SWEDEN – Melodifestivalen 2021 is the 61st edition of the Swedish music competition Melodifestivalen.
The competition is organised by Sveriges Television (SVT) and takes place over a six-week period between 6 February and 13 March 2021.
Due to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, all shows of this edition take place in the Annexet in Stockholm, and without an audience.
The winner of the competition will represent Sweden in the Eurovision Song Contest 2021 in Rotterdam, Netherlands.
Guiding us through this epic evening of Scandinavian drama is the highly talented team of Måns Zelmerlöw, Shima Niavarani and Christer Björkman – so expect a song or two from our hosts as well.
That’s not all… following in the footsteps of Finland’s UMK, and to satisfy a growing online audience, English commentary will be provided for the first time in Melfest history, courtesy of Bella Qvist and Olivia Le Poidevin.
There will be 50% public voting and 50% international juries voting. International voting will be made through the following countries: Albania, Cyprus, France, Iceland, Israel, The Netherlands, Switzerland and the United Kingdom (which replaced Belarus, under recent developments).
