The Mlovision Song Contest 2017 will be the 10th edition of the annual Mlovision Song Contest, which selects the best song according to Mlo's opinion during the year. It will take place on December 2017. The venue is still pending to confirm.
To August 2017, there are 14 songs confirmed.
On 14 July 2017, Mlo announced a pre-qualifying round to select one entry for the Mlovision Song Contest 2017. The event was held in Santiago in August 2017. Eight songs competed in the event and it had the Melodifestivalen format. "Running with Lions" by Alice Svensson from Sweden won and will take part in the Mlovision Song Contest 2017.
To date, there are fourteen songs confirmed. Among the artists, there are some Eurovision winners, participants and some other singers from the same countries that have taken part in the same contest at least once. Swedish singers Loreen (Eurovision Song Contest 2012 winner) and Måns Zelmerlöw (Eurovision Song Contest 2015 winner) will be competing for the same country, Sweden. Loreen took part in the Mlovision Song Contest 2012 with the song "Euphoria", the same entry that made her won the Eurovision Song Contest that year. After her victory, Mlovision rules were changed so, any Eurovision winning song could not take part in the Mlovision because that would be an advantage to win the first place. Måns Zelmerlöw also won the Eurovision Song Contest in 2015 with the song "Heroes", also for Sweden.
Singers Alma, Blanche and Latvian band Triana Park also were part of the Eurovision Song Contest, both in 2017.
Russian singer Yuliya Samoylova tried to represent Russia in the Eurovision Song Contest 2017, but announced their withdrawal on 13 April 2017, after she was banned from entering Ukraine by virtue of having travelled directly from Russia to Crimea in 2015, a region that was annexed by Russia in 2014, to give a performance, which is illegal under Ukrainian law.
