden should wait some more years before reaching its 7th win as Christopher Björkmann now hungers to get … for no reason that could make any sence. Ireland having 7 wins does not make much of a big deal for the country … it only sadly brought ESC into a popularity slumber only rescued by televoting, a transgender winning, a complete downfall of music quality and rise up of cheesiness and bad taste with the huge approval of… Read more »

“That might mean no Lynda Woodruff though”

I’m OK with this. Her humour doesn’t really translate that well IMHO.

I really dont think it means anything, her contract with Cabaret is probably only for a 6 month run. If there was some tiny hint of Melfest…there would be something else I’m sure. Sarah Dawn Finer has an amazing vocal though, I only heard her for the first time when she sang at Malmo 2013. If she does enter Melfest, I’m sure she would win…and if she did enter Eurovision…well I fear my country’s record of most wins, will be a thing of the past.

I highly doubt she will participate, as she has said before that she won’t be stepping on the Melodifestivalen stage for a while.
But you can still dream, can’t you? 😛

@ Well MANY of us do f***king care 4 the record..!
Your comment is really rude..
Comments like that : who cares or whatever really get on my nerves..

Sarah Dawn Finer is really popular singer & has many fans of hers with plenty of them being even outside her native home country Sweden..
Especially her alter ego comedian clown Lynda Woodruff..<3
So just shut up please..
