STOCKHOLM – Robin Bengtsson has won Melodifestivalen 2017. He will represent Sweden at the Eurovision Song Contest 2017 in Kyiv with the song I Can’t Go On. Robin won by a combination of international jury votes and televotes.

I’m quite pleased that he has won Melodifestivalen. He probably was the best choice for Sweden. I just think that it isn’t something refreshing. This is exactly what I expect from Sweden at Eurovision. I think it’s going to do well, it’s probably a song that will be really popular with televoters. The performance is really good,it’s memorable. I don’t think this is a winner, but it could end somewhere in the top 5. Personally, I think it’s an okay song but not my favorite. 7/10
