Hej, Sverige! This week Melodifestivalen 2018 travels to the historical city of Gothenburg and with it comes seven new songs that will hopefully grab your attention (and votes).
The wait is over for Eurovision fans as Polish fan-favourite Margaret makes her Melfest debut.
However, she is not the only big name for Melodifestivalen followers. The “Cool Me Down” popstress will be joined by returning artists Samir & Viktor and Mimi Werner, Goteborg’s own Ida Redig, and experienced acts Jonas Gardell and Stiko Per Larsson. Arguably, the most anticipated name among the newcomers is Idol winner LIAMOO.
Expect glitter and fabulousness! Don’t believe us? Well, SVT have got us covered. At 19:00 CET tonight, you’ll be able to watch snippets from each act’s rehearsals. And until then, you can read our reviews from inside the arena.
For now though, SVT has released a minute of each song for you to judge.
