SVT this week announced the 28 acts competing in the 2017 Melodifestivalen semi-finals.
The acts include two former winners of the Eurovision Song Contest, Loreen (2012) and Charlotte Perrelli (1999). Roger Pontare (1994, 2000) and Krista Siegfrids (Finland 2013) also return and we see Lisa Ajax and Robin Bengtsson return from last year.
Legendary songwriter from Sweden, Thomas G:sson has four songs competing.
It looks like a strong line up for 2017.
