Melodifestivalen 2017 Sweden’s national selection for the Eurovision Song Contest is in full swing at the Friends Arena in Stockholm. The winner will be decided again by a mixture of televoting (50%) and international juries (50%), and earlier today the countries that will be voting, along with their spokesmen, were revealed:

  • Malta – Gordon Bonello
  • Norway – Anette Lauenborg Waaler
