Melodifestivalen 2009

Aftonbladet reports this week that 3440 songs have been entered for next year's Melodifestivalen.

3440 eh! Surely they should be able to find something that Europe might like a bit more than the last two years' entries....

SVT are certainly going all-out to ensure that Sweden does better next year. In other news Aftonbladet reports that there will be an overhaul of the joker/wildcard system. SVT will now hand-pick big-name songwriters/producers (names quoted include Idol judges Anders Bagge & Andreas Carlsson, also Bloodshy & Avant) and they, rather than SVT, will choose the artist to sing their song.
