Hej Örnsköldsvik! This weekend, Melodifestivalen 2018 Semi-Final 4 takes place at the Fjällräven Center. The last seven acts of this year’s competition will take to the stage, hoping to win one of two tickets direkt til final or failing that the final two spots in the destiny-deciding duels of Andra Chansen.
Musical theatre performer Emmi Christensson kicks things off with “Icarus”, followed by 16 year-old performer Elias Abbas who’ll sing “Mitt Paradis” and returning act Felicia Olsson, who last appeared at Melodifestivalen in 2013.
Dansband Rolandz are on fourth. Olivia Eliasson – who rose to fame on YouTube with a cover of Anton Ewald’s 2013 Mello song “Begging” – performs fifth and one third of the act formerly known as FO&O, Felix Sandman performs sixth.
Closing the show is fan favourite Mariette, who returns to the competition for a third time with “For You”, which was written by Grammy nominated songwriter Jörgen Elofsson.
But before the super seven take to the stage, or you hear the snippets of their songs tomorrow, we want to know which act you’re most excited for.
You can vote in the poll below for as many of the acts as you want but beware, unlike the Melodifestivalen app, you can only vote once.
We’ll close the poll tomorrow before SVT starts unveiling the 60-second snippets of the competitor’s songs.
