SVT, the national broadcaster in Sweden, and responsible for the nations' participation at the Eurovision Song Contest organised a press conference yesterday afternoon in order to announce the names of the entries, songwriters and artists competing in the final two semi-finals of next years' edition of the Melodifestivalen. The format, albeit unchanged, will include four (4) semi-finals, a second chance round and the final, all of which will be spread out over six (6) weeks. At the end of this period, new careers will commence whilst renowned stars will find solace in hit singles. The only other competition to produce similar results is Sanremo, as competing entries are known to make the official singles chart for several weeks after the showcase.

Sweden are organising their national selection following a triumphant organisation of the Eurovision Song Contest and they might have already set their sights on success pertaining to the second list of artists revealed by Christer Bjorkman during a Press Conference. Whilst there are no names who have been to the Eurovision Song Contest in this list, there are a couple of fan favourites who have made the final cut including; Alcazar who managed to reach stardom status all over the continent with their song Crying at the Discotheque as well as Not a Sinner Nor a Saint which could have been a Swedish entry due to being in a former edition of Melodifestivalen. Other outstanding names are those of Shirley Clamp and Linda Bengtzing who are clearly set to be a treat to the fans in whatever genre they might represent.
