Sweden: Melodifestivalen Final Tonight

Sweden – It’s the most anticipated National Final within the Eurovision Fandom and it finally concludes tonight with the infamous “Finalen”. Melodifestivalen is getting close to an end!

Twelve acts will take the stage at the Friends Arena in Stockholm and will compete for the chance to represent Sweden in the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest to be held in Tel Aviv in May.

The competing finalists are:

  1. Jon Henrik Fjällgren – “Norrsken (Goeksegh)”
  2. Lisa Ajax – “Torn”
  3. Mohombi – “Hello”
  4. Lina Hedlund – “Victorious”
  5. Bishara – “On My Own”
  6. Anna Bergendahl – “Ashes to Ashes”
  7. Nano – “Chasing Rivers”
  8. Hanna Ferm & LIAMOO – “Hold You”
  9. Malou Prytz – “I Do Me”
  10. John Lundvik – “Too Late for Love”
  11. Wiktoria – “Not with Me”
  12. Arvingarna – “I Do”

Eight of them qualified directly from the first four Semifinals and four more joined last week in the Second Chance round. Tonight’s show will yet again be hosted by Sarah Dawn Finer, Kodjo Akolor, Marika Carlsson and Eric Saade. Sarah will even do a skip featuring Lynda Woodruff!The show will open with Benjamin Ingrosso and Felix Sandman together. Dana International and Charlotte Perrelli, two former Eurovision winners, will also share the stage for a duet in the halftime show in honor of Charlotte’s win in Israel in 1999 after Dana had won the contest. There will also be the famous “last year’s winner reprise in a new genre” as an interval act, but who will cover “Dance You Off”?

Two sets of votes for tonight: 8 international juries instead of 11 because of the new televote system and televote at 50%, broken down into age groups. How much will this new system impact the final results?

The show starts at 20:00 (CET) and can be watched here.
