Sweden loves both teen pop and rockabilly

Two very different styles of Swedish popular music were the winners of Saturday's Melodifestivalen - the latest heat of the contest to choose the Swedish Eurovision entry.

Young pop heartthrob Eric Saade will be going to the final with his performance of 'Popular'. The other finalist was the 50s style dance-band The Playtones, with 'The King'.
