Four songs disqualified from Melodifestivalen’s Webbjoker competition

Swedish broadcaster, SVT, has just announced that four of the 32 participating songs in the Webbjoker selection has been disqualified as they have been available on the internet. Three of them will be replaced by another song, but the one from first the heat, which has already started, won’t be.

First heat of the Webbjoker competition started Monday with the first 8 songs being availble to listen to – and later – vote for. One of the four songs that was disqualified was to be found in this round so to give all of them the same time for people to get to know them that song will not be replaced.
