The first Semi-Final of Melodifestivalen has now taken place, with the first seven acts performing live from Stockholm.
The format of the competitions remains the same as previous years, with two acts selected to qualify directly to the final, while two acts are selected for the second chance ‘Andra Chansen’ round. This means we say goodbye to three of the acts.
Here are the competitors:
- Kadiatou – One Touch
- Lillasyster – Pretender
- Jessica Andersson – Horizon
- Paul Rey – The Missing Piece
- Arvingarna – Tänker Inte Alls Gå Hem
- Nathalie Brydolf – Fingerprints
- Danny Saucedo – Dandi Dansa
Finishing in the top two, and qualifying directly to the final were Danny Saucedo and Arvingarna. The artists going to the second chance round are Lillasyster and Paul Rey.
This means that the journey ends for Kadiatou, Jessica Andersson and Nathalie Brydolf.
Stay tuned until next week where we will see the next 7 artists take to the stage!
