Earlier in a famous Swedish newspaper it was rumoured that David Sundin will host Melodifestivalen again in 2021. It was also rumoured that he will be joined by another co-host.
However, on the 30th September, David himself confirmed to fellow Eurovision news site escxtra, that, that he will NOT host Melodifestivalen again in 2021.
In 2020 David successfully hosted Melodifestivalen on the side of Linnea Henriksson and Lina Hedlund. At the end of the show The Mamas won with their song Move.
Melodifestivalen, otherwise known affectionately as Melfest, is an annual Swedish song contest organised by SVT and Sveriges Radio (SR) to determine the country’s representative for Eurovision Song Contest. It has been staged almost every year since 1959. The winner for Melodifestivalen is chosen by a panel of jurors and public voting, both of which have an equal influence over the final outcome.
The festival has produced 6 Eurovision winners and 24 top-five placing for Sweden at the Eurovision Song Contest to date. Memorable entries include Waterloo (1974); Den Vilda (1996), Euphoria (2012) and Undo (2014). The Mamas won Melodifestivalen 2020, and were due to sing their song Move in Rotterdam before the contest got cancelled.
