Melodifestivalen 2017: Who should win semi-final 1 in Gothenburg?

Seven songs, three debutants, four returnees but only two acts advancing direct to the final. It’s game on at Melodifestivalen 2017!

On Thursday, Swedish broadcaster SVT finally shared a sneak peak of the acts competing to sing for Sweden at Eurovision. As in previous years producers shared 30-second rehearsal clips. But this year — and for the first time ever — they also shared one-minute cuts of the studio versions of each song. In the past they’ve waited until Saturday.

In addition to determining two finalists, Saturday’s heat in Gothenburg will also result in two acts heading to the Andra Chansen (or Second Chance round). The remaining three acts will be left in the cold. Dreams crushed. But iTunes release on!

We’ve already debated the merits of each entry in our Semi-Final 1 preview video, which you can watch below. But we want to know: Who are your favourites to win based on the first set of clips? You can vote for as many of your favourite(s) as you want, but you can only vote one time. Be sure to click the box next to each of your favourites before pressing submit.
