Melodifestivalen 2021.

What a disaster for us, Melodilovers. What on earth is going to happen to next year's contest? I do believe The Mamas have the right to finally (and thoroughly deserve) to step on an Eurovision stage.
I feel like any country that includes last years representative as an automatic finalist, they will rightly or wrongly win because of public sympathy. I think it's great certain countries will let the selected artist compete next year with a new song, but with something as huge as Melo I guess that isn't an option. I don't think I'd want to compete in a competition with last years winner if I was a well known artist.

BUT I would definitely be here for an Agnes redemption. The way her music has absolutely transcended this year, phew imagine.

If The Mamas are competing again, maybe it'll convince artists who have been reluctant about the actual "going to Eurovision"-part to compete since it could be assumed that The Mamas would win anyway.
Apparently, the eight finalists of P4 Nästa 2020 have been announced.

01 Alicja Jern - Friendzone
02 Sanna feat. Reb:bond - Aldrig det
03 Amskøld - Standby
04 Nina Bring - Nära
05 Northlight - Equally Different
06 Hilde & Erik - Som det är
07 Julia Alfrida - Dark Doom
08 Agnes Rehn - Goodbye

"The final of P4 Nästa 2020 will take place on September 12 at the Concert Hall in Västerås and the winner will have their entry played throughout Sweden regularly on P4 radio stations, while another act will be selected to take part in Melodifestivalen 2021."
Makes me sad when the act that wins P4 Nästa gets overlooked for somebody else. Not interested in the “but it’s about songs versus artists!” nonsense. Considering the previous 9 didn’t even make it to Andra Chansen (either winners or SVT’s choice)...
The P4 Nästa Melfest entry seems like a weird tradition given how unpopular it is. You would think they would phase it out as it doesn't really serve any other purpose other than SVT saying they gave some unknown a chance. But I guess that purpose is good enough.
