ESC Covers’ Predictions For The Winner of Melodifestivalen 2024

Tomorrow night, the Grand Final of Sweden’s Melodifestivalen takes place at the Friends Arena in the Swedish capital. Our very own Ian Fowell is currently over in Stockholm along with Graham Ridge from Dutch Eurovision Central, eagerly awaiting the live show tomorrow.

ESC Covers have assesed all of the twelve finalists in the contest, and have come up with three songs and acts that we think are the most likely to fly the flag for Sweden in the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest in Malmö.

Song #7: Marcus & Martinus – Unforgettable

We love this one, and think it’s about time M&M finally get to represent Sweden at Eurovision. The song is modern, lively and has a great melody and rhythm all the way through. The staging is also impressive with the guys’ being surrounded in their own kind of digital LED light box. It’s quite atmospheric and looks like something you’d see in either one of The Matrix or Tron movies. Will the public finally see past their Norwegian backgrounds and let Marcus & Martinus represent them?

Song #8: Dotter – It’s Not Easy To Write A Love Song

Our next choice is another returning artist, Dotter. We saw her reaching second place in Melodifestivalen 2020 with her song ‘Bulletproof’. It’s a different style this time around, with Dotter opting for more of a classic ballad style. The performance is powerful, and although the staging is relatively simple with her rolling around and standing on a Grand Piano, we think it deserves to do quite well. This one will all be about the vocals tomorrow night. If she can iron out a few minor issues that we heard in the Semi-final, this stands a good chance at winning.

Song #12: Danny Saucedo – Happy That You Found Me

Our third and final choice to win Melodifestivalen 2024 is multiple times contestant, Danny Saucedo. He’s in a great postition in the running order, closing the show, and again, it’s another upbeat banger. The staging is unique and quirky too, with the floor at the beginning looking like someone has gone wild with a Spirograph, to an unintentionally amusing ‘Frank Spencer’ moment where the set collapses over him. If it does win, there’s a lot of similar sounding songs heading to Malmö, which could be its downfall.

Honourable mentions:

Depending on which way the public vote tomorrow, we could also see Smash Into Pieces, Cazzi Opeia, and Jacqline near the top of the scoreboard.

The Melodifestivalen 2024 final takes place tomorrow night at 20:00CET and is available to watch on SVT1 and on SVT Play.
