Today is the day! Europe’s biggest national selection Melodifestivalen 2016 kicks off with the first semifinal, live from Gothenburg’s Scandinavium. After Anna Book’s disqualification, just six artists will sing for two places in the final and two spots in the andra chansen round.
On Thursday we got the first taste of all the songs, when SVT released 30-second-long clips of all the songs. You can read our reviews of all the clips here. Today we are finally hearing the almost full versions of the competing songs. For the remaining 30 seconds you have to watch tonight’s show!
