The Swedish newspaper Expressen is reporting that SVT wants Petra Mede and Måns Zelmerlöw to host the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest.
According to Expressen it is expected that SVT will have decided on who they want to host the contest in Stockholm by the end of this month. Petra Mede has previously hosted the 2013 contest in Malmo and also co-presented Eurovision’s Greatest Hits with Graham Norton earlier this year, while Mans has never presented the contest.
They added that it is clear now that Sanna Nielsen will not have a presenting role at the 2016 contest due to her recent announcement as the new host of Allsång på Skansen. It is however very possible that Sarah Dawn Finer could have a role in the show, she has previously hosted Melodifestivalen and sang as part of the interval at the 2013 contest.
