Germany and Sweden are next.
In Germany the international fans can have a say. Besides that the fans can see rehearsals and of course the live show. The songs will be available in the app on February 8th and the fans will be able to start voting up to the beginning of the live show. The German voters will decide the winner knowing in advance what the international audience voted!
In Sweden additional extra material from the rehearsals will be available for the users of the app in advance of the live shows for the first time. In the meantime SVT prohibited the use of confetti during the Melodifestivalen performances due to the sensitive LED used in the stage this year.
