Sweden – The 12 finalists in this years Melodifestivalen competition take to the stage tonight to win a place in the Eurovision 2016 final. As host nation, the representative does not have to go through the semi-final stage in May.
Watch online on the SVT Stream HERE from 20.00 (CET). Last year’s winner Mans Zelmerlow will perform and Linda Woodruff may make an appearance.
The 12 finalists are:
Panetoz “Håll om mig hårt”
Lisa Ajax “My Heart Wants Me Dead”
David Lindgren “We Are Your Tomorrow”
Oscar Zia “Human”
Ace Wilder “Don’t Worry”
Robin Bengtsson “Constellation Prize”
Molly Sandén “Youniverse”
Boris René “Put Your Love on Me”
Frans “If I Were Sorry”
Wiktoria “Save Me”
Samir & Viktor “Bada nakna”
Gina Dirawi and William Spetz will host the show from the Friends Arena in Stockholm.
Voting will be 50/50 public and jury. The jury is made up of the following international juries this year:
- Bosnia & Herzegovina
- The Netherlands
Favourite to win is Frans, but Molly Sanden seems to have jumped into 2nd place in the betting odds. Will we see an upset as we did with Yohio 2 years ago when the jury votes are added?
Eurovision Times’ readers buck the trend and do not want Frans to win… he’s down in 10th place in our recent poll! You want Lisa Ajax to win with 23.06% of the vote with Ace Wilder in 2nd place with 15.3%.
