Contest Producer Karin Gunnarsson from SVT has the responsibility to select all the acts for Melodifestivalen 2022:

– I’m so happy to be able to tell you about this year’s entries. The line-up includes several artists hungry for revenge, past winners who are back and the rock music standing proud. We’ll be greeted by expressions we haven’t heard in Mello for a few years, new constellations, established names who’ll surprise and several unestablished artists that are going to win the hearts of the audience, says Karin Gunnarsson.
