After winning Melodifestivalen 2019 by a landslide, is John Lundvik on track to win Eurovision this year? Joshua Mayne analyses if the amount of success in Sweden says anything about success at Eurovision.
John Lundvik has won Melodifestivalen 2019 and will sing “Too Late For Love” for Sweden at the Eurovision Song Contest 2019. He won the Swedish competition by a landslide victory, taking all (!) the available points from the international jury.
This Saturday, Sweden picks their act for the Eurovision Song Contest 2019. It is time for the grand final of Melodifestivalen 2019. Here is our big Melfest 2019 preview.
Anna Bergendahl (Eurovision 2010) has qualified for the Melodifestivalen final. She won one of four gruelling Andra Chansen duels. The other qualifiers were Nano (2nd in MF 2017), Lisa Ajax (Swedish Idol 2004 Winner) & Arvingarna (Sweden ESC 1993).
Newcomer Bishara and John Lundvik were the top two artists tonight in Lidköping. They are the final two to be voted directly to the final in Stockholm’s Friends Arena.
Arvingarna previously represented Sweden in the Eurovision Song Contest 1993. Meanwhile Lisa Ajax competes for the third time for the honor of representing Sweden in Tel Aviv.

Martin Stenmarck represented Sweden in Eurovision 2005 in Kiev. Now he takes the stage again for another shot at the Eurovision title.
Malou Prytz and LIAMOO & Hanna Ferm join Wiktoria and Mohombi in the final at Stockholm’s friends area. Their success resulted in a shocking upset as Margaret was eliminated.
