The Lovers of Valdaro are the first confirmed act for Melodifestivalen 2019. The group was chosen out of the participating acts in the talent show P4 Nästa.
Swedish broadcaster SVT had announced that they would be selecting an act among the finalists to get an immediate ticket to the Melodifestivalen 2019 line-up. They also did this in previous years. The Lovers of Valdaro, a duo consisting of Adam Warhester and Erik Gabriel, didn’t win the P4 Nästa competition. The band Spring City with the song ‘Back to Our Streets’ won the competition.
Broadcaster SVT selects 14 acts for Melodifestivalen 2019 themselves, The Lovers of Valdaro being the first. The other 14 spots will be filled by a special jury.
