Qualification rounds

Melodifestivalen is Sweden’s national preliminary round of the European Song Contest and determines the country’s representative. 28 artists compete at Melodifestivalen, organized by the public service broadcaster Sveriges Television. In each semi-final, the first two musicians with the most audience votes directly qualify for the final. The third and fourth places appear a second time in Andra Chansen's broadcast. There, the candidates compete against each other in duels. Again, the artists that receive the most audience votes, qualify for the final. In Melodifestivalen’s final in turn, twelve performers appear.

The winner of the show

The winner of Melodifestivalen in 2019 was John Lundvik with the song ‘Too Late for Love’. At the Eurovision Song Contest at the end of May that year, he reached fifth place.
Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, in March 2020, the organizer announced that the Eurovision Song Contest will not take place that year.
