Så mycket bättre ("So Much Better") is a Swedish reality television show that airs on TV4. The basic premise is that each artist attempts to do their own version of another artists well-known songs, with each person getting an episode featuring all of their songs being performed by the other musicians. The artists spend eight days together at a hotel in Gotland, where they attempt to put their own stamps on the songs.[1]

The first series premiered on 23 October 2010 and featured Lasse Berghagen, Barbro "Lill-Babs" Svensson, Petter Askergren, Thomas Di Leva, September, Christer Sandelin and Plura Jonsson.[2] A second series premiered on 29 October 2011 and featured Lena Philipsson, Tomas Ledin, Eva Dahlgren, Mikael Wiehe, Timbuktu, Laleh and E-Type. A third season was launched on 27 October 2012 that included Darin Zanyar, Miss Li, Maja Ivarsson, Olle Ljungström, Magnus Uggla, Pugh Rogefeldt and Sylvia Vrethammar.

The show was originally made in the Netherlands and was called "De beste zangers van Nederland" and has since the original spawned to a Swedish, Norwegian TV2 called Hver gang vi møtes and a Finnish version which is called Vain Elämää.
