It has been confirmed that Carina Berg will host Melodifestivalen 2024.
Despite earlier reports that Carina Berg would be co-hosting Melodifestivalen 2024 alongside Swedish comedian Björn Gustafsson, it has now been confirmed that Carina Berg will be hosting Melodifestivalen alone.
“I can’t believe that I will be hosting the entire show. It’s the biggest television production I have been involved in, so it doesn’t just feel big, it IS big. It’s going to be so much fun and I’m looking forward to it.”
Project Manager for Melodifestivalen, Anders Wistbacka, has also chimed in on this news, stating: “For this year’s Melodifestivalen, we wanted a presenter with a capital P. We wanted a professional who is experienced, and loved by the viewers. Someone who can lead the show with a warm, glamorous and humorous tone. We put the question to Carina Berg and she said yes! I am very happy and proud and know that we have found the right one.”
