From Malmö in the south, we move to Norrköping in the east for the third semi-final of Melodifestivalen 2016. As in the past two weeks, seven artists will sing for two spots in the final and two in the andra chansen round.
Semi-final 3 is another great mix of Melodifestivalen returnees and newcomers. Among the debutants are Swedish Idol winner Lisa Ajax and SMILO, who won a place at Melodifestivalen through the Svensktoppen nästa competition. The veterans are Swingfly, After Dark and Oscar Zia — each of whom has made it to the final in the past. We’re particularly keen to see Oscar, who, as you can see below, learned how to say our web site’s name back in 2014. Gotta love him!
But which artist are you most excited for? Let us know by voting in our poll below. You can vote for as many artists as you would like, but you can only vote one time. Be sure to click the box next to each act you want to support before pressing submit. We will close the poll and go through the results before the first snippets of the songs are revealed on Thursday.
