It is now that time of the week where we can listen to the snippets of the songs participating in the Melodifestivalen semi-finals, with this week marking the second of four semi-finals. The semi-final will take place on February 8th in Gothenburg.
Thorsten Flinck was originally part of the line-up, however due to a current criminal investigation, he was replaced by Jan Johansen. Jan will perform the song that Thorsten was intending on singing, Miraklernas tid. Jan Johansen has participated in Melodifestivalen four times, and represented Sweden at Eurovision back in 1995.
Here is the line-up:
- Klara Hammarström – “Nobody”
- Jan Johansen – “Miraklernas tid”
- Dotter – “Bulletproof”
- Mendez feat. Alvaro Estrella – “Vamos amigos”
- Linda Bengtzing – “Alla mina sorger”
- Paul Rey – “Talking in My Sleep”
- Anna Bergendahl – “Kingdom Come”
One minute snippets of the songs are available to listen to here.
Two songs from this semi-final will qualify directly to the final, while two will continue to the second chance round (Andra Chansen) which will take place on February 29th while the final will take place in Stockholm on March 7th.
