ImageMelodifestivalen 2013 - Semi Final 4 took place in the hall where also the Eurovision Song Contest 2013 will take place come May - the Malmö Arena. Radio International's very own rowing reporter Lilian Brunell was on location and has been swinging her microphone backstage to interview the participants and more. This week Radio International is very much Swedish influenced with interviews and music. At this point the Radio International Mother Ship would like to thank Lilian Brunell for her great work in Malmö. 
ImageInterview with the Army of Lovers (Melodifestivalen 2013):  The Army of Lovers exists since the late 80s with 10 albums and over 20 single releases in their career. Their biggest hit was "Crucified" which charted for eight weeks at Number One in the European Singles Chart in 1991. The band has been taking part in Sweden's Melodifestivalen to obtain the ticket to the Eurovision Song Contest a few times. Their 2013 attempt is with the song "Rockin' the ride" which advanced from Semi Final 4 of Melodifestivalen 2013 to the Second Chance Round.

ImageInterview with Ulrik Munther (Melodifestivalen 2013): One of the youngest if not the youngest participant in Melodifestivalen 2013 is Ulrik Munther who saw his debut at Melodifestivalen in 2012 with the song "Soldier" that not only catapulted him to to the Final of Melodifestivalen 2012 but also reach a remarkable 3rd place. He wants to attempt again in 2013 and entered in Semi Final 4 of Melodifestivalen 2013 with a Thomas "Euphoria" G:son, Peter Boström and himself co-written song "Tell the World I'm in love". The viewers liked this song so much that Ulrik Munther qualified straight away for the Final of Melodifestivalen 2013 to take place in Stockholm's Friends Arena on 09 March 2013. Radio International's rowing reporter (yet again:) ) met Ulrik at the Aftershow Party for an interview which you can hear on this week's edition of Radio International.  
ImageInterview with Ralf Gyllenhammer (Melodifestivalen 2013): The second act after Ulrik Munther that made it straight to the Final of Melodifestivalen2013 from Semi Final 4 is Ralf Gyllenhammer with the song "Bed on Fire". Ralf Gyllenhammar is the singer in a rockband called Mustasch. His dream has been to participate in Melodifestivalen but rest of the band was not interested so he went solo for this occasion. However, his dream has come true and he is amongst the ten finalists in Stockholm's Friends Arena battling for the ticket to represent Sweden at the Eurovision Song Contest 2013. His favorite song from Melodifestivalen is "Michelangelo" with Björn Skifs from year 1975. It ended 5th but has become a huge hit in Sweden. And guess what :)  Radio International's rowing reporter (yet again:) ) met Ralf at the Aftershow Party for an interview which you can hear on this week's edition of Radio International. :) 
ImageInterview with Sylvia Vrethammar (Melodifestivalen 2013): Sylvia was born 1945 and has been a professional artist since 1967.

Since the mid-70s she has a career in Germany and partly lives there nowadays. She participated in Melodifestivalen four times. Last time was 2002 with the song "Hon är en annan nu". Sylvia Vrethammar's entry "Trivialitet" (Trivality) (composed by composed by Thomas "Euphoria" G:son, Calle Kindbom, Mats Tärnfors) was selected by the pre-juries of Melodifestivalen to be amongst the 32 acts battling it out to represent Sweden at the Eurovision Song Contest 2013. Unfortunately, last Saturday in Semi Final 4 of Melodifestivalen 2013 she did not receive enough votes to advance to the Final and thus is out of the competition.
