It’s another Super Saturday in the 2022 Eurovision campaign. Among the several shows throughout the continent, Sweden’s Melodifestivalen approaches the last stop before the final. After four exciting semi-finals it is time for the “second chance” contest, where acts will receive a second opportunity to advance to the final.

The most anticipated national selection of the season aka Melodifestivalen in Sweden enters its final stretch. Eight qualified acts from the fourth semi-finals will battle for the last four spots in the Grand Final. The 62nd edition of the Swedish national song contest will soon deliver the name of the Swedish representative at the forthcoming Eurovision Song Contest in Turin!

How to watch?

You can watch Melodifestivalen Andra Chansen at 20:00 CET via the following channels:

Second chance contest

The second chance contest of Melodifestivalen 2022 will take place at the Friends Arena in Stockholm. Tonight’s line-up is made of the third and fourth placed entries from the four semi-finals. They have deserved a second opportunity to convince the audience that they are worth of a place in the Grand Final scheduled next Saturday 12 March.

Is the overall winner among these entries? In 2013 Robin Stjernberg went through the Andra Chansen and was eventually crowned winner of the Swedish Festival with the song You. He went on to represent Sweden at the Eurovision Song Contest in Malmö, placing 14th in the Final.
