Tonight: Fifth Super Saturday of 2020


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.

.Sweden – It’s the most anticipated National Final within the Eurovision Fandom and it resumes tonight with their fourth of the four semi finals. Melodifestivalen is back!

Eight acts will take to the stage at the Stiga Sports Arena in Eskilstuna and will compete for the chance to make the grand final on March 7th. This is tonight’s running-order:

It’s 100% televote tonight. Each duel will give us another finalist. The show starts at 20:00 (CET) and can be watched here.


Iceland – RÚV, the national broadcaster in charge of Söngvakeppnin 2020, the national final, will conclude the search for Hatari’s succession. The hard rock band got 10th last year in Icelandic! Five artists will participate in this Final, to be held in Laugardalshöll!

In Iceland, you have to participate in Icelandic in the semi-finals, but you can chose whichever language you want in the final, so that Icelandic people know which version you would send to Eurovision if chosen. The first three entries of the night will be performed in a new English version. Iva and DIMMA kept the Icelandic ones. The top 2 goes to a superfinal thanks to 50% juries and televote. In the superfinal it’s 100% televote.

  1. Andrija Jo’s performance in semi is trending as no18 on Serbian yt…

  2. 1. Katya Chilly
    2. CHAKRAS
    3. Zdenka Kovačiček
    4. JimmyP
    5. Nanne Gronvall

    Why is ESC not like this? :(

  3. What an awful Saturday!
    I’m in mourning for “Cegueira” 😭 Why, Portugal? Was it the raccoon eyes makeup?

    • Even with that make up it was THE only good song of the semi and they killed it. Knowing how much better semi 1 was it makes it all the morr tragic

      • Now all hope is on “Movimento”. Alas, I doubt Portugal will go for something this beat-laden after their flop with “Telemóveis”.

        • but then what? “Passe partout” could get them a result à la Zoë, both in esc (12th, like Leonara) and in my personal list (low top 10)

          • I’d be ok with “Passe partout” – and not only because of the hot guy – but with “Movimento” Portugal would be my personal #1 for the 3rd year in a row!

            • funny, considering they won with the one you don’t like lol

            • Yeah, true.
              It’s like you have this one artist who year after year enters the NF with great songs, but ultimately gets picked with a lackluster song.
              Nevertheless I was happy for Portugal anyway.
