Another 14 artists are ready to compete in the Melodifestivalen 2022 and thus the starting field is complete. Opera pop is re-entering and there will be even more rock, more previous winners are on stage and new artists are making their entrance. Names that have been added include Lisa Miskovsky, Tone Sekelius, Robin Bengtsson and Lancelot.

– The first 14 artists were released last week and now we add more previous winners, exciting reunions and a happy reunion. In addition, opera pop is making a comeback and new shooting stars will touch. It is a musical diversity that meets viewers and audiences in Mello 2022 – and that I long to see them all on stage, says competition producer Karin Gunnarsson .
