Kalle will now take part in Melodifestivalen 2015 in the live heats but he will have to source a new song for the competition. He won ‘Svensktoppen Nasta’ today with the above song ‘Den där dan’ or ‘On That Day’. The song will be released now in Sweden on September 28th.

How do you think Kalle will respond to being on the big stage at Melodifestivalen next year?
