We have the first confirmed name for Melodifestivalen 2015 and it’s a three boys band Smajling Swedes. They participated in Svensktoppen Nästa, a radio show for young talents. They didn’t win it, but jury decided to give them a chance and a ticket to Melodifestivalen 2016! Their song “Goosebumps” helped them to do it. Congratulations and good luck in February.
A few words about the winner of the contest. It’s Michael Fannon with a song in Swedish “Kommer tid, kommer råd”. Don’t worry as he also got a very good prize – his song will be rotated on P4 Radio.
This is the fourth time when a WC for Melodifestivalen is choosen from Svensktoppen Nästa. In 2012-2014 the winners got their tickets to Melodifestivalen, but none of them qualified to either Second Chance or Final. Probably, it was the reason to change the rule.
Listen to both of the songs and decide which of them you prefer. And don’t forget to give us your feedback in comments.
