Last Saturday we had a tough time choosing between four national selections, but this week we have even more difficult choices. This evening seven countries — Denmark, Sweden, Iceland, Finland, Estonia, Lithuania and Hungary — are vying for our attention with Eurovision selections. Will you look north to Melfest or turn east to Eesti Laul? Do you have Dansk Melodi Grand prix on the mind, or are you craving some Finnish UMK action? To help you make an informed decision, we’re linking our relevant reviews, polls and assorted coverage below. You will also find the links to watch all the shows live.

DENMARK: DANSK MELODI GRAND PRIX FINAL

DMGP 2015 DR

We’re always excited to see who will get a ticket to Vienna. Tonight the host of last year’s contest, Denmark, will choose Basim’s successor. Ten songs have made the cut and you can watch all of them here. Former Junior Eurovision contestant Anne Gadegaard will sing “Suitcase” and we think she may need to go ahead and pack for Vienna. She finished first in both our readers’ poll and with the Wiwi Jury.

The show will start exactly at 20:00 CET, so be sure to have your confetti and party favours ready!

Live stream: here.

SWEDEN: MELODIFESTIVALEN SEMI-FINAL ONE

melodifestivalen-generic-logo1

Sweden’s Melodifestivalen is the highlight of national selection season, and tonight it kicks off with the first semi-final. Seven acts will perform, but only two of them will proceed direct to the Final, while two others will survive and reach the Second Chance round. We are looking forward to seeing Eric Saade return, even if our readers are totally divided after watching a 30-second clip (and even if we find the lyrics kind of cringe). You can watch Melodifestivalen at  20:00 CET.

Live stream: here.

ICELAND: SONGVAKEPPNIN SEMI-FINAL TWO

Review the songs and vote for your favourite here. The show will take place tonight at 20:45 CET.

Hi there, There’s no doubt that your site could possibly be having web browser compatibility problems.
Whenever I take a look at your web site in Safari, it looks fine however, if opening in IE, it’s got some overlapping issues.
I simply wanted to give you a quick heads up!
Other than that, great blog!

And I’ve been supporting Monika all the way since the 2nd week of Lithuania’s national selection shows!

Calvin, SVT usually puts the link for Melodifestivalen an hour before the show starts, accompanied with their own countdown timer.

Anthony – Haha good. Being half Lithuanian I always feel guilty I don’t pay more attention to them and that they always have such terrible songs. But with Monika they can see the final again and maybe even do well

@Calvin: svtplay.se/melodifestivalen usually works for me, and I’m not in Sweden.

I’m watching Finland and Sweden, and I’ll try to check in on Fool Moon and Kati Wolf when they sing for Hungary. Not a big fan of Denmark’s songs overall, Lithuania’s selection is just ridiculous again, and Iceland/Estonia I just haven’t been paying attention to really.

I’ll do the same thing Thiefo says. Can’t wait to see who gets chosen in Denmark. If it’s Anti Social Media like bookies predict, then I’ll have a new least favorite…

Wait – is the MelFest link geo-blocked?

I think I’ll go with DMGP, the good thing about Melodifestivalen is that the shows are instantly available to watch online after they aired live, so right after I finish with Denmark I’ll go to Sweden to watch the first semi final, before I get spoiled 😛

I’m also excited for Iceland and Hungary, but I simply can’t watch all of them!
