We’re half-way through the semifinals of Melodifestivalen 2017. And this week seven more artists — two returnees and a series of debutants — welcome us in to the final stretch during Semi-Final 3 in Växjö. Two of the seven artists will join Nano, Ace Wilder, Mariette and Benjamin Ingrosso in the final. Two more will get a second chance to impress the Swedish public and make their way to the final through andra chansen.
But who should win this week’s semi-final? Yesterday we saw small clips of the artists rehearsing their acts at the Vida Arena and heard the first 60 seconds of each songs. As ever there is variety musically — from contemporary EDM to soul to 1940s boogie-woogie — and visually — from men in leather jackets to to rising, spaceship-like platforms.
Now it’s time to sound off on all the action. Who are your favourites based on these small snippets? You can let us know in our poll below by checking the box next to your favourite(s) and then pressing vote. We will go through the results tomorrow, February 18, before the show starts.
