It's nearly Christmas, so time for Swedish tellymakers SVT to reveal the acts who will compete to represent them at the Eurovision Contest of Song in 2018.
The rumour mill has been running apace, but a press conference today revealed details of the 28 songs and performers for the 2018 Melodifestivalen.
Chief Melfest Man Christer Björkman has promised a mix of styles, from humour (oh joy) to traditional schlager with everything inbetween. So that's helpful.
