The Eurovision Song Contest 2018 looked like it was going to be just another good year for Sweden. And of course, their 7th place is a good result once again. But they only had the jury vote to thank this year.
Backing vocalists are more and more often hidden on the Eurovision stage. Sweden’s Benjamin Ingrosso too decided to have his five backings not shown on screen. Still he acnowledges: “They are an important part of my team”.
Melodifestivalen 2018 has not delivered the goods, in the way Sweden has done so in previous years. The only way for Sweden to get their preselection back on track, is if they would get a bad result at the Eurovision Song Contest in the upcoming years.
