Another exciting night has just ended in Sweden as the third semifinal of Melodifestivalen 2017 took place in the VIDA Arena of Växjo, and the televoters decided to send Robin Bengtsson and Owe Thörnqvist to the grand final in Stockholm.

During the first round of voting, Jasmine Kara (6th place) and Krista Siegfrids (7th place) went out of the competition. The second round of voting decided then who will go to the final, who will get a second chance and who will leave the competition:


  • Robin Bengtsson – I can’t go on
  • Owe ThörnqvistBoogieman blues


  • Anton Hagman – Kiss you goodbye
  • Felix, Oscar & Omar FO&O – Gotta thing about you

And Bella & Filippa were placed 5th and went out of the competition as well.

Being a hard semifinal, our Press Poll on location in Växjö managed to predict that Robin Bengtsson will sail to the final and Anton Hagman will get a second chance. The rest came as a surprise to all Sweden and the Eurovision fans around the globe.
