I am in Stockholm as we speak, at the Friends Arena because it’s the Melodifestivalen Final for 2013. The winning song tonight will go through to represent Sweden in the Eurovision Song Contest in May.
The show is Sweden’s biggest TV event, and always mixes established Swedish artists with newcomers. Generally the standard of entries is always pretty high (although this year has been a bit of a turbulent ride in my opinion).
I try and keep my Eurovision posts to a minimum on here because I know it’s not everyone’s flavour, but if you want to follow me on Twitter then I will be trying to tweet through the night. Or not. Depends how much Absolut I go through.
Follow me on Twitter right here, and wherever you are in the world, you can watch the show live and for free over on SVT’s website. The show starts at 20:00 Sweden Time. I promise you, you will never watch anything quite like it…
