Tonight’s first semi-final of Melodifestivalen 2018 looks set to have it all. With dancing vegetables, magic tricks and light shows a plenty — and that’s just what we saw in the rehersal clips — we’re already excited.
Now, we can hear nearly all of the songs as well. SVT has published 2.30 minute snippets of each song, leaving just a little bit of mystery left.
You can find links to all the snippets below. Simply click on the song title for each artist to be sent to the clip on SVT Play.
Melodifestivalen 2018: Semi-Final One Snippets
- Sigrid Bernson — “Patrick Swayze”
- John Lundvik — “My Turn”
- Renaida — “All the Feels”
- Edward Blom — “Livet pa en pinne”
- Kikki Danielsson — “Osby Tennessee”
- Kamferdrops — “Solen lever kvar hos dig”
- Benjamin Ingrosso — “Dance You Off”
Of course, we’re still waiting to hear if Kamferdrops will sing in the competition tonight. SVT has still not revealed her fate, after the late drama regarding the eligibility of “Solen lever kvar hos dig”.
Last night, the audience vote put John Lundvik as their favourite performance. Benjamin Ingrosso finished second, with Sigrid Bernson and Edward Blom taking the Andra Chansen slots.
That’s a big difference to our readers poll. After the first snippets were released, y’all wanted to see Benjamin and Renaida qualify direct to the final. Kamferdrops and John were your calls for Andra Chansen. It’s all up in the air, y’all!
You can hear all the songs in full tonight, as the first semi-final of Melodifestivalen 2018 goes live. You can watch on SVT Play from 20:00 CET, with David Lindgren taking the sole hosting duty.
