Swedish broadcaster SVT has confirmed to our partner website Gylleneskor.se that the participant list for Melodifestivalen 2005, as announced by Esctoday.com on Sunday morning, is correct.
Edward af Sillén of SVT however reacted in an astonished way on Esctoday.com's research. “How can Dutchmen and Belgians get this information? The name B-Boys International came into my and Christer's mind on Friday evening. On Saturday, the list was in the Benelux, complete with names.”
“This is a major thing,” Edward af Sillén continues. “Of course the list is true. Is someone paying money to receive this information from someone at SVT?” Esctoday.com would like to stress on the fact that no money was involved and that the complete participant list was the result of an intensive and professional research.

At tomorrow's press conference, apart from confirming the 28 performers, SVT will also announce how the 28 artists have been spread over the four semifinals, to be organized in four different Swedish cities. Something Esctoday.com did not reveal yet.
