Margaret’s toilet has been flushed, Samir & Viktor are making us shuffle and that’s just the start of it. Tonight’s second semi-final of Melodifestivalen 2018 brings us a number of returning faces and a whole load of musical styles as well.
With just a few hours to go before the show kicks off at 20:00 CET, we can now hear more from all of the songs. As always, SVT has published 2.30 minute snippets of each song. Could these nearly-complete versions change some minds ahead of the show?
You can find links to all the snippets below. Simply click on the song title for each artist to be sent to the clip on SVT Play.
Melodifestivalen 2018: Semi-Final Two Snippets
- Samir & Viktor — “Shuffla”
- Ida Redig — “Allting som vi sa”
- Jonas Gardell — “Det finns en väg”
- Margaret — “In My Cabana”
- Stiko Per Larsson — “Titta vi flyger”
- Mimi Werner — “Songburning”
- LIAMOO — “Last Breath”
There was some native language love going on in last night’s audience poll. Samir & Viktor topped the rankings with their Swedish “Shuffla”, ahead of Idol winner, LIAMOO. The Andra Chansen spots would be set to go to Margaret and Mimi Werner.
Our readers poll, however, places Margaret as the winner. Samir & Viktor would have to settle for second place, whilst LIAMOO and Mimi take 3rd and 4th. Is it bad news for Ida, Jonas & Stiko, who don’t feature in either polls top four?
You can hear all the songs in full tonight when the second semi-final of Melodifestivalen 2018 goes live. You can watch on SVT Play from 20:00 CET, with David Lindgren once again hosting.
