The history of P4 Nästa
Swedish Radio network P4 has been running the contest since 2012. The aim of it is to discover new artists and music suitable for P4’s format. Results coming from P4 Nästa winners haven’t been the best, as none of them have yet made it to Andra Chansen or the final.
The latest winner, Amanda Aasa, finished 6th in her semi final with her song “Late”.
