Terese Fredenwall and Elin Petersson are the first two artists who obtained the ticket to take part in the upcoming edition of the annual Melodifestivalen with the hope of representing their nation during the Eurovision Song Contest which will be staged a couple of miles away in the city of Malmo. Despite the fact that SVT, the Swedish broadcaster is hosting the continental event, it seems that they are putting in a lot of effort into their selection process nevertheless with Christer Bjorkman going on record stating that he would like Carola to return to the Melodifestivalen next year because it would be a triumph for the music industry and a celebration of all sorts for the performer. The decisions will be taken in the next couple of weeks but nevertheless, there are several factors which will surely be considered.

The last time that Carola entered the Melodifestivalen competition was back in 2008 in a duet with Andreas Johnson bearing the name One Love, which they co-wrote together. Several people thought they would ultimately be unstoppable but they could only manage to scrape through to the second chance chance stage where they failed to get through round one. Nevertheless, Carola is a force to be reckoned with in the Swedish music charts with all of her studio album releases making it into the top three and with all of her solo entries in the Melodifestivalen finishing in first place except for one. She represented her country at the Eurovision Song Contest on three occasions, the first time in 1983 with Framling finishing in third place, then winning in 1991 with Fangad Av En Stormvind before returning one final time in 2006 with the track Invincible managing an astonishing fifth place. Once Christer Bjorkman has his hands on the chosen thirty-two (32) entries according to Aftonbladet, he will ask Carola to pick one herself to commemorate her thirty years since winning with Framling and starting her successful career. Stay tuned to for all of the latest news as soon as it becomes available.
