Melodifestivalen 2020 has just come to an end after 6 weeks touring around Sweden and after an exciting show live from Stockholm’s Friends Arena, Sweden has now selected the act that they will send to Rotterdam for this year’s Eurovision Song Contest: it will be The Mamas with “Move”.
The entire show, the four previous semifinals and Second Chance round held by SVT, were hosted by Lina Hedlund, Linnea Henriksson and David Sundin. A new version, in Swedish, of last year’s winning song, “Too late for love” was performed by Babben Larsson.
The 12 finalists who competed to represent the country at the Eurovision Song Contest 2020 were:
- Victor Crone – “Troubled Waters”
- Paul Rey – “Talking In My Sleep”
- The Mamas – “Move”
- Mohombi – “Winners”
- Hanna Ferm – “Brave”
- Mendez feat. Alvaro Estrella – “Vamos Amigos”
- Dotter – “Bulletproof”
- Robin Bengtsson – “Take A Chance”
- Mariette – “Shout It Out”
- Felix Sandman – “Boys With Emotions”
- Anna Bergendahl – “Kingdom Come”
- Anis Don Demina – “Vem E Som Oss”
A total of twelve acts performed tonight. Eight of them were chosen from four previous semi-finals, whilst the remaining four semifinalists were chosen from the Andra Chansen (Second Chance show) last Saturday. The votes collected from the televoting as well as those awarded by an international jury panel, formed by 8 countries, decided the winner. These were: Israel, Austria, Armenia, Australia, Malta, France, Iceland and the Netherlands.
What do you think of the Swedish choice? Are they in it to win the contest in May and improve John Lundvik’s 5th place last year?
