SVT revealed the host of the upcoming Melodifestivalen which plans to go back on tour!
Oscar Zia will be the host of Melodifestivalen 2022 starting in Malmö on Saturday 5th February. Melodifestivalen will continue to Gothenburg, Linköping, Lidköping, Örnsköldsvik and finally to Stockholm.
Melodifestivalen’s project manager Anette Brattström is very pleased with the choice of host and is looking forward to planning for a tour.
Melodifestivalen is Sweden’s party and we long to get out into the country and meet the audience again. We are hopeful, charged and believe in a tour but at the same time are compliant and humble in the face of a pandemic still going on.
Oscar Zia about the hosting gig:
It obviously feels like an honorable assignment – suddenly I’m in the line after Kristian Luuk, Petra Mede and Gina Dirawi. I have watched Melodifestivalen since I was little, the whole family would watch and no one was allowed to talk, I did not want to miss a second! I am very excited to go on tour and I will do my best to lead the viewers through this party.
