The Wiwi Jury—our in-house panel of music unprofessionals—has now reviewed all 10 Melodifestivalen finalists, and Ralf Gyllenhammar has come out on top.
The “Bed on Fire” singer set our hearts alight with his soulful performance, which involves a lot of kerosene and a burning piano. He received an average rating of 7.4/10. That put him ahead of runner-up Ulrik Munther who averaged 7.1 for his number “Tell the World I’m Here”.
Gender bender YOHIO tied with David Lindgren with a score of 6.6, but YOHIO wins the third-place tiebreak because more jurors ranked him higher than David.
Interestingly, Ralf finished second in our fan poll behind YOHIO. If our predictions are any indicator, then tonight will be a two-horse race between the man with the piano and the boy with the pink sequins.
Do you think that Ralf has a chance to win this evening? Who do you think that the professional jury will go for? And what about the public? Let us know below!
