In a new series of the web tv programme Inför Melodifestivalen the first guests will be two of the best known artists who will be performing in Heat 1 of the Swedish national final, Yohio and Helena Paparizou.

This is a live programme and expect lots of fun on this Wednesday before the Melodifestivalen kicks off on Saturday evening.

Helena, who has represented Greece twice, first as part of Antique with Die for you (3rd) and solo with My number one (winning) has said – I do not let the Eurovision Song Contest in 2001 or 2005 affect my participation here at the Melodifestivalen. Here I feel it’s my debut. This is my chance, and I will do the absolute best from me. I would be very, very happy if I was to represent Sweden.

The order of performance has been chosen with Yohio, who came second last year with Heartbreak Hotel, being the first artist on stage in this year’s season of shows. He will be singing To the end. Ms Paparizou rounds off the evening as the eighth singer, with Survivor.

The producer of the pre-show is Elin Bohman has remarked When we work with the largest entertainment programs, it feels good that we can also offer good web exclusive content. That we have with us two of the hottest artists in perhaps the entire race in the very first program feels fantastic. I think it will be a very worth seeing programs.

Viewers in Sweden can watch the programme tonight Wednesday 29 January at 20:45 CET on svt.se/Melodifestivalen and also svtplay.
