If the latest odds are any indicator, then Anton Ewald and Alcazar will be advancing direct to the Final at Friends Arena. The seasoned veterans are out way in front of the rest of the pack although that could be a curse in disguise. In all three previous semi-finals one of the hot favourites has been relegated to Andra Chansen and missed out to a hot newcomer for a ticket direct to the Final. Josef Johansson and Linda Bengtzing might be in the AC spots now but it wouldn’t surprise anyone if one of them edges out Alcazar or Anton.

Alcazar last participated in Melodifestivalen in 2010 with ‘Headlines’ and Anton Ewald last competed at Melodifestivalen 2013 with his song ‘Begging’. It’d be almost unthinkable at this point for Ewald to miss out on a place in the final and repeat participants Alcazar also look a lock in with odds significantly ahead of third place Josef Johansson.

Örnsköldsvik will host the Fourth Semi-Final at the Fjällräven Center tomorrow night.

The odds mean nothing, and both Anton and Alcazar have terrible songs so I wouldn’t believe them. However, the teenage crowd will definitely vote for Anton, possibly putting him through, but I doubt they’d vote for Alcazar. I think Anton will qualify for the final, while a non-favourite will qualify for the final as well, while Alcazar and Linda/Janet will qualify for the AC. That isn’t what I necessarily want, but it’s what I think will happen.
