National final season is all but done now for Eurovision 2015, so it’s fitting that this year’s final weekend features the jewel in the crown: Melodifestivalen. Sanna Nielsen and Robin Paulsson have guided us through five weeks of heats and Andra Chansen, all the way to tonight’s twelve-song final. Team Wiwi have been working tirelessly on the ground in Stockholm to keep you up to date with all the news, gossip and interviews ahead of the show tonight, which starts at 20:00 CET. For y’all who are out of the loop though, here’s a run down of what to expect and how to watch the show.

2. JTR, “Building It Up
3. Dinah Nah, “Make Me (La La La)
4. Jon Henrik Fjällgren, “Jag är fri (Manne Leam Frijje)

MELODIFESTIVALEN 2015 PREDICTIONS:

The overwhelming favourite to win at this point is Måns Zelmerlöw with his song, “Heroes“. Having won our readers poll, the Wiwi Jury and being the runaway favourite with the bookmakers, it’s hard to see past a victory for Måns right now. He has come close and fallen short before though and he certainly has some stiff competition this year.

Obviously, there’s Eurovision veteran Eric Saade to contend with. “Sting” is another infectious pop song much like “Popular” was and Eric’s popularity with his fanbase can never be denied. He is only the third favourite though: Måns’ closest rival is actually Swedish-Sami singer Jon Henrik Fjällgren, with his traditional joikJag är fri (Manne Leam Frijje)“. It’s hardly your typical Eurovision song and has divided many, but Jon Henrik delivers the song with such passion that it’s hard not to be captivated. Finally, Mariette remains an outside bet with “Don’t Stop Believing” in amongst the wealth of male talent at the top.

MELODIFESTIVALEN 2015 – HOW TO WATCH:

SVT have been as strong as ever at keeping the international audience involved with #Melfest, with high quality streams available for all six shows. Tonight’s final can be viewed on the SVT Play website from 20:00 CET, with the show set to last two hours.

You can keep up to date with the show live on our Twitter, Facebook and Instagram and of course you can find out all the results and reactions here on wiwibloggs. Who do y’all want to win Melodifestivalen 2015 – or who do you think will win? Let us know in the comments below!

Jesus Christ, Måns absolutely killed the jury vote.

So happy to see Eric so low with the juries 🙂

Mariette or Måns FTW!

After the jury vote, Mans won all but 2 (Israel and UK) of the countries!

So unless he loses the viewers votes by a big margin, this is his to lose.

Mariette for the win! (10/10)

Its a SONGcontest, Heroes is great, but not the best.
Really sounds like that track of david guetta.
What would Heroes be without the projection on the screen?
Then he would definitly be placed around 4-6 place.

Still Georgia is my favorite for now. Lets see what norway will do,

1. Cinderella (Rihanna style, would be great this year)
2. Human Beings (Were she at eurovision 2013 greenroom, with margaret?)
3. A monster like me (i like it so much…. but so many duets/boring ballads this year)

1. Mariette – Don’t Stop Believing (10/10)
2. Mans Zelmerlow – Heroes (9/10)
3. Dinna Nah – Make Me (la la la) (8/10)
4. Isa – Don’t Stop (7/10)
5. Jon Henrik Fjallgren – Jag ar fri (6/10)

This is between four singers: Måns, Jon Henrik, Mariette & Eric

I REALLY HOPE THAT MANS WINS!

And i really want that Dina Nah place as 1st runner up

If Mans wins he will be my favorite for Vienna and definitly is going to be rude, Italy, Israel, Spain, Estonia and now probably Sweden and Norway fighting for the top place

Mans and heroes h as the ability to win the whole competition in Austria though it would have stiff competition from Italy and Norway if they send monsters like me which I hope they do.

If Måns doesn’t win I’ll be extremely surprised. I’m hoping for Dinah Nah as a dark horse but I can’t see Måns being beaten by anyone, I guess it’s just his time to make it to ESC. Eric will have a similar fate as Yohio did on his second attempt last year and I can picture Isa, Dinah Nah, Mariette, and Jon Henrik all placing second. Magnus, Jessica, JTR, Linus, and Hasse all have no chance and will likely be in the bottom half.

Only 5 acts can be a good entry for me.
-Måns
-Mariette
-Dinah
-Jon Henrik
-Isa

The rest have bad and intoxicatingly bad songs (yes, including Eric Saade because of the most intoxicatingly bad lyrics).
