The four semi finals, the second chance round and the grand final of Melodifestivalen will be joined by a seventh live TV show: On 8th November, the web joker qualifiers will be chosen to compete in the semi finals.

Entries can be submitted to SVT from today until 21st September. The internet voting will start on 11th October with five songs qualifying for the live show to be broadcast on SVT24 on 8th November. Two songs will be chosen to join the other 30 semi finalists.

The web joker was introduced last year. However, winners MiST only finished seventh in their semi final thus not qualifying for the final or the second chance round.
