The Melodifestival continues

Last night's was in Malmö, and this show was top-heavy with a range of well-endowed singers. The winners were Malena Ernman, an opera signer who hit high C frequently, and Agnes (pictured), who wore a gold lamé catsuit for her disco number.

Next week is the 'second chance' round, and then the grand final the week after. A Swedish pub in London is broadcasting all of the shows. I'm trying to talk Sooz into going..!

Do all the performers sing in English?

I'd say about a third Swedish and two-thirds English.

Some countries always sing in their own language. France (no surprise) is one of those. I've seen German entries emulate Dolly Parton and Frank Sinatra lately, so pretty much anything goes.
