However, he may not have the same feeling in the yoik in the Melodifestivalen limelight that he gets at home.

Rebecka Karlsson believe that Dolly Style, and Omar Rudberg will be tough competitors – but her song ”Who I am” is about believing in yourself, and that is exactly what she is doing.
"If I just put the notes, I think I have very good chances," she says.
Omar Rudberg looks to be in the competition according to both the bookmakers and genrepsundersökningen. He himself dare not, however, hope for something – and refers to the changes in the vote count.
– this new voting system that no one understands, it is the only thing I get nervous over. Then deem not the artists after the talent, everyone is talented. There is something else people are checking for, " he says.
