Sweden: SVT Announces Melodifestivalen 2012 Running Order

Officials at SVT have released the full running order for Melodifestivalen. The fourth semi-final looks most appetizing. Former Eurovision winner (and Donatella Versace look-a-like) Charlotte Perrelli opens up with a number called “The Girl.” (Is she talking about herself?) And muscle-bound blond boy toy Danny Saucedo closes the semi with “Amazing.” Oh yes it is!

A professional jury chose 16 of this year’s acts, supposedly representing the will of the Swedish people. SVT invited the remaining 16 acts to participate. Anyway, here’s the complete line-up:
