Moments ago, the 4th heat of Melodifestivalen took place and determined the finalised lineup of the second chance round Andra Chansen.
Whilst a total of eight acts have directly qualified to the grand final of the selection, a further eight acts (who reached the 3rd and 4th position during the semi-finals) will receive a second chance in the Andra Chansen round with each act competing in a duel. The duels have been arranged by Swedish broadcaster SVT.
From each of the four duels, one act will qualify to the final of the selection, meaning that a total of twelve finalists will compete for the Melodifestivalen 2017 victory on 11 March 2017.
