As we edge ever closer to the first semi-final of Melodifestivalen 2017, the artists are preparing to face the stage in Göteborg. Today, rehearsals have taken place and now one-minute clips of the competing songs of semi-final one have been released.

In semi-final one, we see four returning artists – Boris Rene attempts to represent the nation once again with a song from Tim Larsson. Dinah Nah attempts a song written by Thomas G:son and Dr Alban, and Charlotte Perrelli takes on a self-written track. Ace Wilder also makes a return after her successful entry ‘Don’t Worry’ last year. For the first time, Ace Wilder’s song will not be written by the Debs, but instead by G:son and Boström.

A total of 2,478 songs were submitted to SVT, up by twenty-eight from last year but is still 1,400 short of the 2011 record when 3,832 songs were submitted. This year a total of 362 songs were submitted through the public contest, this was for singers or songwriters who had not released a song commercially before. This figure is the lowest it has been since the public were given a separate round in 2010.

Clara Henry, Hasse Andersson and David Lindgren will host this year’s edition. The trio were announced during a fifteen-minute broadcast and press conference on SVT Play late last year. Introduced as “SVT’s flagship show”, Melodifestivalen enters its 58th year as the selection process used to select Sweden’s Eurovision Song Contest participant. It remains Sweden’s favourite television show and one of the most watched national selection shows in Europe.
