Nu kör vi! Melodifestivalen moves on to Semi-Final 3 in Malmö this week. At this point in the competition last year, we first heard last year’s winner Robin Bengtsson sing his winning song “I Can’t Go On” and hopes are similarly high this year. Seven more acts are set to take to the stage in the Malmö arena, all hoping to hear David Lindgren tell them they’ve gone “direkt til final” or failing that “Andra Chansen”.
Idol winner Martin Almgren will open the show, Melfest newcomer Barbi Escobar is on second and Mocho is on third with the tropicana-sounding “Cuba Libre”.
Golden girl Jessica Andersson sings sandwiched between two threesomes in fourth, Kalle Moraeus & Orsa Spelmän are on fifth singing “Min Dröm”, singer-songwriter Dotter – the Melodifestivalen 2018 Semi-Final 3 act you’re most excited for – sings sixth and two-time Melfest alum Mendez closes the show singing “Everyday”.
Now that SVT has released the snippets, we want to know who you think should win Semi-Final 3 in Malmö, head direkt til final and join the Stockholm sausage fest at Friends Arena alongside Benjamin Ingrosso, John Lundvik, LIAMOO, and Samir & Viktor.
You can vote for as many acts as you like, but unlike the Melodifestivalen Official app, you can only vote once, so make it count. The results will be revealed on Saturday immediately prior to Semi-Final 3 which airs at 20:00CET on SVT1.
WHO SHOULD WIN MELODIFESTIVALEN 2018 SEMI-FINAL 3?
1 Martin Almgren “A Bitter Lullaby”
2 Barbi Escobar “Stark”
3 Moncho “Cuba Libre”
4 Jessica Andersson “Party Voice”
5 Kalle Moraeus & Orsa Spelmän “Min dröm”
6 Dotter “Cry”
7 Méndez “Everyday”
Last week you wanted Margaret and Samir & Vitkor to win the semi-final, with LIAMOO and Mimi Werner as your picks for Andra Chansen. Although Sweden didn’t entirely deliver – “In My Cabana” will battle it out at Andra Chansen, while “Last Breath” has cruised to the final in Friends Arena – you did correctly identify this week’s four qualifiers. Let us know your favourite song from this week in the comments below!
