STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN – Today a shock came in the Swedish preselection Melodifestivalen. One of the participants, Anna Book, who were to participate in the first semi final on Saturday with the song “Himmel för två”, have been disqualified from the competition.
In a press conference tonight, the Swedish broadcaster SVT announced that the song can not participate in the competition. The reason why is that the song was performed in the Moldovan national final in 2014 with Felicia Dunaf and the song title “Taking Care Of A Broken Heart”.
They have also offered Anna to perform the song as an interval act, but she has not yet decided if she wants to.
