Hej från Sverige! Our hearts beat tonight from Stockholm, where the very last national final event of the season will be held! Our long trip around Sweden is coming to an end, with the Grand Final of the country’s annual selection show Melodifestivalen!
Twelve qualified acts will take to the stage of Friends Arena tonight, all hoping to be the ones who will perform on the stage in Rotterdam this May. Will Sweden continue the extremely successful course of recent years in the new decade?
8 of these entries qualified from the 4 semi-final evenings, that were staged in several cities around Sweden, while the rest 4 were the winners of the Andra Chansen round, which took place last Saturday in the city of Eskilstuna . The running order of tonight’s final is as follows:
- Victor Crone – Troubled waters
- Paul Rey – Talking in my sleep
- The Mamas – Move
- Mohombi – Winners
- Hanna Ferm – Brave
- Méndez feat. Alvaro Estrella – Vamos Amigos
- Dotter – Bulletproof
- Robin Bengtsson – Take a chance
- Mariette – Shout it out
- Felix Sandman – Boys with emotions
- Anna Bergendahl – Kingdom come
- Anis Don Demina – Vem e som oss
Unlike in the semi-finals and the Second Chance round, tonight’s outcome will be determined both by the public, as well as an international jury which will be consisting of members from:
- The Netherlands
Both voting bodies will contribute equally to the formation of the eventual result.
