Lilla Melodifestivalen

Last updated

Lilla Melodifestivalen was the Swedish national final that selected the entry to represent Sweden in Melodi Grand Prix Nordic, a defunct song contest for Scandinavian singers aged 8 to 15. Between 2003 and 2005, Sweden sent its winners to the Junior Eurovision Song Contest (JESC), when MGP Nordic was not active. In 2006, Sweden's broadcaster withdrew itself from JESC, along with Denmark and Norway, continued to participate in MGP Nordic instead.

In 2010, SVT returned to the Junior Eurovision, so the winner goes to the big European competition. In 2015, Lilla Melodifestivalen was cancelled in order to put focus on a new singing contest called Supershowen. If Sweden were return to the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in the future, they would use a new selection format to replace Lilla Melodifestivalen, as Supershowen runs from October to November.
