There’s a fire on the horizon and she’s the spark.
And if the audience for the Andra Chansen rehearsal are right, then Anna Bergendahl will be setting the final of Melodifestivalen 2019 ablaze.
That’s because she won tonight’s Andra Chansen audience poll in Nyköping. A total of 634 fans were surveyed as they left the show and 158 of them picked “Ashes To Ashes” as their favourite song of the night. That means Anna won 25% of all votes cast.
She’s closely followed by Arvingarna. The dreamy dansband received 124 votes or 19.5% of all cast tonight. Their score means the audience thinks they deserve to win Duel Number 4.
Third place went to vlogger Vlad Reiser. He’s the last act who made it into triple figures, winning 113 votes or 18% of the total.
And finally in fourth we find returning act Lisa Ajax. The “I Don’t Give A” hitmaker received 94 votes. That’s 15% of the total, which is 10% behind Anna but 7% clear of the fifth place act.
The top four results curiously align to the duel pairings.
Unlike the semi-finals, Andra Chansen is organised around a series of duels, where only one act out of the two duellists will advance to the final in Stockholm.
The bottom four acts were Nano with 8%, Rebecka Karlsson on 5.5%, Martin Stenmarck on 5% and Andreas Johnson on 4%.
If the public have their way, those four acts will be knocked out in the duels and will not advance to the final at Friends Arena.
You can find full results from the Andra Chansen audience poll below:
- Anna Bergendahl – “Ashes To Ashes” (158 votes, 25%)
- Arvingarna – “I Do” (124 votes, 19.5%)
- Vlad Reiser – “Nakna i regnet” (113 votes, 18%)
- Lisa Ajax – “Torn” (94 votes, 15%)
- Nano – “Chasing Rivers” (53 votes, 8%)
- Rebecka Karlsson – “Who I Am” (36 votes, 5.5%)
- Martin Stenmarck – “Låt skiten brinna” (30 votes, 5%)
- Andreas Johnson – “Army Of Us” (26 votes, 4%)
In previous years, the poll has been problematic, as the poll simply asks people who their favourite was on the night.
However, tonight’s results neatly align with the duels, and may give some indication of how results will play out tomorrow night.
Andra Chansen will air live from 8:00pm CET on SVT1 and the running order for the final will be announced live on air.
