The Six-Week run of Melodifestivalen 2020 concluded tonight in a Grand Finale in Stockholm. After a nail-biting vote, it was announced that The Mamas won and will represent Sweden in Rotterdam.

How the show went tonight

Twelve Acts fought for the ticket to represent Sweden in Rotterdam. The 2020 Swedish representative was selected through a mixture of International Jury and Televote, which you can see below:

Sweden at the Eurovision Song Contest

Sweden has participated in the contest 59 times since its debut in 1958. They have missed only three contests since their debut (1964, 1970 and 1976). Since 1959, the Swedish entry has been chosen through Melodifestivalen. In 1997, Sweden was one of the first five countries to adopt televoting, and have continued to innovate the technology behind the contest whenever they host.

Sweden is one of the most successful countries at contest, winning six contests so far. Notably, their wins span their participation history; their victories span five decades with ABBA (1974), Herreys (1984), Carola (1991), Charlotte Nilsson (1999), Loreen (2012) and Måns Zelmerlöw (2015). They currently have the the second-highest number of wins, behind Ireland’s seven.

In 2019, John Lundvik represented Sweden with his song “Too Late For Love” after winning this year’s Melodifestivalen. He won both the jury and public vote in the final. This includes receiving the maximum 12 points from all international juries that voted, something that had never been achieved before until now. Despite a similarly strong jury score at the Grand Final, the televote was once again not enough to secure Sweden its seventh win.

I get that Dotter should have won. But that doesn’t make this song any worse so what is all the hate about?
