Seven artists will sing for two places in the final and two in Andra Chansen today in the third semifinal of Melodifestivalen 2016 takes in Norrköping. Our readers said Oscar Zia had the best first rehearsal and should win the heat, but will the full songs change your opinion? You don’t have to wait until the evening to hear them, as SVT once again gave us the almost full versions of the songs. So turn the volume up!

Be aware that these videos will no longer be available after tonight’s semifinal due the Melodifestivalen rules.

I thought Swingfly will be better, but it was second Kizugungu.

We just can not convince ourselves that everything is possible, because this is not true. You need to have some basics in life, to existence of order instead of chaos. The winner is always only one.

By far the strongest heat for me. Swingfly, Boris, and Oskar are my top three in no particular order, probably After Dark 4th. Of course the actual results will be the opposite 😉

Still no song I’ve fallen in love with but the standard of Melfest has been appalling so far so it’s nice to see a bit of an uptick.

Many idiots think that Margaret will win Eurovision for Poland, but the true is that she has no chance in polish selections against Micha? Szpak (Starling). Pleace, accept it! Poland is not Spain, we will not choose similar crap to Barei!

Some people speak about originality. That it is somewhat a key for winning ESC? But when has something original won the contest? Not lately. All you need is a song that is good enough and a good rememberable stage performance. That’s what I think.

1. Oscar (One of the favorites to win MF)
2. Lisa (Lisa or Boris will go DTF, just one of them)
3. Saraha (Please Sweden don’t vote this out!)
4. Boris (Australia 2015, but much better)
5. After dark (Amazing show xD)
6. Those 2 people singing… (6th or 5th, no chanche)
7. Smilo (No doubt this will become 7th)

In the dress rehearsal vote, SaRaha won so I think that’s saying a lot.
My Prediction:
1) Oscar Zia
2) SaRaha
3) Lisa Ajax
4) Swingfly feat. Helena Gutarra
5) Boris Rene
6) After Dark
7) Smilo (Svensktoppen nästa acts never do well)

Usual formula, another weak heat with nothing too original or special really. Lisa’s song is by the “Heroes” team and decent enough, the rest are pretty poor. I would go :-

To final :- Lisa and Oscar

To A/C :- Boris and Swingfly (Does it really matter with Isa and Molly PH already there?)

Out :- Saraha, After Dark and Smilo

OK, here’s how I think It should go:

DTF: After Dark, SMILO
AC: Boris Rene, Oscar Zia

People may question my choice of SMILO to go direkt till finalen, but I think the song is quality and there’s a reason that they’re here – they won one of the preliminary competitions to get to this stage. This is a substantial song.
