by Oliver Rau 44 views

Two weeks ago, some Swedish newspapers named four artists as the wildcard acts in this year's Melodifestivalen: Lena Philipsson, E-Type, Niklas Andersson and the trio Siw Malmkvist, Towa Carson & Ann-Louise Hanson. What was marked as rumours back then now appears to be true: today, SVT confirmed all four names.

As SVT announced today, the four wildcard artists and their songs are:

In MF 1 (Karlstad): Tro på mig by Niklas Andersson
Lyrics and music: Lasse Berghagen

In MF 2 (Göteborg): Paradise by E-type
Lyrics and music: E-type

In MF 3 (Umeå): C'est la vie by Hanson, Carson & Malmkvist
The song for what one can call the new Swedish Schlager Vixens was written by Thomas G:son, composer of many a Nordic Eurovision song.

Lena Philipsson is the wildcard artist of MF 4 (Malmö). Her song is yet to be announced.
