Melodifestivalen finalist: "It still hasn't sunk in"
Published fredag 9 februari kl 10.30

Melodifestivalen, the Swedish selection for the Eurovision Song Contest, is upon us again. We spoke to John Lundvik, one of the finalists, about what it is like to go weak in the knees in front of over 3 million viewers.

Last weekend, the Swedish selection for the Eurovision song contest started with a first heat competing in Karlstad. Two acts made it straight to the final, which will be held in the beginning of March: Benjamin Ingrosso with "Dance you off" and John Lundvik with "My turn".

Radio Sweden spoke to John Lundvik, who has worked for a long time as a song-writer, about what it is like to take the step into the spotlight and about the importance of Melodifestivalen for artists.
