Melodifestivalen: SVT releases full voting results for all shows

35

They’ve been kept a secret over the past six weeks. Now Swedish broadcaster SVT has revealed the full voting results for all six Melodifestivalen 2017 shows. And there are a few surprises in the numbers.

The Melodifestivalen results includes a full breakdown of the two rounds of voting in each of the semi-finals. The first round is determined by app and televotes, after which the two lowest scoring acts are eliminated. The voting then continues with televote only. And sometimes this second round can make all the difference.

Owe Thörnqvist was ranked only fourth after the first round of voting. He received a record 158,074 votes in the second round — which put him in second place with a total of 961,526 votes.

Also earning over 100,000 votes on the second round of voting were Nano (122,263), Jon Henrik & Aninia (101,324) and Loreen (104,230)

Roger Pontare was also ranked fourth after the first round, but things took a different turn for him. At that stage he was just over 12,700 votes ahead of Dismissed. The glam rock band overtook him in the second round of voting and secured their place in Andra Chansen.

Despite winning his semi-final (and the grand final), Robin Bengtsson did not top the voting in the semi-finals. In fact, there were six other acts who earned a higher score in their semi-final. NanoMarietteWiktoriaAce WilderBenjamin Ingrosso and Lisa Ajax all topped his score of 1,031,479.

The closest Andra Chansen duel was between Lisa Ajax and Axel Schylström. There was just 5752 votes between them, with Lisa narrowly taking 50.15% of the vote.

Andra Chansen duel partners Loreen and Anton Hagman had scored remarkably closely in their respective semi-finals. Anton had earned 880,640 in his semi-final, slightly ahead of Loreen with 872,651 in her semi-final. But Anton was the only fourth-placed semi-finalist to win his duel — and Loreen was the only third placed semi-finalist to lose hers.

The televote scores from the grand final just confirm how close the public vote was. While Nano was the clear televote favourite, little more than 38,000 votes separated Wiktoria and Robin Bengtsson in second and third places.
