Melodifestivalen Last Year

Cornelia Jakobs singing Hold Me Closer topped the combined scoreboard and became the Swedish Eurovision entry in 2022.

The Melodifestivalen favourites were Anders Bagge with his sing-along power balled "Bigger Than The Universe" which featured a children's choir, and Cornelia Jakobs softer song "Hold Me Closer"

Melodifestivalen betting momentum was with the more modern song Hold Me Closer, rather than the more traditional Bigger than The Universe.
