The Swedish Andra Chansen round just reached its end, two more songs made it to the Final after tonight’s exciting sing-off. The final line-up is now ready, one week until Sweden makes it final choice.

Eight songs were in the run tonight – after becoming either third or fourth in one of the four semi-finals. Lidköping gave home to the contest tonight, and the next stop is the capital itself – Stockholm!

Among the Andra Chansen competitiors, you can find Martin Stenmarck who represented Sweden in 2005, coming 19th, and Helena Paparizou, who won Eurovision in the same year, for Greece.

Tonight’s competing songs were the following:

  • Ammotrack – Raise your hands
  • Linus Svenning – Bröder
  • J.E.M – Love trigger
  • State of Drama – All we are
  • Ellinore Holmberg – En himmelsk sång
  • Martin Stenmarck – När änglerna går hem
  • Helena Paparizou – Survivor
  • Outtriger – Echo

In two rounds of voting the Swedish public shortlisted the line-up to only four songs – in the final phase of the evening, the TOP4 songs were sung again, in two duels, which were the following:

  • Outtriger – Echo versus Helena Paparizou – Survivor
  • Linus Svenning – Bröder versus Martin Stenmarck – När änglarna går hem

After a short voting phase the results were announced, and tonights two winning songs were:

  • Helena Paparizou – Survivor
  • Linus Svenning – Bröder

Melodifestivalen is coming to an end next week with its ultimate final where an international jury and the Swedish public will decide who gets the Swedish ticket for the Eurovision Song Contest 2014. The line-up for the final is the following:
