Last night, Swedish broadcaster, SVT, published the videos of the semi final performances of the ten acts that will participate in Saturday night's Melodifestivalen, the final national selection show of the 2008 Eurovision Song Contest season. The show will be broadcast live on the internet via the official Melodifestivalen website.

Because of the nature of the competition, songs that qualify for the final are removed from public view until all entries have been decided in order to protect the fairness of the contest. Once all the finalists are determined, they are all put back online. This is to prevent songs from earlier weeks of the show gaining an unfair advantage.

The ten songs that will participate in the final are (Click the links to purchase the CD single):
