On this page are a list of songs covered in South Africa from the Swedish National Final selection (Melodifestivalen) over the years as well as selection songs from other countries. Our knowledge of selection songs is not very good and there could be many covers we simply do not know about and again we will love it if you know of something we can add to this list.
