Winning song"Never Let It Go" by Afro-dite

Melodifestivalen 2002 was the selection for the 42nd song to represent Sweden at the Eurovision Song Contest. It was the 41st time that this system of picking a song had been used. Five semi-finals had taken place to select the ten songs for the final, in Växjö, Norrköping, Sundsvall, Falun and a Second Chance round in Stockholm. The final was broadcast on SVT1 and Sveriges Radio's P4 network. The introduction of the semi-finals and the allowance of songs in English resulted in a marked increase in voters. The final was watched by 3,720,000 people, with 926,318 votes cast in the final.

Semi-finals[edit]

The semi-finals for Melodifestivalen 2002 began on 19 January 2002. Ten songs from these semi-finals qualified for the final on 1 March 2002. This was the first year that a semi-final format had been used for the competition. This was the first year that songs were permitted in languages other than Swedish, resulting in a significant number of English language songs, and two songs with lyrics in Spanish. "Ett vackert par", composed by Py Bäckman and Micke Wennborn was disqualified before the competition, when the dance band Grönwalls had performed it on the radio before the contest (not knowing it was supposed to enter). Nanne Grönvall and Nick Borgen was thought as possible performers. It was replaced by "Sista andetaget".
