John Lundvik wins Melodifestivalen 2019 - Michael Campanella Photograpy

Congratulations to John Lundvik who won last night’s grand final of Melodifestivalen 2019 with his song “Too Late For Love.” I once again photographed the grand final of Melodifestivalen for Getty Images as it is used to select Sweden’s Eurovision candidate. Now John will now go on to represent Sweden in Tel Aviv at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest.

This year’s grand final marks my fourth time photographing Melodifestivalen, previously 2016, 2017, and 2018. Crazy how quickly time flies by as you get older.

Might as well mention that I might be covering the Eurovision Song Contest in Tel Aviv this May. I was asked if I could make myself available and have said yes. The details still need to be ironed out but I am hopefull that it all comes together and I get to photograph my third Eurovision and enjoy a week in Tel Aviv.

This afternoon I am covering my first football match of 2019 and we are kicking things off with a bang. Djurgården against Hammarby in the quarterfinals of the Swedish Cup.

Game on!
