Andra Chansen was on in Eskilstuna to determine the final qualifiers for next week’s Melodifestivalen 2020 final. Eight acts faced four duels to fight for the last four tickets to the Friends Arena.

After all votes were in, Anis Don Demina, Paul Rey, Felix Sandman and Méndez feat. Alvaro Estrella were announced as the final four qualifiers to the grand final in Stockholm.

In our Andra Chansen polls, our readers picked Ellen Benediktson & Simon Peyron, Malou Prytz, Felix Sandman and Méndez ft. Alvaro Estrella to advance. While Ellen & Simon only beat out Anis Don Demina by a 200 votes, the other three clearly led their polls, respectively.

The Wiwi Jury thought along mostly the same lines. They picked three of these four winners but suggested a different winner for the fourth duel. There, Drängarna finish above Méndez and Alvaro Estrella — but it’s a close one.

However, the decision was all in the hands of the Swedish public. History tells us that they can often vote very differently (“Statements”, anybody?).

Duel 1: Anis don Demina vs Ellen Benediktson & Simon Peyron

Anis don Demina delivered a very energetic performance which was met which a huge reception by the crowd. “Vem e som oss” has already received one of this year’s biggest Melodifestivalen debuts on the Swedish Spotify charts. And just like in last week’s heat in Malmö, Ellen and Simon showed off great vocals paired with strong chemistry between the two. Once the votes were in, Anis don Demina was revealed as this duel’s winner.

Duel 2: Malou Prytz vs Paul Rey

Malou once again delivered a spot-on performance of her entry “Ballerina”, which peaked at number 73 on the Swedish charts. And similar to his performance at the second heat, Paul Rey seemed to know exactly how to connect with the audience during his performance of “Talking In My Sleep”. Paul Rey managed to secure the ticket to the final with his song “Talking In My Sleep”.

Duel 3: Felix Sandman vs Frida Öhrn

Earning one of the top Spotify debuts this year, Felix Sandman seemed as confident as ever. His performance of “Boys With Emotions” came across just as modern and well-choreographed as in the first heat. On the other hand, Frida Öhrn seemed to walk the stage as perfectly as she did in last week’s heat. After the votes were in, Felix Sandman managed to secure the third ticket to the final.

Duel 4: Méndez feat. Alvaro Estrella vs Drängarna

Méndez and Alvaro Estrella brought the heat and flavour to the arena in Eskilstuna. Followed by a great week on the Swedish charts for Drängarna, they intoxicated the audience with their uplifting song. Despite strong competition, Méndez feat. Alvaro Estrella couldn’t be stopped by Drängarna.

Melodifestivalen 2020 grand final running order

The running order for the grand final can also be determined at the end of Andra Chansen. Recent history dictates that the winner can come from anywhere in the running order. Last year, John Lundvik won from tenth in the running order. Robin Bengtsson won from fourth, Frans was tenth and Måns Zelmerlöw sang sixth.

  1. Victor Crone – “Troubled Waters”
  2. Paul Rey – “Talking In My Sleep”
  3. The Mamas – “Move”
  4. Mohombi – “Winners”
  5. Hanna Ferm – “Brave”
  6. Méndez feat. Alvaro Estrella – “Vamos Amigos”
  7. Dotter – “Bulletproof”
  8. Robin Bengtsson – “Take A Chance”
  9. Mariette – “Shout It Out”
  10. Felix Sandman – “Boys With Emotions”
  11. Anna Bergendahl – “Kingdom Come”
  12. Anis Don Demina – “Vem e som oss”

Melodifestivalen 2020 international jury

This year’s international jury features — once again — eight countries. The jury includes the Eurovision 2019 winner, the Netherlands, as well as Australia, Austria, Armenia, France, Iceland, Eurovision 2019 host Israel and Malta.

My only disappointment as expected was “Surface” not going through ? we could be in for the strongest Mello final in years if Ellen/Simon won their duel but I’m thrilled Mendez & Alvaro qualified, Vamos Amigos is such a jubilant fun song.

I just watched this back. Malou Prytz did so well! That was really unlucky for her to be drawn against Paul Rey. So much for her dark arena. 🙁 Guess I’ll just have to talk about it in my sleep instead.
Felix is still my favourite, by the way. Based on tonight’s other NF results, that probably means he won’t win. If I had to guess the final winner… Dotter or Anna, maybe?

If I know the Swedes right this will happen in the final:
Jury will praise Anna and the mamas and the list will be following:
1 – The Mamas
2- Anna
3- Dotter

The viewers vote will come in and their top will be following
1- Hanna
2- Anna
3- Anis

Meaning Anna will probably win this year. Dotter will come in the middle somewhere. That is how it usually works in MF, the one that Europe wants never win.

So…with 5 male singers in the race (Victor Crone, Paul Rey, Mohombi, Robin and Felix)…there are 40% chances Sweden will be represented by a male, 6th year in a row. Though I hope Dotter will win, the only listenable song (and not that granny-voiced Anna)

Granny-voiced Anna she is 28 years old. Anna has for my opinion the best entry for this Eurovision 2020 in Rotterdam we will see what the final results will give as well for the Jury and Televoting. Bookmakers is just a prediction with won’t be sure that Dotter will win. For example Eesti Laul 2020 Uku Suviste – What Love Is won the contest but was no 2 at the bookmakers which Jaagup Tuisk – Beautiful Lie was the bookies favorites don’t give to much hope on the Bookmakers. Dotter song is good but its a song that sounds familiar… Read more »

Honestly it was pretty obvious except for eurofans that Paul Rey would make it through. He’s been the favourite all week long.
Anyways for me the Hall of Fame stuff was way more fun then the competing songs. Loreen was something…

With the amount of votes Malou received, I’m willing to bet it was actually quite close beteen her and Paul. Granted I think Paul killed it tonight so I thought he was more likely to go through.

I think Anna is going to win due to the age tiered voting system that has been introduced. Anna will be competitive in younger age brackets but I think appeal significantly to older age groups over Dotter

Well yea, I do – Anna’s my favourite. What’s wrong with the logic? Are you aware of the age tiered voting, and do you disagree that Anna’s song would have more appeal to older people than Dotter’s? Come on, let’s have a conversation instead of banal rebuttals…

That’s still only half the votes, though – the juries could easily stop her from winning.

Yes Anna would have more appeal among older, I don’t disagree there. But in order to win you must have appeal among all groups and I don’t think Anna has that. Most people I know who support Anna are over 50..

Melfest 2020 may be the year of the woman but Andra Chansen was a totally sausage fest. Shocked Vamos Amigos qualified. Only one Swedish song in final—that’s a first for Melfest!! Also I’m sure this year’s winner will be decided by jury and not Swedish people.
