Securing your two spots in andra chansen are Klara Hammarström and Alvaro Estrella.
There was a clear top three in this poll and Klara Hammarström was just short of reaching a place in the top two. Instead, the star had to settle for a respectable third place, with y’all awarding her song “Beat of Broken Hearts” with 313 votes (23.03%).
Things start to drop considerably in terms of voting share from here. The only other act to achieve more than 100 votes was Alvaro Estrella. Enough of you seem to be dancing along to his song “Baila Baila” that you’d give him another chance in andra chansen. Alvaro picked up 116 votes (8.54%).
Unfortunately, that means the other three acts would be sent home if the results were up to you.
Emil Assergård’s entry “Om allting skiter sig” translates to “If everything goes wrong”. Sadly, it seems not many of y’all disagreed with this and he finished fifth in this poll with 76 votes (5.59%).
In sixth place is Elisa. Her song “Den du är” picked up 31 votes (2.28%).
Finally, coming in seventh position are band Mustasch. The group have been under scrutiny this week over a previous conviction for sexual harassment. Their song “Contagious” only received 30 votes (2.21%).
Poll results: Who should win semi-final 3 of Melodifestivalen 2021?
- Charlotte Perrelli – “Still Young” – 30.39% (413 votes)

For the first time in 7 Years I won’t be watching Mello. The weakest semi ever and Mustasch should have never been allowed to compete.
Pretty weak heat this week. Tusse and Perreli are the best but it’s not a standout field in any way. Nothing that shouts “winner”. But Tusse could be a good top 3 contender I guess.
Why did Charlotte kept her ex husband’s surname?
Doesn’t it make sense to go back to your original one or change it to your new husband’s surname?
I mean, I wouldn’t like to carry my ex’s surname all my life… don’t get it
Please my point is not judgmental, just wondering. (Angela Merkel is another example)
Tbh that is something I wondered about as well. No jugement on my part, just curiosity.
Career wise. It is actually quite common to keep surnames of former spouses. Susan Sarandon for instance. She divorced Sarandon in the 1970s but still keeps the name.
Because her older last name (the one she won Eurovision with) is pretty basic. Every neighborhood in Sweden knows a Charlotte Nilsson. Perelli sound snore exotic and fun
I hope Charlotte goes DTF, I also voted for her. I’m sure Tusse will qualify DTF, based on the momentum behind his entry and all the attention he’s receiving.
A woman who is not afraid to be old is Brigitte Bardot, all natural. Charlotte Perrelli on the other hand…..
Why would you make a comment like that? Neither women need your judgment of their looks. And Charlotte has spoken before about getting a number of surgeries during her very difficult marriage to Nicola Perrelli. Have a bit more compassion.
Eh? Brigitte Bardot is also a supporter of Front National or whatever they are called these days. That is not something to be ideal.She is also what, 80 years old? When you are that close to death you don¨t need to worry about age either..
Perreli on the other hand had a difficult marriage with msicarriages, cheating spouse and messy divorce. If that makes her feel better who are we to judge..
I don’t want to hurt anyone, hope Perrelli is happy with her choices. Allow my opinion:when you are unhappy is not the right context to go to surgery.
Everybody has different opinions of course. You might think its wrong but dont judge others who dont think so. No one is wrong here.
Think it actually could be right. The best of a pretty weak heat! Dotter looks like the one to beat, though I fear Swedes choose Tusse cause they “feel” him!
Or maybe just, you know, he has a better song
Typical politics in Sweden. If Tusse wins against Dotter I hope Sweden is OUT and last place in semi final
