Melodifestivalen – we’ll be liveblogging and translating from Swedish live!

sanne-och-robin-jpgIt’s less than two weeks until what is arguably the biggest and best Eurovision national selection gets underway, Sweden’s Melodifestivalen.

We’ll be liveblogging right here and on Twitter (at @ukineurovision), translating what is said by the presenters and artists from Swedish into English and keeping you up to date with the latest reactions from Swedish media and witty commentators such as Jonas Gardell.

Our first liveblog will start when previews of the songs go live on Friday 6 February and will go right through to the post-show analysis after the first selection live show finishes on Saturday 7 February at 8.30pm local time.

So check back and join in the discussion!

The @ukineurovision team.


My first Eurovision memory is watching the nervous Doireann NĂ­ Bhriain present the 1981 contest from Dublin where of course Bucks Fizz won. So yes, I'm no spring chicken.
