Hej, Malmö! Melodifestivalen 2018 rolls on to its third week. This time, we’re re-visiting the home of Eurovision 2013, as the seven acts take to the Malmö Arena stage for Semi-Final 3.
History suggests that we might not be seeing the Melodifestivalen winner in this semi-final, though. Since the current Melfest format was introduced in 2002, the overall winner has only come from Semi-Final 3 twice. Eric Saade won in 2011, as well as last year’s winner, Robin Bengtsson.
Can one of Martin Almgren, Barbi Escobar, Moncho, Jessica Andersson, Kalle Moraeus & Orsa Spelmän, Dotter or Mendez add to that list? We’ll get out first hint with the release of the one minute snippets of their songs!
You can listen to the snippets below — simply click on the each artist’s name or song title.
Later on tonight at 19:00 CET, SVT will also release the thirty second rehearsal clips. Plenty of teasing to get us ready for Saturday, y’all!
