SVT has officially disqualified Melodifestivalen first heat participant Anna Book. Rehearsals have just begun and after a quick clip of Book’s performance was released it was quickly linked to Felicia Dunaf’s Taking Care Of A Broken Heart. Taking Care Of A Broken Heart was previously performed for Moldova’s pre Eurovision selection in 2014.
The similarities were striking and “Himmel för två” had to be disqualified. In a press conference earlier today Christer Björkman announced how unfortunate the situation was. As consolation, Book is allowed to perform the song in Gothenburg but she will not be allowed to compete.
