After many weeks of tough competition in the Melodifestivalen 2007 contest, Sweden has selected local band The Ark to represent their country in this year's Eurovision Song Contest.
The Ark's glam-rock song The Worrying Kind
will compete in the final of this year's contest in Helsinki, after Sweden finished 5th in Athens last year with Carola's Invincible
. Eurovision commentators have described The Worrying Kind
as a little like "The Bay City Rollers meets Slade in The Darkness".
Eurovision fans are divided about the Swede's selection of The Ark. For many the choice brings back bad memories of 2005, when Sweden were relegated after Martin Stenmarck's song Las Vegas
finished 19th in the final.
This year's Melodfestivalen wasn't up to Sweden's usual standard, but here's a clip of the song the country should have chosen... Måns Zelmerlöw with Cara Mia
. (Måns polled 2nd with Swedish televoters, but the Jury placed him just fourth).
