Sweden’s Melodifestivalen will kick off tonight with its first semifinal. Seven songs will participate but only four will continue their quest to the Eurovision Song Contest 2017.


Tonight’s show will be held in the Scandinavium Arena in Göteborg, hosted by Hasse Andersson, David Lindgren and Clara Henry. Seven songs will participate, and the results will be decided by 100% televoting: first, the top five will advance to a second round of voting, and then the first two places will go directly to the final, places 3 and 4 will get another chance in the Andra chansen round and the fifth place will leave the contest.


The show will begin at 20:00 CET and will run for 1 hour and 30 minutes. It is watchable on SVT1 as well as on SVT Play via Melodifestivalen’s official website.
