Melodifestivalen 2007 is coming to an end. On Saturday Sweden selects it's entry for this year's Eurovision Song Contest in Helsinki. 10 songs have qualified from the semi-finals. This years tour around Sweden has been a huge success. Below, you will find our first Swedish video interviews. Highlights include Anna Book announcing that if she wins, she will go to Helsinki with the song in Spanish and Sonja's shock at hearing that she has become one of the international fans' favourites.
Melodifestivalen is bigger then ever before with record breaking viewing figures and televotes. Many thought that it was impossible to beat last years figures but this has been proven wrong. Melodifestivalen is still the most watch television show in Sweden and the biggest national pre-selection in Europe.
