The Swedes certainly didn’t get bored in the lockdown as SVT reported to have received a total of 2747 songs for the forthcoming Melodifestivalen 2021. This is the highest number of songs received since 2018. The lucky artists that will get to compete in the contest will be revealed at the end of November this year, while songs will only be revealed one week prior to each semifinal.
For now, we only know that Julia Alfrida will be one of the participants as she has won the P4 Nasta Wildcard. Sadly participants and songs coming from this wildcard barely even made it to the Andra Chansen round but maybe Alfrida can surprise us all next year?
Wiktoria, Klara Hammarström, and Lisa Ajax were spotted in studios at the end of this summer. Will they be also part of the line-up? I guess we just have to wait and see.
