Seven acts, two spots in the final and two more for andra chansen. In just a couple of hours, the Swedish public will decide the winners of the third show of Melodifestivalen 2017. Our readers, however, had the chance to vote for their favourites in the third semifinal of Melodifestivalen 2017 already. With 1,559 votes cast, your winner is Finnish star and Eurovision fan favourite Krista Siegfrids.
After first being the act you were most excited to see from the third semifinal, she is now the act you most want to win the third semifinal in Växjö. Last year Krista failed to qualify with “Faller”, but this year she is ready to spin our world with “Snurra min jord”. Y’all are clearly still supporting Krista, as she took 463 votes — just under 30% of the total cast!
Unfortunately Krista finished last in the audience poll following Friday’s show. But we’re bottling up all of our good wishes and sending them to her, as she’s one of the nicest residents of Planet Eurovision and we love her to bits.
In second place is another Melodifestivalen returnee, but one with Melfest final experience. After finishing fifth with “Constellation Prize”, Robin Bengtsson returns with “I Can’t Go On”. It looks like y’all want Robin to keep going though! He received 343 votes, 22% of all the votes.
Jasmine Kara debuts at the contest this year but has already made a huge impact on some of our readers. Only six votes separated her and Robin from second and third place.
The last act you would save and want to see in the race to become Sweden’s Eurovision representative is FO&O. Even though the group had to change their name, the fooers are still supporting their boys. Felix, Oscar and Omar got 143 votes.
Bella & Filippa and Anton Hagman — who both got discovered through YouTube and are both playing guitar on stage — finished fifth and sixth. The oldest Melodifestivalen contestant ever, Owe Thörnqvist, finished last with just 48 votes.
Now it’s up to the Swedish public to decide which acts they want to put through. The fun in Växjö starts at 20:00 CET and you can follow the show live on SVT Play.
