The remaining half of the contestants for the Swedish national song contest, Melodifestivalen, has been announced.

This year will see a comeback for the 1980s group Army of Lovers and the return of the popular singer Caroline af Ugglas, plus the record breaking entry of an Idol winner, Amanda Fondell, who won that competition just last year.

“The return of Army of Lovers is of course a lot of fun. On the other hand, I’m glad that we also have lesser known artists making their debut,” producer Christer Björkman told Swedish Television.

Fans of older Swedish music will also not be disappointed with the entry of Tommy Körberg who has won the national contest twice previously.

And one surprise entry comes from Behrang Miri, who made headlines earlier this year when he argued that Tin Tin books be removed from library shelves on the grounds that they were racist.

The national song contest has four different stages each held in different cities around the country, starting on 2 February in Karlskrona in southern Sweden.
