Melodifestivalen 2019 – All 28 acts revealed

Anna Bergendahl, Martin Stenmarck and Arvingarna are among the 28 acts who will compete to represent Sweden at the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest. From the 2nd of February to the 9th of March, Sweden will run its big Melodifestivalen selection.

After months of speculations, the 28 acts for Melodifestivalen 2019 has finally been confirmed. As usual, the line-up include some familiar faces, but also talented new comers. The age spread is quite big as well, from the 15 year old Malou Prytz and Bishara to 86 year old Jan Malmsjö.

Who has what it takes to win the national selection and later bring home a good result from Tel Aviv, Israel in May next year? We’ll have to wait to hear the songs, but with the line-up now known, early bets have already started.
