Dear visitors, this article is again very popular after Sweden won Eurovision 2012. I underline that this article was published in March and it is about Melodifestivalen, the Swedish preselection where the representative for 2013 will be selected. SVT hasn't chosen where the Eurovision Song Contest itself will be held.
