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.
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.
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 so, the adventure begins. Bye Bye beautiful Stockholm, and hello New York!!!! Going to study, at the Neighboorhood Playhouse Theatre School for the Summer. And write music aswell. See You on the Acoustic Summer Tour that Starts in Orust on July 27th and ends in Stockholm at Mosebacke on Aug 10th! Tickets @blixtenco .. Then “Cabaret” at @kulturhusetstadsteatern opens on Sept 19th. #sallybowles #cabaret #newyork #acousticsummertour #acting @flysas #music ????????????????????????????????????????

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.
@missneanderthal No, I will not be singing as a participant in Melfest 2016. And I know nothing more than that I am doing Cabaret.
