In 2006, they competed once again in Melodifestivalen with the song Temple Of Love, this time qualifying for the final where they finished second. BWO entered Melodifestivalen for a third time in 2008 with a Lay Your Love on Me where the song finished in third place They group entered Melodifestivalen once again in 2009 with You're Not Alone. The song did not qualify directly for final and was also unsuccessful in the second chance round Andra Chansen.
