SWEDEN: HERE ARE THE 28 MELODIFESTIVALEN 2018 ENTRIES

 
The most hyped, most overrated national final is here again and the Eurovision fanboys are fainting out of excimtement all over Europe again after today's announcement of the competing acts and their songs. And no, there's no Alcazar but Kikki Danielsson is! The surprise on the list is Polish Margaret and as much as I like her and wish to see her in Eurovision I can't get too excited: Why Melodifestivalen and not Poland? If she represented Poland I'd be one happy fanboy myself, but.... Ah, let me answer my own question: Because she did Poland and didn't win and don't want to be humiliated again, and her music has been made in Sweden anyways, so Mello is just a huge promotion vehicle for her to the Swedish (and maybe therefrom to a wider) market as in Mello no one's a loser. One is a winner but most everyone else scores a hit, too, and no one's considered a loser. And that's the nice thing about Mello tbh.  
Did you notice SVT propably ordered the back sheet from China and they mispleed Melodyfestivalen?

Among artists quite a few new names (18 out of 28!) but among the songwriters the usual suspects Thomas G:son, Fredrik Kempe, Bobby Ljungren, Danne Attlerud, Linnea Deb, Peter Boström.... even Anton Ewald. But despite that 52 out of 90 songwriters are newcomers. Will we hear the change? I hope so!
