It seems as if David Lindgren will be hosting again, after doing a surprisingly good job last year, unsure who his co-host will be currently.

It seems there's some behind the scenes issues regarding the hosts this year, they've usually been announced for a good 2 or 3 weeks by now.

I didn't mind David this year but he seems an odd choice to go 2 years in a row, he's no Gina Dirawi.

Confirmed to be David Lindgren alone, the first time Melodifestivalen will have just one host since Petra Mede in 2009.

Are we ever NORMALLY this close to artist announcement without there being any rumours whatsoever in the tabloids?! I'm feeling BEREFT!

Anyway, time for the ALL-IMPORTANT ANNUAL WISHLIST *.*

- SaraHa to return with her Blame It On The Disco to Kizunguzungu's Stay the Night, preferably commencing the perf by DESCENDING ONSTAGE ATOP A GIANT PINEAPPLE

- Wiktoria with a literal B*Witched song

- A politicised Dolly Style return to avenge the death of Statements

- Molly Sandén and Danny to finally take their desperation to win Melodifestivalen to its obvious logical conclusion and enter a duet. Said duet must either effectively be a 2018 take on Carola & Andreas Johnson - One Love (with the exact same levels of barely concealed on-stage hatred) or Danny paying tribute to his If Only You animé lesbian years but with Molly on BVs instead of Therese

- Owe Thornqvist - Kalla nätter

- Ace Wilder continuing her track record of each of her entries chronologically tracking the different stages of twentysomething lifestyle (Busy Doin' Nothin' = the just-graduated JSA years, Don't Worry = first job but failing miserably at life, Wild Child = professional stability but so disgusted at what you've become you've taken up a habitual drug problem) and coming back with a mildly obnoxious post-spiritual retreat "I understand the world now and also do yoga on Wednesdays" Holland & Barrett tropical house anthem (co-written by Mariette)

- SOLO ANINIA

- ISA to inherit the earth with a banger finally worthy of her

- Benjamin Ingrosso and Pernilla Wahlgren IN THE SAME HEAT - either with a visibly terrified Ben duetting on a Somethin' Stupid rewrite as his mum breaks Geiger counters across Scandinavia through sheer toxic smugness, or HEAD TO HEAD in the greatest televisual stand-off since the Sandra Dahlberg vs Bjorn Kjellman Globen or Bust (preferably featuring extensive tabloid coverage beforehand featuring quotes along the lines of "when Christer first drew me against my son I was shocked, but now I think it's fine - Ben can still qualify if he finishes second" and ending in a stiff hug, a rictus grin, and the most watched murder trial in Swedish history)

I'd be well up for Eric Saade coming back with a transparent rewrite of Bieber/BloodPop - Friends.

No surprises there.

Oh YES I had heard that. Still, we normally have at least a FEW MORE names by now to be getting on with. Though given the rigmarole behind the scenes over David Lindgren and the now PHANTOM CO-HOST I'm guessing it isn't exactly plain sailing at the moment CHEZ SVT

As I Lay Me Down was only ever an Irish jig breakdown away from being exactly this!

I feel like she'll do something a bit 'cooler' if she returns again, sadly. Though she has just released a very corny, and therefore brilliant, Xmas single today so you never know.

I have a hunch that Miss Li is going to try her luck in this with something only a slightly less obvious Sia-rip off than this.



That aside, I feel like Loreen might chance her arm one more time either with something commercial forced on her by the label with her hating every minute or something even more ARTPOP than Statements as an act of pure revenge. And I reckon Maja Keuc/Amaya will be in the mix with that Max Martin-adjacent song she apparently had in the Slovenian NF last year before she got cold feet.

Yes, I reckon Miss Li's going to give it a shot too. Surprised she hasn't sooner after writing Don't Stop Believing.

From last year I'm sure Anton, Benjamin, De Vet Du, FO&O and Nano would give it another shot.
I'd (obviously) love to see Samir & Viktor and Alcazar again. I would also like to see the A*Teens rumour finally come true.
Throw a bunch of acts like Anna Book, Molly Pettersson Hammar, Panetoz, Linus Svenning and Martin Stenmarck and we'd have a real show.
