After weeks of waiting, we finally got our first taste of the Melodifestivalen 2016 songs. Today seven artists from the first semifinal gathered in Gothenburg for their first rehearsals and SVT treated us to 30-second snippets of each performance. We saw Samir & Viktor strip off their shirts for an on-stage shower, Ace Wilder got slinky with some amazing choreography and Anna Book busted out a turbo-charged wind machine — only to be disqualified a few hours later.
We had our say on the rehearsals already — you can read our reviews here and watch our video reaction below. But now it’s your turn. Who do you think had the best first rehearsal today? Which two acts should advance direct to the final and which two should get a second chance? Vote in our poll for your favourites. You can vote for as many songs as you would like, but you can only vote ONE time. Simply check the box next to each act you want to support before pressing submit. We will review the results on Saturday, ahead of Semi-Final 1.
