Tonight’s the night. After over two months of excitement, drama and controversy, the national final season once again draws to a close tonight for another year. However, the season ends on a bang tonight, as two Nordic powerhouses select their entries for Lisbon. The search in Norway and Sweden concludes!
Here’s all of the information #YOU need for tonight.
NORWAY – Melodi Grand Prix 2018 (19:55 CET)

No less than three former Eurovision artists will attempt to make a return in Norway tonight, with Stella Mwangi, Aleksandar Walmann and the Eurovision 2009 champion Alexander Rybak all entering this year’s Melodi Grand Prix. International juries will aid Norway in their quest to achieve another solid position in Lisbon.
SWEDEN – Melodifestivalen 2018 (20:00 CET)
The most popular selection of the national final season, year on year, is Melodifestivalen, so of course the final is a major event in the Eurovision calendar. Sweden will no doubt be setting Twitter, social media and our forums alight as the twelve potential acts perform one last time.
The twelve hopefuls for the Melodifestivalen title this year are;
- Méndez – Everyday
- Renaida – All The Feels
- Martin Almgren – A Bitter Lullaby
- John Lundvik – My Turn
- Jessica Andersson – Party Voice
- LIAMOO – Last Breath
- Samir & Viktor – Shuffla
- Mariette – For You
- Felix Sandman – Every Single Day
- Margaret – In My Cabana
- Benjamin Ingrosso – Dance You Off
- Rolandz – Fuldans
As usual, a combination of the Swedish televote and the international juries decide the winner of Melodifestivalen, with the Swedes continuing to value the verdict of the Eurovision community. The song that achieves the most points will defend the Swedish flag’s honour in Lisbon as they hope to achieve another top 5.
