Melodifestivalen Semi-Final 1 Running Order
As with Eurovision, producers decide the Melodifestivalen running order to provide the best possible show. Songs are ordered to contrast one another and give each artist an opportunity to shine.
The Mamas open things up with “Move”. The ladies will hope their experience at Eurovision last year helps them edge out their competition.
Spotify star Suzi P is on second. Hip hop has had a mixed history at Melodifestivalen, but she might be the person to turn that trend around with her song “Moves”. Returning Melfest winner Robin Bengtsson is on third. His entry – “Take a Chance” has drawn comparisons to Ed Sheerhan.
Malou Prytz made the final last year and will hope “Ballerina” can get her there again. OVÖ follow her with their party track “Inga Problem” and seasoned balladeer Sonja Aldén takes to the stage in sixth position with “Sluta aldrig gå”.
2018 runner-up Felix Sandman closes out proceedings. His second solo entry in the competition “Boys with Emotions” tackles the topical social issue of male mental health. How the entries fare is down to the Swedish public.
