Tonight Melodifestivalen moves on to Örnsköldsvik, where the final seven acts of the competition will take to the stage and fight it out at the Fjällräven Center. Two of the Semi-Final 4 acts will go direkt til final, two to the duels of Andra Chansen in one week’s time and three unlucky acts will end their Melodifestivalen 2018 experience in Örnsköldsvik tonight. 

On Thursday we asked who you think should win the semi-final and you gave a resounding result. Almost 60% of our readers think Mariette should win the semi-final – “For You” won 502 votes, or 57% of all cast. Mariette was also the act you were most excited for before hearing the songs.

Felix Sandman came in second. He’s improved on his position in the excited poll, capturing 197 votes, or 23% of the total cast, with his ballad “Every Single Day”.

The field thereafter widens, with only musical theatre star Emmi Christensson breaking into double figures, winning 10% of votes cast.

The other act are readers think should make Andra Chansen is Olivia Eliasson. She made it into fourth with 5% of all votes cast.

That would make the three eliminated acts Elias Abbas (3%), Rolandz (2%) and Felicia Olsson (1%).

WHO SHOULD WIN MELODIFESTIVALEN 2018 SEMI-FINAL 4 RESULTS:

  1. Mariette – “For You” 502 (57%)
  2. Felix Sandman – “Every Single Day” 197 (23%)
  3. Emmi Christensson – “Icarus” 84 (10%)
  4. Olivia Eliasson – “Never Learn” 43 (5%)
  5. Elias Abbas – “Mitt paradis” 26 (3%)
  6. Rolandz – “Fuldans” 14 (2%)
  7. Felicia Olsson- “Break That Chain” 9 (1%)

You’ll be able to watch MelodifestivalenSemi-Final 4 live on SVT1 2018 from 20:00CET.

The next stop for the competition is Andra Chansen where Sigrid BernsonRenaidaMimi WernerMargaretMonchoMendéz and two of tonight’s acts will duel it out to make the final. The duels pair one song that finished third in it’s heat, against a song that finished fourth in another heat, so the duel pairings should give some preliminary insight into which acts are more popular than others.

I think Mariette will go to A.C. However, I’d love to see her directly in the final! She’s so great!

She should go home and think of the disposable songs that she’s been serving.

Rooting for Elias here. Overall Liamoo is way ahead of everything else this year.

So, yeah, apparently, it really does not get better. After listening to the two and half minutes versions of Mariette’s and Sandman’s songs, I’m out. How did Liamoo’s song sound again? I think I’ll be rooting for that one.

Marionette needs to smash this to ensure that streak of piss Benjamin stays away from Lisbon

Totally agree.

Disagree..!!!! What kind of negativity is this?! The can both go for all I care, both credible artists and judging on the short clip of For You, both very good.. To call Benjamin what u just did is pathetic.. #RollingMyEyes

Don’t agree with the expression, either. Just agreeing that I don’t want him to win.

She is entitled to her opinion. I think it is rude to roll your eyes at her. I think you are both wasting time arguing over Sweden this year anyway.

Everyone can agree that this is the worst melodifestivalen in 10 years.

I have a feeling Rolandz will sneak through. It is a Swedish thing. Sandman has the best song but we don’t want it in MF. It is to dark and moody . It don’t fit the festival atmosphere. We appriciate it and we will listen and stream it but we don’t want it on stage. Hopefully I will be wrong though::

I will watch the performances of Mariette and Mr. Sandman because there’s still hope that the full version of their songs makes an impact.

People are only voting for Mariette because of her name. She won’t win Melfest this year. Ingrosso Vs LIAMOO.
