Wiwi Jury: Melodifestivalen 2017 reviews and rankings


The Wiwi Jury is heading to Sweden to review and rate the 12 finalists competing in Melodifestivalen 2017, as well as the eight songs who’ll be battling it out for one of four spots in the final via the andra chansen round. With Sweden eyeing up the record of seven Eurovision wins, the pressure is on to pick the perfect song for Kyiv.

The jury hails from Australia, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Finland, Georgia, Iceland, Ireland, Israel, Portugal, Malta, Morocco, New Zealand, Russia, Serbia, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, the United Kingdom and the United States.

Each juror assesses each song independently, and awards each song a score from 0 to 10. Before calculating the Wiwi Jury verdict, we drop the highest and lowest scores to reduce potential bias and outliers.

We’ll be unrolling these one by one over the coming weeks. You can read the completed reviews by clicking on the song title.
