It’s one of the fan-favorites national selection and it comes from Sweden.
The traditional “Melodifestivalen” will be as every year the platform for choosing the Swedish artist and s song for Eurovision.
The national selection which includes 6 shows will be aired on the following dates:
February 6th – Semi-Final 1
February 13th – Semi-Final 2
February 20th – Semi-Final 3
February 27th – Semi-Final 4
March 6th – Second Chance
March 13th – Grand Final
Atypically, all of the shows will be broadcast from one place only, in Stockholm.
Traditionally, every show is broadcast from different city of Sweden. However the Corona virus and the caused restrictions regarding public events won’t allow to hold a show in various venues.
Another important element is the audience. “Melodifestivalen” is a well known music show that includes thousands of people in the crowd. Nevertheless, at the moment, the Swedish government limits the amount of people in such public events to 50 people only! On the other hand, the Swedish government will probably update the upper limit to 500 people with social distancing.
To sum up, it is still unclear whether a live studio will be present at the venue.
