The wait is over — Melodifestivalen 2018 is finally underway. The first semi final of Melfest takes place this Saturday in Karlstad. Of course, Sweden’s SVT are in full teasing mode ahead of the show, and today released 30-second rehearsal snippets along with one-minute studio samples. As they tease we can’t help but think Melodifestivalen 2018 is going to be very exciting!
Taking part in this week’s heat have we have Melfest veterans Kikki Danielsson and Benjamin Ingrosso, alongside newcomers such as Norwegian popstar Kamferdrops, former Idol contestant Renaida and professional dancer turned singer Sigrid Bernson.
Celebrity chef Edward Blom and singer-songwriter John Lundvik complete the line-up
