“In the Club” lyrics — Danny Saucedo Melodifestivalen 2011
You’ve seen our picks for Melodifestivalen semi-finals one and two. Now we turn our ears to the third semi-final.
Wiwi and his new deputy editor Vebooboo have already given you a taste of Melodifestivalen semi-final #1. Now we’re turning to the second semi-final—and more importantly feasting our eyes on everyone’s favorite manboy Eric Saade. Mmmm. Here we go.
Having been disqualified for the premature public release of his original song, Anders Fernette has been re-entered into the fourth semi-final of this year’s Melodifestivalen after submitting another single.

With the 32 songs not yet released, it’s impossible to predict who will win Melodifestivalen 2011 just yet. But fear not: Wiwi and Veboo shall provide! Over the next few days we’ll be uploading the lists of key contestants to watch out for in each of the four semifinals.
A new logo isn’t the only thing that has changed ahead of this year’s Melodifestivalen, Sweden’s qualification competition for Eurovision. After an embarrassingly poor performance at last year’s ESC, Melodifestivalen’s organisers have drastically changed the selection process for the Swedish competition’s 32 entries in an effort to increase the eventual winner’s chances for European success.
Last May Sweden was knocked out during the semi-finals for the first time in its storied Eurovision history. But with the announcement of the first four contestants for Melodifestivalen 2011, its national selection contest, Sweden is dusting itself off and hopping back on the Eurotrash saddle.
After Anna Bergendahl became the first Swedish contestant to ever be eliminated during the semi-finals of Eurovision, she consoled herself by trashing Dutch contestant Sieneke. Then she released an album entitled Yours Sincerely.
