Seven Acts will take to the stage at the Coop Norrbotten Arena in Luleå 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 is tonight’s running-order:

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?
