Last week there were boys with emotions and mamas that could move.
And this week Melodifestivalen 2020 moves on to Semi-Final 2 in Gothenburg.
Seven more acts will share the stage. Two will advance to the final, two will head to the Andra Chansen duels and three will go no further than the Scandinavium.
Broadcaster SVT has just released the one minute snippets of the songs which you can hear below.
Melodifestivalen 2020 Semi-Final 2
You can click on each act to hear their snippet.
- Klara Hammarström – “Nobody”
- Jan Johansen – “Miraklernas tid”
- Dotter – “Bulletproof”
- Méndez feat. Alvaro Estrella – “Vamos amigos”
- Linda Bengtzing – “Alla mina sorger”
- Paul Rey – “Talking in My Sleep”
- Anna Bergendahl – “Kingdom Come”
Those familiar with Jan Johansen may notice that his vocals sound different. That’s because they’re actually those of disqualified singer Thorsten Flinck. There was not enough time to re-record the track. According to SVT’s Melfest blog, Flinck’s version will be the one featured on the official Mello album and made available for streaming.
Clips taken from each act’s rehearsals will follow tonight at 9pm CET. These will show a first impression of staging ahead of Saturday night’s show. However, fans will only hear the full version live during Semi-Final 2.

Newcomer Klara Hammarström has the honour of opening the show. Her song “Nobody” has drawn comparisons to Latin popstars and one-time Melfest finalist Margaret.
Klara’s followed by last minute replacement Jan Johansen. His Swedish song “Miraklernas tid” is said to be “theatrical”.
Dotter is on third. She of course crashed out in the semis in 2018 and will hope for a better result this time around.
Fourth in the running order is Méndez feat. Alvaro Estrella. The dynamic duo have had mixed experiences in the competition previously.
Frequent semi-finalist Linda Bengtzing is back for another crack in fifth. “Alla mina sorger” has been reported as her best chance of advancing for some time.
Newcomer Paul Rey sings sixth. “Talking in My Sleep” is being talked up as a breakthrough entry for him.
Fresh from last year’s Bergendemption, Anna Bergendahl is back for a second consecutive year. She’ll sing “Kingdom Come” in seventh position.
