Just like last year, we will witness Super Saturdays with many shows happening all at once. Instead of opening all threads, hard to follow for everyone, we decided to have just one thread for all shows to follow live so we can all discuss them together. Tonight: 3 shows but no finals yet!
Seven Acts will take to the stage at the Saab Arena in Linköping and will compete for the chance to make the grand final on March 7th. The top two will reach the grand final and the acts that come third and fourth will proceed onto the Second Chance round. This week we see the return of Robin Bengtsson (Eurovision 2008), Felix Sandman (MF runner-up in 2018), Malou Prytz, Sonja Aldén and last year’s backing singers The Mamas. The semi-finalists for tonight are:
- The Mamas – Move
- Suzi P – Moves
- Robin Bengtsson – Take A Chance
- Malou Prytz – Ballerina
- OVÖ – Inga problem
- Sonja Aldén – Sluta aldrig gå
- Felix Sandman – Boys With Emotions
It’s 100% televote tonight. The first round eliminates the bottom 2 entries. The second round sees 5 entries battling for the four qualifying places, two “direkt til finalen” and two to “andra chasen”. How much do we learn Swedish in MF, really? The show starts at 20:00 (CET) and can be watched here.
Norway – This year’s Melodi Grand Prix will feature 5 semi-finals in order to celebrate the 60 years of Norway’s participation in Eurovision. The 4th semi-final takes place tonight. 4 participants will battle for the televote’s ticket for the final.
The 4 acts taking part for Central Norway are:
- Hege Bjerk – Pang
- Magnus Bokn – Over The Sea
- Nordic Tenors- In This Special Place
- Oda Loves You – Love Who We Love
The hosts Kåre Magnus Bergh, Ingrid Gjessing Linhave and Ronny Brede Aase will first draw the two duels. The two winners of the duels will then face one another for the televote’s tickets for the final, which will be hosted in Trondheim. A jury already looked at the 5 semi-finalists of each semi-final and picked a winner to qualify directly to the final. Tonight’s jury qualifier is Ulrikke Brandstorp singing Attention.
The show starts at 19:50 CET and you can watch it here.
