Latest news about Melodifestivalen 2011

The first semi-final in Melodifestivalen kicks off at 5th of February. The hype has already been going on for a while. Swedish TV wants to keep up the interest and focus during the whole year, if possible.

Today's announcement was about the hosts. Marie Serneholt and Rickard Olsson are the duo who will guide you during sex weeks. It's a kind a family affair for Marie as her partner Måns Zelmerlöw was one of the hosts last year. Marie participated in the contest 2009 with a song called "Disconnet me" which didn't qualify for the final. She started her career in the teenager ABBA-cover-band A-TEENS. During 2010 she had one of the main roles in the musical Grease. Rickard Olsson is a well known media person and in 2003 he hosted the second chance round in Melodifestivalen.

The rumour of today is that Eric "Manboy" Saade, the showering boy from last year, will participate also this year. This is not yet confirmed by SVT but I suppose it will be soon.

The final starting field will be presented during press confereces during the two next coming Mondays.

The Junior Eurovision Song Contest takes place this weekend in Minsk, Belarus. Sweden is back in the contest and is represented by Josefine Ridell. In total 14 countries take part:
Armenia, Belarus, Belgium, FYR Macedonia, Georgia, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Moldova, Netherlands, Russia, Serbia, Sweden, Ukraine.
