Eurovision 2016: SVT presents the hosts on Monday
STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN – Swedish national broadcaster announced yesterday via Twitter that Eurovision Song Contest 2016 hosts will be announced on Monday, December 14th at 12:00 CET and will be streamed live on www.melodifestivalen.se website.
It is almost clear that one of the hosts will be the 2015 Eurovision winner Måns Zelmerlöw, which anyway didn’t make it to 2016 Melodifestivalen despite claiming he is composing two songs for it, as oikotimes.com reported. After all it would be much complicated to have a song for Sweden and host by the same person something that the EBU rules do not allow anymore (since the 2008 example).
Local press in Sweden though speculate that Måns will not be alone on stage as he will be joined by 2013 Eurovision hostess Petra Mede, who successfully presented the 60th Eurovision anniversary show on BBC alongside Graham Norton. Will the speculations become true?
