According to Swedish media, Eric Saade will take a shot at next year’s Melodifestivalen.

The popular manboy that took the Melodifestivalen scene by surprise in 2010 and went to win the first place in 2011 might be back in the game next year. Aftombladet has published an article where several sources revealed that Eric Saade would be presented as one of the 28 acts competing for the gold in 2015.

He is clear, says one of Aftombladet’s sources that confirmed the 24 years old singer has been looking for the perfect song in order to put an impeccable show. Eric has already come third in Eurovision and he would be back, only if he feel that he can beat it, says another source.

As every year, Sveriges Television and Christer Björkman will keep the names of the, now 28, semi-finalists under the most strict secret until the acts will be revealed to the media during the two press conferences scheduled.

As reported yesterday, SVT will hold two press conferences next Monday and Tuesday where the names of the 28 acts competing in next year’s Melodifestivalen will be revealed.
