They say it takes two to tango.
But on Saturday night, seven acts will share the stage in Malmö, during Deltävling 2 of Melodifestivalen 2019.
“Sing For Love” hitmaker and Melfest veteran Andreas Johnson has the honour of opening the show.
Newcomer Malou Prytz sings second and Oscar Enestad is on third. Their songs are “I Do Me” and “I Love It”.
They’re followed by Jan Malmsjö. He is a decorated Swedish actor and voiced Lumiere in the Swedish dub of Beauty & The Beast.
He’s followed by vlogger Vlad Reiser, who describes his song “Nakna i regnet”, as a “modern love song”.
Idol alumni Hannah Ferm & LIAMOO sing sixth and “Cool Me Down” megastar Margaret will close the show with her track “Tempo”.
As discussed last week we won’t hear the songs in full until the live semi-final on Saturday night.
However, SVT has released 1-minute snippets of the songs, which are available to listen to now on SVT Play.

Last week, early response to snippets suggested that Nano and Anna Bergendahl would advance direkt til final.
In the event, they both ended up at Andra Chansen and will now duel to sing again in Stockholm.
Instead Wiktoria and Mohombi advanced to the final. Whether a change in the way the app vote works is responsible for those results remains to be seen.
Lyrics for all of Saturday night’s songs are available on the Melodifestivalen website.
