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.

You're going to the final? I'm so excited (as well as a bit envious ;) ) for you! You'll have to tell us all about it when you get back.

I so hope you're right about Andreas making it to the final--his song is so far my favorite from that semifinal.

Here's an mp3 of "Samba Sambero," if you want it, and just in case you don't have one yet :)

PS thank you for the post on Linda Bengtzing! She rocks my world.

Im really dissapointed Andreas didnt make it... 6th place is pretty dissapointing for sure. I guess the Swedish public don't want "modern" music at Melodifestivalen.
