Seven songs, three debutants, four returnees but only two acts advancing direct to the final. It’s game on at Melodifestivalen 2017!

On Thursday, Swedish broadcaster SVT finally shared a sneak peak of the acts competing to sing for Sweden at Eurovision. As in previous years producers shared 30-second rehearsal clips. But this year — and for the first time ever — they also shared one-minute cuts of the studio versions of each song. In the past they’ve waited until Saturday.

In addition to determining two finalists, Saturday’s heat in Gothenburg will also result in two acts heading to the Andra Chansen (or Second Chance round). The remaining three acts will be left in the cold. Dreams crushed. But iTunes release on!

We’ve already debated the merits of each entry in our Semi-Final 1 preview video, which you can watch below. But we want to know: Who are your favourites to win based on the first set of clips? You can vote for as many of your favourite(s) as you want, but you can only vote one time. Be sure to click the box next to each of your favourites before pressing submit.

My favorites are Adrijana, Nano, Ace, and Boris, but I predict Ace and Nano will go to the final and Boris and Dinah/De Vet Du will go to andra chansen. I don’t think Charlotte or Adrijana have a chance.

According to a poll on SVT Nano is the favourite to win followed by Ace Wilder. Not surprising really!

In my opinion, Ace WIlder and Nano will go directly to final, while Charlotte Perrelli and De Vet Du will go to Andra Chansen. I believe Dinah Nah will end up 5th, while Boris and Adrijana would be eliminated first.

1) Ace Wilder : Icona Pop and Little Mix remix. I love it, for me her best entry! Gonna vote for this girl. Its a radio friendly pop hit. Its also really inspirational too. <3
2) Nano : Rag 'N Bone Man vibes. Needs to be in the final! Good chance of winning. Radio friendly pop song. 😉
3) Adrijana
4) Boris René
5) De Vet Du
6) Dinah Nah
7) Charlotte

Dinah Nah is my absolute favourite. Nano and Adrijana are also great, Ace is fine….the rest just aren’t good.

The girls have it for me,

Ace and Dinah – Final

Charlotte and Adrijana – Second Chance

I like De Vet Du so I wouldn’t mind if they make it.

I don’t see the love for Nano? its a rip of from any male vocalist with a husky voice e.g. Hungary 2016
I feel sorry for boris 2016 fab 2017 drab

Ace Wilder will pass with flying colours, even though it’s her weakest entry.
Nano should pass too, but not yet convinced.

As for Andra Chansen: Boris René and De Vet Du, based on fan base alone.
Dinah Nah Nah, Adrijana and Charlotte flunks

Nano – A very Rag N Bone Man sort of song, modern and the guy has potential on stage to do well. Adrijana – A very real Swedish hip-hop track Boris – Once again proving he is a very talented vocalist with a 70s vibe soul track. He needs ESC, the guy knows how to sell a song! Charlotte has a lovely song, but it’s not something people are going to pick up the phone for. Dina Nah is a bit cheap sounding, Ace Wilder the verse lets it down but I think she’ll go through because of her name.… Read more »

What i’m hoping for:

Ace and Nano to the final.
Dinah and Andrijana to Andra Chansen

5. Boris
6. De Vet Du
7. Charlotte – She clearly just wants to promote her music. No interest in winning.
