Carola, who is widely tipped to win Melodifestivalen 2006 tonight, will not sing her song at today's dress rehearsal. The announcement was made moments ago at the press centre.
Although Carola will appear on stage, she will not sing Evighet live on stage. It is likely one of her backing vocalists will do the job.
In exact reason has not been given, but it is not unlikely that Carola is saving energy for tonight's performance. It would not be the first time an artist doesn't show up at a rehearsal because of health problems and gives a perfect performance at the live show…
