The Melody Festival is an annual music competition organized by Swedish public broadcasters Sveriges Televisin (SVT) and Sveriges Radio (SR). It determines the country's representative for the Eurovision Song Contest, and has been staged almost every year since 1959. Since 2000, the competition has been the most popular television programme in Sweden; it is also broadcast on radio and the Internet.
When I grew up it was sent as one programme but in 2002, SVT introduced a competition with semifinals so the potential number of contestants are now from around twelve to thirty-two. This makes it even more exciting. It all starts on Saturday the 3rd of February and the the final is on the 10th of March. Are you ready for some Mello Fever?
