This Saturday, Sweden will choose their Eurovision 2022 entry on the Melodifestivalen final. The running order for the final was released yesterday. Today the first news of changes in the performances have been announced.
LIAMOO competed in the second heat of the contest with the song “Bluffin” and qualified to the final. He stood on the stage alone in the performance on the heat, but for the final he is joined by four male dancers. Next to the four dancers, he is joined by two off-stage backing vocalists.
Next to LIAMOO, Cedrik “Lionman” Hammar will also be joining Robin Bengtsson in the final as off-stage backing vocalist, which is also a change from the heat. Lionman performed the song “Alla har glömt” in the semi-final of the Melodifestivalen 2022 after the songwriter Peter Himmelstrand was added to the Melodifestivalen Hall of Fame.
