Who are you excited the most about, Laura? :)

Well Damian, I'm excited to see Martin Rolinski and Robin Stjernberg on that list, I'm also interested to see what Ulrik Munther would do next as I really liked "Soldiers" which became one of my most-played MF 2012 songs after the contest. Apart from those two, I'm not so excited by many of the other names on the list although it would be nice to see Jessica Andersson come back with an uptempo song this time.

After that list was published I then read even more rumours in Aftonbladet which mentioned Eddie Razaz so my excitement just went up-up-up-up! Eric Gadd was also mentioned, which would be very interesting. I've been a fan of his music for quite a while and I loved his last album.

The best thing about Melodifestivalen is seeing artists whom you would not normally expect in that kind of contest so I hope that we get a few surprises when the line-up is announced.
