Andra Chansen takes place next week on 7th March and SVT have just released the running order. Eight Melodifestivalen 2015 acts will compete for spots at the final of Melodifestivalen on 14th March in Stockholm. Unlike previous years however, Andra Chansen will produce four finalists and the duels will be sudden death

Duel One: Andreas Weise v. Linus Svenning

Andra Chansen will open with a duel between returning act Linus Svenning and disco-pop crooner Andreas Weise. It seems SVT want to fight fire with fire. Pyrotechnics aside though, there is some serious male vocal talent on show here. Linus has emotional depth and Andreas has serious power behind him. This duel is too tough to call. Linus did make it out of Andra Chansen last year but ‘Bring Out The Fire’ is hella catchy. It also has disco glam and Linus has…trashcans.

VERDICT: Too close to call!


Duel 2: Hasse Andersson v. Kristin Amparo

Hasse might be charming but the song is anything but. Kristin’s song might be totes Adele but at least she makes it work and delivers something you can actually get on board with. Big voice, muted visuals and emotive delivery give ‘I See You’ a weight that the jaunty country twangs of ‘Guld och gröna skogar’ is never going to deliver to you. Hasse was a shock qualifier to Andra Chansen but it seems dubious he’ll be a shocker qualifier to the Melodifestivalen final.

VERDICT: I see Kristin Amparo going direkt till final.


Duel 3: Dolly Style v. Dinah Nah

It is a bad sign when the dance breakdown is the best part of your song. ‘Make Me (La La La)’ struggles to get ground clearance from dance banger territory. ‘Hello, Hi’ on the other hand is instantly memorable and the Dollies probably more than any other act at Andra Chansen this year, stand out for all the right reasons. Their song is catchy, the choreography is fun and Dolly Style turned it out at their Semi-Final overcoming serious competition in the process.

VERDICT: Hello, Hi to Dolly Style at the Melodifestivalen final!

Duel 4: Behrang Miri feat. Victor Crone v. Samir & Viktor

People were shocked when Behrang made it to  Andra Chansen and the four weeks since Deltävling 1 haven’t changed any opinions on that score. ‘Det rår vi inte för’ is cringeworthy through and through. Victor also totally upstages Behrang with the killer guest vocal which is not ideal in a featured artist. Samir & Viktor on the other hand have a contemporary edge and swag about them. They might lack the choreographed polish of other acts, but they are endearing and ‘Groupie’ is inescapably fun.

VERDICT: Samir & Viktor dirket till final!

If it were up to me then the qualifiers would be: Dual 1 – WINNER: Linus Svenning (Andreas’ song is kinda cheap) Dual 2 – WINNER: Kristin Amparo (Kristin is the second best of all the 28 competetors this year, and Hasse is number 28 and worst so….) Dual 3 – WINNER: Dinah Nah (Dolly Style just got a lot of voice because of their image, Dinah Nah actually has something one might call a song) Dual 4 – WINNER: Samir & Viktor (I like both here, but S&V send out so much happiness that I can’t pick the other… Read more »

Only 2 decent songs for me in this bunch by Kristin and Dinah and 4 really awful songs by Linus, Hasse, Dolly Style and Behrang & Co.
If I were to put my cynical Melfest hat on, and this is the order they are singing in, my guess is that SVT wants all the 2nd songs in each duel to go through. So perhaps the SVT favoured songs for the final are :-
1 – Linus
2 – Kristin
3 – Dinah
4 – Samir & Victor

Who I want to proceed: Duel 1: Linus Svenning Duel 2: Kristin Amparo Duel 3: Dinah Nah Duel 4: Behrang Miri Who I think will proceed: Duel 1: Linus Svenning (I think it’s almost obvious, but I don’t exclude Sweden shocking us again) Duel 2: Kristin Amparo (Same thing) Duel 3: Dolly Style (This is a tricky one, I don’t think that the result is for sure, but I think that the dolls will sail through) Duel 4: Samir & Viktor (Almost certain about this, even though I really dislike it) My favorites from the Andra Chansen were Kristin Amparo,… Read more »

1: Andreas (I like Andreas’ and Linus’ songs but I think Andreas’ song is better. Linus already performed in the final last year too – let other people have a shot 🙂 )

2: Kristin (Gut instinct for Kristin although Hasse’s song is not that bad after a few listens.)

3. Dinah (GOD PLEASE LET DINAH PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE NOT DOLLY STYLE PLEASE)

4. Samir & Viktor (Behrang Miri and the other guy’s song is just eew.)

Duel 1 to Linus (easier than you think)
Duel 2 to Kristin (in a runaway, I expect)
Duel 3 to Dolly Style (in a squeaker, probably the one to watch)
Duel 4 to Samir and Viktor (probably tougher to call than I think).

I don’t know, I kinda liked how Andra Chansen used to be until last year, it was more exciting that way, with a first round of votes and then the duels. On the other hand, this system will give us 4 finalists instead of just 2, so I guess that compensates it.

I want Linus and Dolly Style in the final!

I’m betting on Linus, Kristen, Dollys, and Behrang to the final.
But who knows, we might be in for some surprises.

Wiwi, if you’re reading this:

– your website is causing lot of problems to every browser from which I open articles and read. There is lot of unused space to the right of the webpage (white, lots of white). I suggest you to change the layout of your website.

Praying for Linus to get through. Would love Dinah to get through as well, although I love Dolly Style too, so it’s a win/win there. Don’t care too much for the other two duels, sadly…

Knowing you Wiwi, as a whole, all your predictions will fail. 🙂

– Andreas Weisse
– Dinah Nah
– That “old grandpa”
– Victor & Behrang

I’ll say “told you so” next Saturday. Cheers.

Dina Nah is already number 16 in the iTunes Sweden Top 100 Download Charts. I think she could have a huge hit on her hands, potential No.1? I think so?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hY7Vl6B-kTg

Måns Zelmerlöw is number 29 at the moment, JTR are not even in the Top 100. It will be interesting to see how this develops over the next few days.

1. Andreas
2. Kristin
3. Dina (But i want to see the Dollys in the final too u.u)
4. Samir & Viktor

But what I really want its too kick out of the final to the One Direction/5SOS/(Insert any other silly boyband here) wannabes of JTR, DINA DESERVE THAT SPOT IN THE FINAL, No those idiots teenager, i was hoping At least a catchy song from them but they are the opposite totally bland and meh song

My (personal) vote:
Linus, Kristin (even though the old man has a nice folksy song), Dinah Nah, and Samir & Viktor (I really dont care about this last set).

One by One should at least be here. Still disappointed by the first semi.

Wait…can someone explain..were the duals randomly drawn or did Christer set them up? I think it would be unfair to have duals set up where you can ensure qualifiers based on already seeing how many votes they got for the semi. Also while you might not win your duel you might beat the 6 other songs in the other duel which would be unfair.

Linus, Kristin and Samir & Viktor are a lock for me, the duel between Dina and Dolly Style is going to be the closest, it could go either way, but I’d prefer Dina.
