Brainstorm on developments…. By tweeting on its official Twitter account, Melodifestivalen announced that it would run smoothly in 2021. This means that the choice of Swedish participation for 2021 will once again be based on this format. Thus, The Mamas will not be able to represent their country at the Rotterdam competition. Nevertheless, it is not excluded that they will participate in Melodifestivalen 2021 claiming their sects!
As evident in the statement, Christer Björkman says that this means that The Mamas will unfortunately not stand on the stage of Eurovision, which is heartbreaking. The ESC rules prohibit a song released at this stage to take part next year. #Melfest 2021 will hopefully happen.

As Christer Björkman, Head of the Swedish Delegation, said in his statements:
“It is a very unfortunate situation for all artists. I feel really bad for all the artists and especially for the Mamas, who will not be given the opportunity to sing on the Eurovision stage. It is also very unfortunate that a 64-year-old tradition will break”
So the winner of Melodifestivalen 2021 is expected to represent Sweden at next year’s Eurovision contest!
Below you can remember the song “Move” with which The Mamas were to compete in Rotterdam in May!
