We flooded our basement over snaps of this week’s rehearsals. We gasped at the eyebrow-raising lyrics. And we’ve been gagging for the 2 and a half minute snippets all week. Now SVT has released the almost full studio versions of the seven songs competing in Semi-Final 2 of Melodifestivalen 2017. Before rehearsals, y’all were loving Mariette. And after rehearsals she’s taken a commanding lead with 44% of all votes in our poll for who you want to win the semi-final. But will this longer snippet keep the momentum going?
