EurovisionFun is currently in Stockholm, a day before the scheduled press conference when SVT will reveal the Melodifestivalen 2024 artists, their songs and the heat allocation, while Torbjörn Ek and Stina Dahlgren, reporters at Aftonbladet work hard at the newsroom of Aftonbladet and add up a few more names in the line-up of Melodifestivalen 2024, for one last time!
We remind you that last year, Aftonbladet revealed 24 out of the 28 acts of Melodifestivalen 2023, even before SVT announced the line-up officially. Let’s dive in to what they have revealed for us, in their just-published article:
Who is Lia Larsson?
Lia Larsson, 22, is the Tiktok star from Mora who has had EPA dunk success during the year and had her music streamed almost 30 million times, with songs such as “Banka banka” and “Fara ner på byn“. According to what Aftonbladet has learned, she also takes the opportunity to celebrate her Melodifestivalen participation by releasing a new single on the same day as the press conference is held.
Who is Klaudy?
Also ready for Melodifestivalen is William Schenberg, 24, from Tolered in Gothenburg. Under the artist name Klaudy, he participated earlier this year in SVT’s music initiative “Songland” and wrote a song together with the artist Cherrie.
Who is Annika Wickihalder?
Annika Wickihalder, 22, from Örnsköldsvik has also been given a place in next year’s Melodifestivalen. In 2021, she made it to the semi-finals of TV4‘s talent show “Idol“. As Aftonbladet previously revealed, Jacqline Moss, 23, who knocked out Annika in “Idol” will also compete in Mello. Now they both get another chance to compete for viewers’ votes.
Who is Melina Borglowe?
Melina Borglowe, 26, is the singer-songwriter from Växjö who has been signed by the small record company Ten, which has previously achieved success in Melodifestivalen with artists such as Benjamin Ingrosso, Felix Sandman and Bishara. Now, according to Aftonbladet‘s sources, it’s Melina‘s turn to take place in Sweden‘s biggest TV program.
Who is Natalie Carrion?
Finally, Aftonbladet can reveal that Natalie Carrion, 27, from Umeå, will also compete. Natalie, with Caribbean and Sami roots, has several times before been close to joining Mello and competed in 2022 in the sámi Melodifestivalen Sámi Grand Prix. Earlier this year, she was a Swedish commentator when SVT broadcast this year’s edition of the same competition.
