With a photo from the audition process, Swedish Public Television (SVT) informs us that 14 of the 28 songs of Melodifestivalen 2021 have already been selected.
In the four semifinals of the Melodifestivalen 28 songs compete every year. Of these, 14 come from the open application process, 13 are by direct invitation of SVT to established artists and 1 position belongs to the artist selected by the radio competition, “P4 Nästa 2020”.
SVT revealed to us that the 14 songs from the open invitation have been selected, after the committee auditions have been completed. It took a week for the committee to listen to the 2,747 songs submitted for Melodifestivalen 2021!
It is more than six months left before we have a winner in Melodifestivalen 21, but the work is already underway. For one week, our jury has listened through all the entries submitted. The work is now complete and the first 14 contributions have been selected.
