Sweden: Samir & Viktor return to Melodifestivalen 2024 after six years of absense!

Aftonbladet and Torbjörn Ek did it again and just a while ago revealed new potential Melodifestivalen 2024 acts! Last year, Aftonbladet revealed 24 out of the 28 acts of Melodifestivalen 2023, even before SVT announced the line-up officially.

The Swedish duo Samir och Viktor make their return after six years of absence from the contest! The duo adds up to the potential lineup that will compete in the hopes of getting selected to represent Sweden next year, at the Eurovision Song Contest to be held in Malmö, Sweden. They are more or less known to the fanbase, having competed more than once at Melodifestivalen in the past.

Who are Samir & Viktor?

Samir & Viktor have competed three times before in Melodifestivalen, in 2015 with “Groupie“, in 2016 with “Bada nakna” and in 2018 with “Shuffla“. The first two times they made it to the final via Second Chance, the third time they went directly to the final where they finished fourth, the duo’s best final position.

But the recession affected both of them with serious income losses, and this summer they chose to reunite and released the song “Skål” together, while they also appeared on this years last show of Allsång på Skansen with Victor Leksell.

Samir Badran, 33, fully invested in his new profession as a broker while Viktor Frisk, 28, continued as a lifestyle influencer while trying to launch a solo career in music. Now they are making their comeback to the contest, after six years!

According to sources, it seems that some record companies and music publishers have received word of mouth about songs and artists, but that SVT has not yet sent out that many official confirmations. As it is still quite early, things can change until the confirmation emails go out to the artists.

We remind you that Melodifestivalen 2023 is scheduled to take place between February 3rd to March 9th, while SVT has received 2624 songs. The final list of Melodifestivalen participants will be published later this year, between end of November and beginning of December.
