They must have been very surprised at the Swedish broadcaster SVT, when 1830 songs were send in for the Melodifestivalen 2002.
1830 is even 300 more than in 1993, when the most songs ever were send in: 1530. 2002 is an absolute record.
It's already known the big final will be held in the Globen Arena in Stockholm. The four host cities for the semi-finals will be announced this Sunday.
