The first semi-final of Melodifestivalen 2018 takes place Saturday in Karlstad. On Thursday the first snippets and rehearsal clips of the seven competing act’s songs debuted through SVT’s website.
Sigrid Bernson is serving rays of sunshine for days, John Lundvik has borrowed Sanna Nielsen’s laser matrix lights show from 2014 and Idol alum Renaida is rocking a red hot stage show, complete with backing dancers.
Like Lumiere in Beauty And The Beast, Edward Blom is surrounded by dancing cutlery and food, Kikki Danielsson‘s staging calls to mind a Nashville dive bar, while Kamferdrops is bringing a magic trick to the stage and Benjamin Ingrosso looks set to gyrate his way through his performance of “Dance You Off”.
And now after watching the rehearsals, and hearing the snippets, we want to know who you think should win the semi-final.
