The Hunt For Eurovision Gold

The northern coastal town of Örnsköldsvik will play host tomorrow to the kick-off of Melodifestivalen, the so-called Melody Festival where Sweden's contribution to this year's Eurovision Song Contest will be decided. The first of four rounds, a total of 32 hopefuls will be performing over the next month.

The last time Sweden had a winner was 1999, when Charlotte Nilsson took home the Eurovision gold with her number "Take Me To Your Heaven."
