Helena Paparizou and YOHIO star on Inför Melodifestivalen tonight
The day has almost come for the start of the popular Swedish selection show Melodifestivalen, which begins this Saturday.
Tonight, the first preview show “Inför Melodifestivalen” airs live from Malmö, starring semi-final 1 participants Helena Paparizou and YOHIO.
The two are perhaps the most anticipated names of this year’s Melodifestivalen, besides Sanna Nielsen. YOHIO won the audience vote last year, losing out to Robin Stjernberg because of the international jury. Of course, Helena won Eurovision back in 2005.
The artists of semi-final 1 are currently in Malmö rehearsing for Saturday night’s show. One minute clips of their rehearsals will be available tomorrow.
“Inför Melodifestivalen” airs at 20:45 CET and is a 15 minute online show.
