The fourth and last semi-final of Melodifestivalen 2015 rounded off what has been four up-and-down weeks of Swedish goodness. In the end, Måns Zelmerlöw and JTR proceeded direkt till final. Dinah Nah and Hasse Andersson had to settle for Andra Chansen where they will compete for four spots at the final of Melodifestivalen on March 14th.
Melodifestivalen fourth semi-final: Review
#Melfest Semi-Final 4 Winners
Måns Zelmerlöw – Heroes
Måns did what Charlotte Perrelli could not do and made a video screen come to life. Like…literally, he made that cute little guy in the picture with him come to life. “Heroes” stole the show and we are thinking that Måns has to be a hot favourite now to go to Vienna.
JTR – Building It Up
Boyband JTR probably had a lot of their thunder stolen from them when it turned out that Australia itself was competing in Vienna, but it didn’t stop them making it to the final! Sweden clearly has a preference to boy bands with three letter names: hey, EMD…
Andra Chansen Qualifiers
Dinah Nah – Make Me (La La La)
Dinah wants to make us “la la la” with her. Girl is fierce and her dancers even more so!
Hasse Andersson – Guild och gröna skogar
Hasse was adorable and we’d love him to be our granddad (though we have a slight suspicion he’s actually Santa Claus), which apparently was enough to get him through to Andra Chansen!
5TH PLACE: Caroline Wennergren – Black Swan
Caroline didn’t bring us the Brazilian flair that we might have hoped for. Black Swan didn’t take flight tonight and she’s sadly out of the competition.
6TH PLACE: Annika Herlitz – Ett andetag
We’re not sure if “Ett andetag” was actually the Swedish language version of “Let It Go” or not, but Annika certainly was playing to her fame and strengths with this performance. Unfortunately, the Swedish voters were happy to let her go out in sixth place…
7TH PLACE: Midnight Boy – Don’t Say No
No. Sorry, Midnight Boy, but that was the general feeling that we got from the Swedish voters and that’s what matters. Even with all of his jewellery and a topless body to kill for, this one was probably all too retro.
We now also know the eight acts we will be seeing in Andra Chansen next week: Dolly Style, Behrang Miri ft. Victor Crone, Linus Svenning, Samir & Victor, Andreas Weise, Kristin Amparo, Dinah Nah and Hasse Andersson. Who do you want to see make it through and join the eight finalists?
