"Det blir alltid värre framåt natten" - Björn Skifs

"It always gets worse late at night, far away from the light and all the laughter"

The Swedish Final was held on February 11th at the Cirkus in Stockholm, hosted by Ulf Elfving.  The winning song was chosen by the votes of 11 regional juries.  After the voting, there was a tie for first place, therefore the 11 juries were contacted again and asked to choose between the 2 songs - Björn Skifs won by 8 votes to 3.
