Today, the fourth and last semi-final of the Swedish national selection Melodifestivalen will take place live from Gävle!
During the show, another seven artists will perform their songs in order to qualify for the next Melodifestivalen stage. However, only four out of them will qualify for the next stage as a result of the voting process solely based on viewers voting. Artists getting the first and the second places will make it through to the grand final. Whereas, the artists getting the third and the fourth places will compete at the “Second Chance” round to be held next Saturday, where four artists out of eight will qualify for the grand final.
Who will be among tonight’s qualifiers? The line-up of the show is as it follows:
- Eclipse “Runaways”
- Dolly Style “Rollercoaster”
- Martin Stenmarck “Du tar mig tillbaks”
- Linda Bengtzing “Killer Girl”
- Frans “If I Were Sorry”
- Panetoz “Håll om mig hårt”
- Molly Sandén “Youniverse”
The competition is going to be exciting, as among the above mentioned artists there are former entrants of the Eurovision Song Contest, Melodifestivalen, as well as the Junior Eurovision Song Contest. Martin Stenmarck represented Sweden at Eurovision 2005. Whereas, among the former Melodifestivalen participants we can find Dolly Style, Linda Bengtzing, Molly Sandén and Panetoz. However, it is interesting to note that Molly Sandén also represented Sweden at Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2006, as well as was a special guest at Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2011. Thus, Molly has already got her name known in Europe.
