|Sweden in the Eurovision Song Contest|
Sweden chose their entry for the Eurovision Song Contest 2003 in the national selection Melodifestivalen 2003. Just like the year before, four semifinals and a "second chance" heat with eight songs in each were held. 2 from each went to the final in Globen. The winners were Fame consisting of Jessica Andersson and Magnus Bäcklund. Their song, written by Calle Kindbom and Carl Lösnitz, was called Give me your love, and was a typical schlager–disco song.
Fame were drawn to sing as #25 (second to last) at the ESC final in Riga. They finished 5th with 107 points.

Meaning that Sweden automatically qualified for the final in the 2004 contest.
