We’re here. All these weeks have led up to the grand final of Melodifestivalen 2021!
As you know, this edition will be little different from what we’re used to from Mello. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, there will be no audience present at any of the live shows and the touring, every show in a different city in Sweden, won’t happen this year either: all shows will be held at the Annexet venue in Stockholm.
While the battle arenas won’t be changing this year, the hosts will certainly do so! One man will be with us every single week, while his co-hosts will be new faces every time.
Christer Björkman has represented Sweden at Eurovision 1992 with ‘Imorgon är en annan dag’ and turned ‘’the new Melodifestivalen’’ (with several heats and touring the cities) into a huge success is saying farewell after 20 years and he will be our anchor every week, hosting his beloved contest for the first time.
For the final night he will be flanked by Shima Niavarani, a multi-talented actress and singer who, to show you her versatility: had her breakthrough at just 19 years old with her own show ‘Autodidakt i enmansakt’ (English: Autodidact in one man’s act) which she wrote the script for, she directed it, did the staging, lighting, clothing and music and then starre dit in herself!
The final host is someone who needs no introduction in Eurovision circles: 2015 winner (with ‘Heroes’) Måns Zelmerlöw himself!
