Stalwarts make up Melodifestivalen shortlist

Among the Melodifestivalen stalwarts competing in the 2007 competition will be Thomas G:son, who last year triumphed with the song Evighet/Invincible, sung by Carola. G:son has two songs in the running for next year's crown.

The list released by SVT only contained the names of the songs and their writers - according to Melodifestivalen and Eurovision traditions it's the songs that are competing, not the artists.

The names of the performers will be confirmed later, although a number of Melodifestivalen stalwarts are among the songwriters. These include Andreas Johnson, who came second last year with 'Sing for Me'. His entry this year, written together with Peter Kvint, is called 'A Little bit of Love'.

Andreas Lundstedt, formerly of pop band Alcazar is also among the entrants with 'Move', which he has written together with Johan Röhr.

One artist who can be guaranteed a cheer will be Nanne Grönvall, who has recently been battling breast cancer. She is expected to sing 'Jag måste kyssa dig' (I have to kiss you), which she wrote together with husband Peter Grönwall and Ingela 'Pling' Forsman.

A further four songs will enter the starting line-up before the first Melodifestivalen heats in Jönköping on 3rd February.
