The line-up for the Grand Final of Melodifestivalen 2018 is getting closer, as the remaining artists battle for a final place in Andra Chansen.
After four semi-finals it is time for the fifth heat of Melodifestivalen 2018, the popular selection for Eurovision in Sweden, known as Andra Chansen, the Another- or Second Chance round.
A total of 8 participants, the numbers 3 and 4 of the previous heats, still have a chance to receive a coveted ticket to the Grand Final of Melodifestivalen 2018, and thus still have a chance at representing their country at Eurovision 2018.
