Melodifestivalen fever has begun! On Saturday Feb. 3rd Europes biggest Eurovision Pre-Selection contest begins.
Every saturday 8 songs will compete for a spot in the Swedish National Final that will take place on March 10th. Personally I am extremely excited as on Feb. 28th I'll be flying from Canada to Sweden to see the final LIVE @ the Globen on March 10th in Stockholm!
The first 8 songs have now been released and I am pleased to say I think we may have already heard the winner!
Anna Book's song 'Samba Sambero' is everything a Schlager and Pop fan could ask for including a dramatic key change. The Schlagerboys have already announced Samba Sambero as song of the year! Read their reviews here.
I don't have an mp3 yet but for now you can enjoy the song here.
My prediction is that Anna Book and Andreas Lundstedt will qualify for the final and that Sofia & Tommy Nilsson will move to the 2nd chance round.
