The Swedish Melodifestivalen Final on March 12 is the last national selection of 2011. Eurocovers is of course very pleased to see Linda Bengtzing still in the running with her song E De Fel På Mig.
In 2008 Linda B. made it to the Melodifestivalen final with her 3rd attempt Hur svårt kan det va?.
Will she be able to take it that one step further this time.
In this Road To Belgrade style Eurocovers post you can find out about her MF songs and especially her Eurovision coverversions she recorded when she was only 12.

Update: All four Linda Bengtzing MF hits are now available on her new compilation CD Min Karusell - En Samling. It features 10 Bengtzing hits and four karaoke tracks (3 MF songs in Karaoke)

Other Swedish MF finalists are the Playtones who feature in this Autobahn to Düsseldorf post.

Russia have selected Alexey Vorobyov to represent the country at the 2011 contest.
Eurocovers reported on Vorobyev in 2009 when he participated in the Russian national final.
