Sweden 2018 🇸🇪 Pernilla Wahlgren causes problem to Benjamin Ingrosso
SWEDEN – Benjamin Ingrosso who qualified for the final in Sweden’s Melodifestivalen last Saturday. His mother Pernilla Wahlgren, who has participated in Melodifestivalen several times, spread a bit of Benjamin’s song on social media.
The national broadcaster SVT has clear rules that says that the semi final winning songs can not be published before after the last semi final to create fair competition. Contest Producer Christer Björkman states, that Benjamin still can participate in the final on March 10th.
“We expect Benjamin to take this up with her mom immediately and correct the situation,” he says.
”Since it wasn’t the authors, record companies or artists that spread the song and with respect to all the viewers who have chosen to vote the bid directly to the final, we do not intend to disqualify the song from the competition.”
