If the audience decided, Nano won the "Hold on" Melodifestivalen in 2017, but it halted the international jury. Now the former winner of the second prize opens this year's Gothenburg competition.
Old Nano fans will be able to recognize the "Chasing rivers" – a song that is both powerful and fragile, with the potential to get into the brain.
High15 has become known for TV4 "Talang" and strives for an international career as a pop group. They are the youngest participant in the competition, which was born in 2002-2003, and bring a rough, young and hearty pop song about avoiding drama – just that – "No drama" with speaking and girl power.
This week is a broken heart for Wiktoria. In the Melodifestivalen contest twice before, both of them went to the final, but went home without a profit. Her third attempt is called "Not With Me" and it's a ballad about the hardest and most interesting topic of life: love. It will be like "donate my heart, I can not believe you just tear it", this time this victory will do?
What would be Melodifestivalen without a former participant "Idol" who tests the wings in SVT? This week the quota is filled with Zeanou, which ended in 12th place in the TV4 Music Competition in 2016. She has nothing less than Samir and Viktor's saxophone player from last year's Melodifestival Anis Don Demin.
Their "fires" are a bit of a mixture of everything. It's rap, pop and passion. Chorus mostly consists of the words "oh oh oj oj oj".
This year's melodic festival is full of veterans, including Arja Saijonmaa. The last time she was really close to winning was 1987 with the song "High above sea".
Her new song, "My Four Seasons," is the one that is the most different from the others. No one can doubt that it is Saijon's food and it would be possible to be released in 2019 ten years before the Melodifestival debut.
Mohambi is totally green in these contexts. Artist "Bumpy ride" is perhaps better known thanks to his collaboration with Pitbull, but this year he has decided to take part in the competition.
His "Hello" is a kind of modern pop song that has attracted singing in clubs over the past few years – this song also has the potential.
The last one is Anna Bergendahl, who won the 2010 competition, but without moving to the Eurovision finals. Since then, he has been nine years old and is well remembered. "Cinderella Ashes" is a calm "It's My Life" when it's blown away, instead it has picked up the tempo. More pop and another song that feels very typical of "Melodifestivalen sometime in 2010".
