Five days ago we asked our readers to vote for their favourite acts competing in Andra Chansen — the Second Chance round of Melodifestivalen 2015. After counting 1,969 votes, we can now reveal that our readers most want Colombian-born Kristin Amparo to advance with her song “I See You”, followed by Linus Svenning with “Forever Starts Today.” And while they have y’all aroused, Andreas Weise and Hasse Andersson have you feeling a bit limp. Together they could only muster 185 votes — that’s less than half what Kristin earned on her own…

If we break the votes up by duels, this is how things stand.
For the second year in a row, Linus Svenning looks poised to advance from Andra Chansen to the final. He earned 368 votes, while his competitor Andreas Weise only brought in 126. The bookies think this will be the closest duel, but our readers obviously don’t see it that way.
During rehearsals last night, Linus was once again working the flames, while Andreas relied on sparks. Two men, so many pretty lights!

Kristin Amparo slays Hasse Andersson. She’s on top of our poll with 380 votes to his 59. Less of a contest, more of a walkover.
Last night during the dress rehearsal, you could really see the contrast in style and colour. Kristin is sombre in black. Hasse is cheery in green and gold. Let’s comapre!
Hasse has a very colourful performance. It grows on you! #melfest #Mello @ilejn A photo posted by wiwibloggs (@wiwibloggs) on
Our readers give Dinah Nah a slight edge. She earned 335 votes to Dolly Style’s 311. Whose song is better, and whose hair dye will withstand all those stage lights the best? We’ll find out tonight!
During rehearsals Dinah Nah had a bit more energy in her dance moves than in her heat, and Dolly Style seemed to have ordered extra confetti. This is the view we had in the arena.
No shortage of confetti for @dollystyleofficial at their #melfest rehearsal #Mello. @ilejn got it in her hair no doubt! A photo posted by wiwibloggs (@wiwibloggs) on
The bookies have Samir & Viktor down as the heavy favourites here, and our readers confirm that. The reality-tv-star and his fashion-blogger sidekick earned 263 votes, to Behrang Miri and Victor Crone‘s 127.
During last night’s rehearsals Viktor seemed to hit all his camera angles (and was generally a lot less spacey). Behrang and Victor wheeled in Eurovision 2009 singer and Swedish opera star Malena Ernman to hold a high note. And boy did she! Here’s how we saw it.
