Isa Malou Prytz Ace Wilder Melodifestivalen 2020

Melodifestivalen 2020 is almost upon us! In just two days, the seven acts and their teams will descend upon the city of Linköping to begin rehearsals for the first semi-final of Sweden’s Eurovision selection.

And while it’s often the artists that get much of the attention, the other on-stage contributors play an essential role in bringing a creative vision to life.

On Monday, SVT published a full list of contributors for semi one of Melfest 2020. And in it are many familiar names.

All eyes are immediately drawn to Malou Prytz’s team. For the second year running, she has engaged the services of both ISA (2015 and 2016) and Ace Wilder (2014, 2016 and 2017). The former will provide backing vocals while the latter will be responsible for staging and styling.

Another standout name is Erik Segerstedt. He’s lending his voice to Robin Bengtsson. He previously competed with Danny Saucedo’s boyband EMD in 2009 and Norwegian singer Tone Damli in 2013.

Those who pay attention to songwriting credits may also recognise Melanie Wehbe on vocals for The Mamas. She was one of the writers on Leonora’s “Love Is Forever” — Denmark’s Eurovision 2019 entry. She’s also a songwriter on “Move”.

As in 2019, Sacha Jean Baptiste and her team play a role in staging all of the acts.

The list is also interesting as it gives us some clues about staging. For instance, The Mamas, Robin Bengtsson and Sonja Aldén won’t have any dancers in their performances.

Nice to see dancers and background people getting credit. The whole entertainment industry needs to seriously acknowledge those who work behind the stage..

Although the song was ok rather than good last year, Malou definitely looked the part on stage. Glad that she’s keeping the parts that worked.

have you ever thought about that maybe Malou reads this? You have no shame in your body at all. You always write stuff that pop out from your mouth. Think sometimes. Its not a good thing to always trash other people you dont even know.

lol I’m sure Malou is totally agonizing over comments like these.

if you’re tryin to make me feel bad bout it, nice try but i don’t lmfao. malou literally said her musical inspirations are anne-marie, dua lipa and ed sheeran, she’s asking to not be taken seriously. sounds like a rich girl with the tantrum of having a music career.
