Earlier today we found out our second prequalified dream team artist and now we’re already on to the third! Next up is our host nation Sweden, so who would you want to see flying the flag on home turf?
That’s right, after repetition finally worked out for Sanna Nielsen and Måns Zelmerlöw, you decided it’s finally time for Alcazar to take to the stage. This would of course require the group to perform at Melodifestivalen for a sixth(!) time, so here’s hoping they’d come back with their strongest song yet. Andreas Lundstedt has been to Eurovision for Switzerland in 2006 but can he finally bring his group to the world’s biggest stage?
Alcazar won quite comfortably, but 29 other names were suggested by our readers. Joint second was shared by seven artists; Danny Saucedo, Petra Marklund, Molly Sánden, Amanda Jenssen, Robyn, After Dark and Tove Lo – a mix of Melodifestivalen veterans and internationally known Swedes. The rest of the suggestions can be seen below.
The full suggestions for Sweden (draws in random order);
Alcazar, Danny Saucedo, Petra Marklund, Molly Sánden, Amanda Jenssen, Robyn, After Dark, Tove Lo, Galantis, Dinah Nah, Sean Banan, Velvet, Elize Ryd & Rickard Söderberg, Jon Henrik Fjällgren, Dolly Style, Zara Larsson, Erika Selin, BWO, Linus Svenning, Jochen Piribauer, Miss Li, iamamiwhoami, Anna Schröder, Vulcano, Alvaro Estrella, Lights & Motion, Gravitonas, Mariette, Laleh, Veronica Maggio
