Yesterday the Swedish broadcaster SVT disqualified one of the 32 songs for the national final Melodifestivalen 2003. You got me, written by Anders Borgius (picture), already appeared on the internet before.

The song, which was said to be performed by Sanna Nielsen, was available on the internet already, which is forbidden in the Swedish final. Although the European Broadcasting Union stated in the rules for the Eurovision Song Contest that songs for the contest are allowed to be published from October 1, the rules for Melodifestivalen say that songs may not be published before the actual broadcasting.

The song is replaced by No dudes en Llamarme, with music by Johan Larsson and lyrics from Fernando Brito.
