It's that time of year again: the marathon series of TV shows to select Sweden's entry for this year's Eurovision Song Contest has begun. Melodifestivalen, it's called, and it runs for a whole six weeks, with a range of semi-finals and second chance sing-offs before we get to the final itself in March.

Our very own Eurovision expert, Kris Boswell, braves a chilly Malmö to take us through all the latest gossip, contraversies surrounding voting, and the artists tipped to go all the way in this year's selction process - a process that leaves some scratching their heads as to how the voting system works.

And with news that even Australia will be competing in this year's Eurovision, we gauge reaction to their inclusion. As Kris explains, Swedes do not mind the Australians competing, just as long as they don't beat Sweden.
