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…

You can watch Andra Chansen live on SVT from 20:00 CET this evening. But before then be sure to review our poll results, the latest betting odds, and our interviews with the contestants on YouTube.

1. Kristin Amparo with “I See You” 380 votes, 19.3%

Duel-by-Duel

If we break the votes up by duels, this is how things stand.

Duel 1

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!

Duel 2

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!

Duel 3

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.

LA LA LA Dinah Nah! Break it down! #Mello #melfest #melodifestivalen Credit to the lovely @ilejn

Duel 4

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.

So far the results as expected. Both Andreas and Linus brought it (love that they changed the key so Linus can sing the high notes) so I wouldn’t mind either going through.

As for Hasse over Kristin, you can thank the home crowd for that. But despite that, I enjoyed Hasse’s AC performance over Kristin’s.

Kristin Amparo … she’s music not just cheap entertainment like almost everybody else here. But since people don’t follow these things with their ears plugged to their brains … craps follows through in a very classic Eurovision fashion.

I’m still not a fan of the producers choosing the duels because I think a weaker song can get through from a weaker duel and a stronger song will lose a stronger duel. You’ll see when voting comes out that there will be songs that got less votes that will go to final. The question is how many….

If Dinah will win tonight the duell and if she will win then the final next weekend, she will be my new number one in my top! This song has all: It is modern, powerfull and she is so amazing! But I think Sweden will chose an boring ballad :/

My duel winners are Linus, Kristin, Dinah Nah and Behrang & Victor, but since I know that I never agree with the swedish voters, the result will probably be the opposite. I’m quite sure Dolly Style and Samir & Viktor will qualify.

Linus and Dinah absolutely should win their duels. For the other duels I’m 50/50, based on my limited recollection of the songs. Probably I’d have an opinion if I bothered to listen to them all again.

for exmple hasse why you didnt like this song
this song is folk-Country In Swedish happy song
In contrast to Kristin Amparo with a boring song in English
(Sweden should try songs in Swedish)

Ellen, Molly, Andreas and Elize & Rickard and Caroline should’ve had an 2nd chance, therefore I won’t watch this… cause I think it’s ridiculous that these talents and amazing songs didn’t go through… If I had a choice for the show I would say Linus, cause in the 2nd show Linus and Mariette were my favorite…

At the end I hope Mariette will win! DEF NOT Eric Saade…. but oh heck 60th anniversary is a disaster already, so I wouldn’t be surprised if Eric Saade would actually go to Vienna.

The Wiwi poll has been quite steady in the prediction that Dolly Style vs. Dinah Nah will be the closest of the 4 duels; and I say again that the margin of victory could be less than 1,000 votes when they release the figures after MF is all said and done.

And Andreas over Linus at SVT?? Please tell me this is nothing more than a joke that won’t repeat itself tomorrow! We’ve had too many of those this entire week! 🙁

SVT public opinion polls favour the Dollies over Dinah, and Hasse Andersson over Kristin! Cheering for the Dollies! 😀 <3
