According to Swedish newspaper Expressen and our partner website Gylleneskor.se, the group Wallstones is negotiating with the ex-Beatles member Ringo Starr to be with them on stage at Melodifestivalen 2005. Their song Invisible people is said to be influenced by the pop and rock music from the 60's and would sound like an old Beatles song.
“This is a great song and I'm very confident that we will be victorious in Melodifestivalen 2005,” told Wallstones band member Johan Becker and added that the discussions with Ringo Starr are serious. If the negotiations will end up positive, this will be a pretty good alternative for the earlier rumors about the possible participation of Kylie Minogue in Melodifestivalen that in the end turned out to be just a rumor.
In an interview with esctoday.com yesterday, Christer Björkman couldn�t deny the possibility of more international stars amongst the not yet released wild-cards entrants. Iit already seems that Melodifestivalen 2005 will see the participation of more international stars than ever before. Katrina Leskanich is probably one of the most well known of them, as a former Eurovision Song Contest winner. The list of participants also contains some Swedish stars that have already earned a repetition abroad, such as Papa Dee, Jessica Folcker, Arja Sajonmaa and the bands Bodies Without Organs and Avalon.
