Our Dominik is in Stockholm and has been reporting about the rehearsals on ESCXTRA’s Instagram and Twitter.

Overall, the performances in the final will look fairly similar to what they were before in the semifinals and the andra chansen.

Today’s rehearsals didn’t require the final outfit, so we saw some of the artists wearing bit more casual clothes. Tomorrow the rehearsals will have an audience and the artists will wear the clothes they will wear on the Saturday evening.

What else will happen?

The Melodifestivalen final will include much more than just the performances from the twelve finalists. Earlier this week we reported about the EBU spokesperson Lynda Woodruff making a comeback. We will also see two Eurovision winners, Dana International and Charlotte Perrelli performing together.

Sweden’s Eurovision 2018 representative and last year’s Melodifestivalen winner Benjamin Ingrosso will open the final together with the runner-up FELIX SANDMAN. The duo will perform a new version of their single ”Tror du att han bryr sig”. Benjamin will also sing a cover of Lionel Richie’s ”All Night Long”.

The winner of Melodifestivalen 2019 will represent Sweden in the Eurovision Song Contest 2019 in Tel Aviv. The winner will be selected by the Swedish public together with eight international juries.

I started watching Eurovision back in 2006, when I was only 10 and couldn't stay up to see Lordi winning. I attended my first contest in 2013 in Malmö. I'm studying journalism and I love music — you will probably never see me without my headphones on.
