And now you can watch rehearsal clips from each act too.
That’s because broadcaster SVT has just uploaded clips to SVTPlay.

Producers shape each semi-final running order to offer contrasts. Thanks to the snippets we now have an indication of why each act is singing where it.
As in past weeks, Mariette opens the show with an upbeat number, albeit of a different flavour. “Shout It Out” has been touted as a Coldplay style number and the anthemic beat should get feet in the arena stomping.
Albin Johnsén follows in second with a slower effort in “Livet börjar nu”. Things change again with third position. Drängarna‘s song “Piga och dräng” sounds like Timoteij meets Rolandz and how that will play out remains to be seen.
At the midway point Amanda Aasa takes the stage. Her electropop entry “Late” is another change in genre and – despite the title – primarily sung in Swedish.
Things speed up in fifth with Anis don Demina. “Vem är som oss” fits neatly into the party song category we’ve seen provided in past years by acts like Samir & Viktor.
Faith Kakembo follows in sixth. “Crying Rivers” is an entry in the grand tradition of ballads. Which sets things up neatly for show closer Mohombi. “Winners” is an upbeat show closer, with strong sonic similarities to Mohombi’s last effort “Hello”.
