The Melodifestivalen 2021 rumour mill spun wildly for months. But, as of 3 December, we now know the 28 acts who will compete to represent Sweden at Eurovision in Rotterdam.
The Swedish music extravaganza begins on 6 February. And while we won’t get the songs until just before each semi-final, there’s still plenty of to get excited about.
Melodifestivalen 2021 line-up
The 2021 cast is looking particularly lustrous. That’s because there are five former Melfest winners in the number. Arvingarna, Eric Saade and Jessica Andersson have all won once while Charlotte Perrelli is a two-time winner. And, of course, we can’t forget the 2020 champs — The Mamas.
And Ashley, Loulou and Dinah won’t be the only 2020 faces looking to make a comeback. Alvaro Estrella, Dotter, Klara Hammarström and Paul Rey will all grace the Mello stage for a second consecutive year.
There are plenty of returnees from earlier years too. Anton Ewald, Danny Saucedo and Elisa have each competed at least once before. Meanwhile, members of Mustasch and Eva Rydberg & Ewa Roos have taken part as individuals. Tess Merkel is also a veteran, albeit as a singer with Alcazar.
And that means that the remaining acts are all debutants. They are Clara Klingenström, Efraim Leo, Emil Assergård, Frida Green, Julia Alfrida, Kadiatou, Lillasyster, Lovad, Nathalie Brydolf, Patrik Jean, Sannex, Tusse and WAHL feat. SAMI.
