ⓘ Sweden in the Eurovision Song Contest 2020

Sweden originally planned to participate in the Eurovision Song Contest 2020. The Swedish broadcaster Sveriges Television organises the national final Melodifestivalen 2020 in order to select the Swedish entry for the 2020 contest in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. However, due to 2019-20 pandemic of Coronavirus, the contest was cancelled.

                                     

1. Background

Prior to the 2020 contest, Sweden had participated in the Eurovision Song Contest fifty-nine times since its first entry in 1958. Sweden had won the contest on six occasions: in 1974 with the song "Waterloo" performed by ABBA, in 1984 with the song "Diggi-Loo Diggi-Ley" performed by Herreys, in 1991 with the song "Fångad av en stormvind" performed by Carola, in 1999 with the song "Take Me to Your Heaven" performed by Charlotte Nilsson, in 2012 with the song "Euphoria" performed by Loreen, and in 2015 with the song "Heroes" performed by Måns Zelmerlow. Following the introduction of semi-finals for the 2004, Swedens entries, to this point, have featured in every final except for 2010 when the nation failed to qualify.

The Swedish national broadcaster, Sveriges Television SVT, broadcasts the event within Sweden and organises the selection process for the nations entry. Since 1959, SVT has organised the annual competition Melodifestivalen in order to select the Swedish entry for the Eurovision Song Contest.
