Swedish tabloid Aftonbladet is reporting that two-time Melodifestivalen host Gina Dirawi has won the contract to present Melodifestivalen 2016 next spring.
Melodifestivalen with a difference?
Next year marks 15 years since SVT introduced the four semi-final, Andra Chansen and grand final format.
Their plan to celebrate? Feature guest hosts with a strong connection to Melodifestivalen for every stage of the competition.
Gina will act as host throughout all stages to provide viewers with continuity and a connection that they can “feel”.
So we can print our Gina Dirawi posters and flags out, right?
Woah there! There is a “?” in the title for a reason. Although Gina is highly topical, nothing is confirmed yet and it is no secret that hosting the Eurovision Song Contest in May is still on her bucket list.
No contracts are signed but informants have also revealed to Aftonbladet one name already in the sphere for guest host: Miss Sarah. Dawn. FINER.
We would love to see the dynamic duo back at it after their stellar run at Melodifestivalen 2012.
Are you excited for Melfest 2016? Do you think Gina has it in the bag? Comment below!
