The song submission for Melodifestivalen 2016 closed today. A total of 2450 songs have been submitted to the Swedish broadcaster, SVT.

An expert panel appointed by SVT will choose the 27 songs to compete in Melodifestivalen 2016, and the ticket to Eurovision Song Contest 2016 in Stockholm.

The songs, artists, songwriters and line-up for Melodifestivalen 2016 will be announced in the autumn, when the expert panel at SVT has finished the selection process.

One performer is already known



One of the 28 acts for Melodifestivalen 2016 is already known. The trio "Smajling Swedes" won the bonus prize at the radio competition "Svensktoppen nästa 2015". The trio can't compete with the same song they won with, because all songs must be newly written for Melodifestivalen.
