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.
The televote sequence was not so exciting, because Lundvik was far ahead from beginning to end. Not even Eurovision winners like Loreen or Mans Zelmerlow scored such numbers. The televote also went to the gospel-inspired song by John Lundvik. Here he scored 85 points, only 11 short of a total wipe-out.
We have a new #Melfest all time high in the voting: 15.757.707 votes! (In 2018 the number was 13.993.975.) An incredible 4.273.096 kronor were given to the Radiohjälpen charity!
