Live: Melodifestivalen 2016 – Final: Stockholm

We’ve had six weeks of Melodifestivalen fun which has been rounded off by three days worth of hard-work by our wonderful team on the ground in Stockholm, Sophie and Alec. Tonight is where it finishes. From 28 entries, to 27 competing songs… we’re down to the last 12. Who will take the Sångfågel trophy home?
Gina Dirawi returns to finish the job she has so ably performed every week as our hostess and is joined by popular YouTuber William Spetz for this final leg.
