Another night in the long 2022 campaign of Melodifestivalen. The most followed national selection continued tonight live from Stockholm with the second chance contest. The last four spots for the Grand Final were up for grabs.

The famous second chance contest gave eight acts another possibility to qualify to the Grand Final of Melodifestival 2022. With the usual Oscar Zia as host, live from Friends Arena in Stockholm these were tonight’s competing entries:

Group I

They were split in two groups and battled for the last four qualifying spots. The audience delivered the results. The qualifiers of the first group were Anna Bergendahl and Tone Sekelius. From the second group Theoz and Cazzi Opeia.
