The curtain is almost ready to fall on the 2021 national final season. But before everything wraps up for another year, fans have two shows to choose from.

You can follow all the results on wiwibloggs (and via our Twitter: @wiwibloggs and Instagram: wiwibloggs) throughout the evening. Here’s a quick rundown of what’s happening, when it’s on and how to watch.
Saturday 13 March: Eurovision 2021 Selection Shows
Sweden’s Melodifestivalen 2021
Time: 20:00 CET to 22:00 CET
Sweden’s Mello ends its six week run with tonight’s grand final. As per usual, there are 12 finalists battling to impress both televoters at home and eight international jury finals. The favourites include Tusse and Eric Saade, while Clara Klingenström is being labelled as a dark horse. Last year’s top two, The Mamas and Dotter, shouldn’t be dismissed either. For the first time, SVT will also be providing a stream with English commentary.

Iceland’s Söngvakeppnin was put on hold for 2021, as the country reselected Daði og Gagnamagnið following the cancellation of Eurovision 2020. Their entry for 2021 is called “10 Years” and will be debuted on the Icelandic show Straumar (Streams).
