Undo. The grand final was held on 8th March and the quality was very high. I loved the majority of songs - favourites are mine included Ace Wilder, Ellen Benediktson and Helena Paparizou! As always, an international jury of music experts influenced the results. Ace Wilder won the jury vote... however the Swedish public favoured Sanna and therefore Sanna is heading to Copenhagen. Ace and Sanna are both great artists - so I would have been delighted with either of them winning. And I'm really happy that Sanna gets the chance to represent Sweden in Eurovision. She's already participated in Melodifestivalen seven times so it was lovely to see her finally win.
Sweden are hot favourites to win the contest itself next month - and I wouldn't mind if Sweden did win. It's an amazing song. Maybe Ace would have had more international appeal, though? I don't know. Anyway, Sanna will defiantly qualify and a top five position is very likely. Lycka till!
