CD singles are becoming more and more rare and even Sweden, where singles were very popular now almost have nothing. Since 2016 fans and press get USB sticks and most of the Melodifestival songs are only available as downloads. Although there were some rare promo singles of I CAN’T GO ON by Robin Bengtsson, ESCCovers decided to have a promo single designed which looks stunning.




Today it is third of our 4 competitions – this time it is Sweden.

The prize you can win is the ROBIN BENGTSSON “I can’t go on” bag.

To win this, you have to do the following:

1 – go and like the Eurovision coverage facebook

2 – write to us at roy@esccovers.com and mention the name of Robin’s song from the 2016 Swedish selection

All entries will again be put into a hat and one will be drawn. That person will be asked to send us his/her postal address for the bag.



The Swedish selection for Eurovision 2017 in Kyiv takes place tonight.

After 4 semi finals and a second chance round, the 28 acts have been narrowed to 12 and they will fight it out to represent Sweden in May.

The Swedish Eurovision entry  will be determined via 50/50 public televoting-international jury deliberation.

It is difficult for ESCCovers to single out who we will promote but finally we decided on FO&O with “Gotta thing about you” as one of the composers Robert “Mutt” Lange is from South Africa and ESC Covers is a South African based website.
