Hej Sverige! Melodifestivalen 2017 kicks off this Saturday with the first semi-final in Gothenburg. Seven acts will sing for two places in the grand final and two places in the Andra Chansen round. The show will be hosted by Melodifestivalen stars David Lindgren and Hasse Andersson along with comedian Clara Henry.
The first semi-final is packed with big stars as well as some interesting newcomers. Eurovision winner Charlotte Perrelli is coming back to Melodifestivalen, but the song is said to be much different from her previous entries.
Boris René will make a return for his second year after reaching tenth place in the Melfest final last year. Two-time finalist Ace Wilder will sing “Wild Child” this year and Dinah Nah, who sang “Make Me (La La La)” in 2015, will also return to the contest.
But which deltävling 1 act are you most excited for? Vote in our poll! You can vote for your favourites by simply checking to box next to their name and click “vote”. We will close the poll on Thursday, February 2, when we will hear the first clips of the competing songs.
