What did we learn last night? That Melodifestivalen is, and always will be, unpredictable. Very few fans expected Ace Wilder to procceed straight to the final—even if she was wearing a lucky #7 on her chest. Nor did many anticipate that Shirley Clamp would finish sixth and be eliminated. All that drama explains why the afterparty rocked! People had to release some steam, y’all…

The winner of the show was Ace Wilder, who said: “I’m shocked! I feel great! At first I thought I would finish last.” She drank a lot of champagne and sprayed it everywhere….

So did Oscar Zia. Excited, surprised and overwhelmed, he thanked everyone who voted for him. “Thanks for all the support! It’s so fun!” he said. Then he headed backstage, to the hotel and then to the club, for an unforgetable night.

Outrigger, who managed to qualify for the Second Chance round, expressed their happiness and excitement, as their only goal was to move on to the next heat, regardless of whether it were the final or the Andra Chansen.

After the announcement of the results, State Of Drama said that they would celebrate harder than Outrigger. We’ll see who is still smiling when they meet again on March 1.

Dr. Alban and Jessica Folcker don’t feel sad, and they know that being eliminated from MF is not the end of the world. “We have a lot more to do as solo artists. The goal is not to hunt the Melodifestivalen, there are other things appart from it. We did the best we could and gave a spectacular performance.”

“I think the spectators of my age do not vote any more. It is the young teen now who determines the results. I trust myself, and keep the great feeling Melodifestivalen gave me during this week,” Shirley Clamp said.

I thought Shirley would get at least AC D: But then again, her presence was kind of boring. Most surprising results, but most underwhelming show. The content with the comedy sketches was better 😛

Even though I know she won’t win, I’m genuinely thrilled that Ace Wilder went straight to the Final. I’m really starting to get tired of the outdated ballads and awful Schlager pop songs (like Eurovision isn’t plagued enough with them), so having a song like “Busy Doin’ Nothin” and a quirky personality like Ace Wilder’s just makes it all exciting and fresh. The song itself is catchy, fun, and shouldn’t be taken too seriously. Enjoy it! I genuinely don’t understand the hype surrounding Helena Paparizou this year. No offence to Helena, but “Survivor” is just awful. As someone who has… Read more »

I’m with you on Sanna and Yohio, boring songs. But Helena’s is no better than theirs. Now goodbye.

And, as a Dane i can tell you that if you send Yohio or Sanna nielsen you won’t make it to the finals :)) you are in the beginning of the tough semi final, you need something outstanding with a strong song like Helena.

As a Swede, I can tell you that she won’t. You might want to pick someone else to obsess over.

I can’t wait to see your face when Helena doesn’t make the final.

None of the songs in the final are “bad” but most are missing vital elements of a good song. The only ones I really like are “Busy Doin’ Nothin'” and “Songbird”. Hopefully, Janet will be able to give us a better performance than last year and make the final too because I really like her as a singer. I know we haven’t heard the songs yet, but I swear if Alcazar makes the final……

They must change the rules of voting in semifinal. Not 100 % televote . Best choice 67 % from televote and 33 % from juries (10 people from town where is semi final and they must be in music), because we have teen melodifestivalen in future.
