ⓘ Move (The Mamas song)

Move is a gospel-pop song by Swedish music group The Mamas. The song was performed for the first time in Melodifestivalen 2020, where it made it to the final. The song won Melodifestivalen with 137 points and would have represented Sweden in the first semifinal of the Eurovision Song Contest 2020 in Rotterdam. It peaked at number one on the Swedish single chart. The contest was cancelled in March 2020 due to the 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic.

The winner of Melodifestivalen represents Sweden at the Eurovision Song Contest.

1.2. Eurovision Song Contest In Rotterdam

The Eurovision Song Contest 2020 was originally scheduled to take place at Rotterdam Ahoy in Rotterdam, Netherlands and consist of two semi-finals on 12 and 14 May, and a final on 16 May 2020. According to Eurovision rules, each country, except the host nation and the "Big 5", would have been required to qualify from one of two semi-finals to compete for the final; the top ten countries from each semi-final would have progressed to the final. On 28 January 2020, the allocation draw was held, placing "Move" into the first half of the first semi-final. However, due to the 2020 coronavirus pandemic in Europe, the contest was cancelled on 18 March 2020. The EBU announced soon after that entries intended for 2020 would not be eligible for the following year, though each broadcaster would be able to send either their 2020 representative or a new one.


1.3. Eurovision Song Contest Alternative song contests

Some of the broadcasters scheduled to take part in the Eurovision Song Contest 2020 have organised alternative competitions. Austrias ORF aired Der kleine Song Contest in April 2020, which saw every entry being assigned to one of three semi-finals. A jury consisting of ten singers that had represented Austria at Eurovision before was hired to rank each song; the best-placed in each semi-final advanced to the final round. In the second semi-final on 16 April, "Move" placed second in a field of 14 participants, achieving 86 points. The song is also scheduled to participate in Sveriges Televisions Sveriges 12:a in May.
