There’s only four days left until the Melodifestivalen 2016 madness kicks off with the first deltävling in Gothenburg. Seven artists will compete in this first semi-final: two will qualify direkt till final on March 13, another two will be relegated to andra chansen (the Second Chance round) and three of them will get sent home for good. Sweden’s Melfest is a risky business…

But which of the first seven acts are you looking forward to the most? We may not have their songs, but we have tonnes of hype and more than a few glittering CVs. After placing eighth last year with “Groupie“, Samir & Viktor want to go a few better with “Bada nakna.” And 2014 breakout star Ace Wilder will hope to improve upon her second-place song “Busy Doin’ Nothin’” and take the crown.

Let us know your faves by voting in our poll below. You can vote for as many artists as you would like, but you can only vote one time. Be sure to click the box next to each act you want to support before pressing submit. We will close the poll and go through the results before Thursday February 4, when we will hear the first clips of all seven songs.

But I think Mimi Werner will surprise us all, and be like Barei.

Judging by the title of the song by Samir & Viktor it will be similar to Army of Lovers – “Rockin’ The Ride”.

Need to hear their songs before I decide who deserves to advance…but judging by the hype, it’ll be AW and S&V. But, hey, let’s hear them sing first…so many were raving about Eric Saade, and we know what happened to him in the final! 😀

If Ace Wilder would had sent Copenhagen in 2014, Sweden could literally be the Ireland of 2010s.

Also Arisa of Italy that year, with an amazing song wasted. Now these two ladies had returned their national selections. I hope all the best! I hope Ace will win Melodifestivalen this year. Please no Molly Sandén.

Pernilla’s last entry was lovely, and I also liked Ace’s “Busy Doin’ Nothin'”, so I’d say those two and Mimi Werner, as I’m pretty curious about her song. 🙂

I’m excited for no one. Ace is overrated and the rest i just have no interest.

Is this even a question. Of course Ace.
