Farah Abadi and Jesper Rönndahl will host all six Melodifestivalen 2023 shows, as Sweden looks to find a successor to Cornelia Jakobs. “Hold Me Closer” won its Semi Final in Turin, and went on to finish 4th place overall.
Of course we will have to wait for the live shows to hear the songs in their entirety, but do you think one of these artists can improve on Cornelia’s performance at Eurovision 2022? Let us know below or on social media @escbubble!
