#ESC 2014: SWEDEN STARTS MELODIFESTIVALEN 2014

Sweden's national selection for Eurovision, Melodifestivalen, kicks off this Saturday from Malmö, last year's Eurovision venue. Last year's national runner up YOHIO will open the show in seek of a  revenge while Eurovision 2005 winner, Greek-Swede Helena Paparizou will end it in hope to get another go, it'd be her third after 3rd and 1st place in Eurovision - just like Carola! Carola ended 5th with her third go, and surely Helena wouldn't do any worse.... Both are the biggest favorites to make it to the final as well, but let's see how it goes. The Swedes often give us some surprises in the voting!
This is the night of short song titles, and one more Casanova is trying to make it, too... Oh, and the glass box of Azerbaijan's Farid is still left in the arena and Alvaro is using it, it seems! And there's going to be a lot of confetti in various colors. Nose rings! Dancers! Pyros! Burning hands! High heals! Ja, det är Mello! You can listen snippets here.
Yohio - To the end
Mahan Moin - Aleo
Linus Svenning - Bröder
Elisa Lindström - Casanova
Alvaro Estrella - Bedroom
Ellen Benediktson - Songbird
Sylvester Schlegel - Bygdens son
Helena Paparizou - Survivor
