It’s hard to believe, but on Saturday we will have heard all the songs competing in Melodifestivalen 2017. Where does the time go? Semi-final 4 takes place at Skellefteå Kraft Arena in Skellefteå, which is more than half way up Sweden’s eastern coast. (You’re welcome).
Two out of seven acts will go straight to the final, where they’ll join the likes of Nano, Ace Wilder and Robin Bengtsson. Two will proceed to the Andra Chansen round and three will be sent home.
We’ve now had a chance to hear 60-second snippets of each song and our bloggers have already given their short reviews based on these samples. Now it’s your turn. Who do you think will qualify for the grand final? Who will get a second chance and who will pack their bags for good?
The poll results will be announced on 25 February, just before the show starts.
