STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN – One of the 12 hopeful acts to win Melodifestivalen 2016 this Saturday is Samir & Viktor with “Bada Nakna”.
After last Saturday’s second chance round Samir has got a warning from SVT because he was wearing underwear with a clear mark with the company’s name and a T-shirt with a printet mark on as well. This is not allowed due to SVT’s public service obligations.
A Swedish TV host Alexander Norén warns Samir if he should do the same in the final. Every time SVT is accused in these matters it costs a lot of money for SVT which is all license. We do know that Samir will take the t-shirt off, at least during the performance!
