Europa, vi har ett resultat! Tonight an special online show by SVT, was held at 20:00 CET, on its official Eurovision/Melodifestivalen website. Online users around Europe could add their comments on the live chat.
The show consisted on awarding the proper prizes to this year’s Melfest artists, separated in very well different categories.The biggest number of awards went to this year’s Swedish act in Malmö, Robin Stjërnberg, YOHIO, Melfest 2013 runner-up and Sean Banan.
The pictures of the artists with the awards will be uploaded soon. It was a difficult competition, as YOHIO and Anton Ewald were competing for being one of the 3rd artists with more prizes, but YOHIO came on with the victory, together with Robin and Sean, as previously said. Both Robin and Sean got 4 prizes each one, then YOHIO (3), Anton Ewald (2), Ulrik Munther, Caroline Af Ugglas and State of Drama (1).
