No more Melodifestivalen for Salem

In this article in Aftonbladet today, Salem said that he was very satisfied with his second place in this year's Melodifestivalen, which he described as "absolutely fantastic" and had won many new fans as a result.

However, Salem confirmed that he will not be participating again in the contest. This does not come as a surprise, as in various interviews before and after the contest, Salem made it very clear that he had participated as an 'experiment' (which has been a very successful experiment!) and was not a traditional 'schlager' artist. As a Salem fan I can only agree with his decision - he is an artist who does everything on his own terms and Melodifestivalen was no different. Melodifestivalen was a wonderful and unexpected surprise, and Salem is full of surprises! The best thing about Salem is that we genuinely don't know what he is going to do next...
