Welcome to our liveblog for Melodifestivalen for the 5th week in a row!
The past four weeks we’ve had all 4 heats and with all songs knows, 8 songs have qualified to next weeks final directly. Eight other songs went to the second chance round, Andra Chansen.
Four duels will take place of which each winner qualifies to the final. The duels look as following:
Panetoz vs Molly Pettersson Hammar
Albin & Mattias vs Boris René
Isa vs Saraha
Dolly Style vs Samir & Viktor
Some rules were taken into consideration, when making this, which are: 1) a song that ended 3rd in it’s heat can’t be up against another 3rd placed song 2) songs from the same heat can’t be facing eachother.
This year a new way of announcing the final qualifiers is introduced: Christer Björkman has made 12 possible running orders, taken every possible outcome of tonight in consideration and at the end of the show he will announce the running order that came out, decided by which 4 songs qualify tonight.
This will happen during the show while the artist are on stage.
