It’s one of the most anticipated national finals of the season. Now Swedish broadcaster SVT has revealed the running order of the final of Melodifestivalen 2021.

The announcement was made almost immediately after the Andra Chansen show. Melodifestivalen 2021 producer Karin Gunnarsson revealed the positions in the traditional way with Post-Its. The blue Post-Its represent the male artists and the pink Post-Its represent the female artists.

Melodifestivalen 2021 Running Order

  1. Danny Saucedo – “Dandi Dansa”
  2. Klara Hammarström – ” Beat Of Broken Hearts”
  3. Anton Ewald – “New Religion”
  4. The Mamas – “In The Middle”
  5. Paul Rey – “The Missing Piece”
  6. Charlotte Perrelli – “Still Young”
  7. Tusse – “Voices”
  8. Alvaro Estrella – “Baila Baila”
  9. Clara Klingenström – “Behöver inte dig idag”
  10. Eric Saade – “Every Minute”
  11. Dotter – “Little Tot”
  12. Arvingarna – “Tänker inte alls gå hem”

 

Who does the running order favour?

In previous years Melodifestivalen winners have come from all points in the starting order.

That said, there’s a general feeling among many fans of the later the better. Specifically spots 6-12 are held in higher esteem than earlier positions. There are exceptions to this – Robin Bengtsson won from fourth in 2017 and The Mamas won from third last year. But there’s still a widespread belief that producers place songs they want to win later. Or at least songs they feel will keep viewers around for the broadcast.

If you buy into that, it seems The Mamas and Danny Saucedo are not the producers preferred choices for Rotterdam. Both acts have performed well on streaming platforms such as Spotify and YouTube, but the earlier draw could suggest producers aren’t moved by them.

Fans on Twitter have been chanting “Dotterdam” with the news the “Little Tot” singer will perform next-to-last. While others have noticed that Eric Saade will be performing in 10th position for the fourth time!

A note of caution: Running orders are not everything and it can all change on the night. In particular the jury vote is crucial: A bad vocal or technical errors on the stage in front of the international juries can sink your chances of winning overall.

Does the running order give anything away? Do you think there’ll be a surprise winner? Let us know in the comments below!

The construction of the running order tells me SVT is signaling they want Eric or Dotter to win Melfest. Although I believe The Mamas could ultimately win from any spot (as is the case with any song ultimately), I think putting them at #4 is a slap in the face. They should’ve been swapped with Tusse.

Despite all critique it is a strong final, strongest in years. And I do think its a wide open field! Tusse isnt that sure winner, nor is Eric or Dotter. Every vote will matter, it will be tight!

For me, its clearly Eric Saade, as this song grabbed me since I first heard it.
Tusse would be alright but I fear that it won‘t stand out in Rotterdam.
Dotter is ok, but neither Little Tot nor Bulletproof ever grabbed me.

Do the producers believe an artist’s gender really plays such a big part? Quite disappointing to see people not only differentiate by gender but also to stick to gender “norms” of blue and pink.
Or is there some significance I am missing?

The Mamas would be the reasonable choice (bringing back 2020 acts reasonable), Dotter would be the popular choice, Eric… has a chance – same goes for Tusse. Clara’s my personal favourite of the bunch though, since my favourites are now out after AC.

Tusse got the pimp spot so perhaps he got the highest televotes out of the whole DTF acts followed by Eric Saade. I love that Danny is opening the show and he has the best staging. I do wonder how things will turn out for Dotter since she’s performing right after Saade? Also I find it funny how Anton sings about creating a new cult and then to be followed by The Mamas who sings about having faith LOL

My gut says Eric’s got this one. He’ll probably do very well with the juries (Dotter jury second) and Tusse midway down the table. But I think Tusse will do a Nano 2017 (I’m not a fan of either song but I think they target the same listener) and will win the televote, but it’ll only be enough for second, and Eric will *just* come in first.

Very much hoping for a Dotter victory, but Eric will do best at Eurovision – just my opinion though 🙂

I adore The Mamas, Catriona—they’re so joyful and warm. I find Move very uplifting and it was in my Top 5 last year—it ended up being my most played song of 2020, obviously keeping me going through all these lockdowns. I’m just not sure In The Middle has the same power as a song to strike the chords it needs for them to win. The Mamas are fantastic but I think the performance and staging needs to push further to make the song more of a moment.

In my opinion, this is a surprisingly close final. Dotter is in prime position, especially following Eric Saade’s risky choreography choice (assuming that he doesn’t change it). My personal favourites are Klara and Clara, aha! Tusse also has a strong following, so do The Mamas, and never underestimate Danny Saucedo or Arvignarna.
P.S. If it’s a “retro year,” then Arvignarna could steal it right at the end. They had my favourite ESC song in 1993. 😉

I just really like the memorable Choruses in both Klara/Clara’s songs, even though they are in different languages. I particularly like Clara’s Abba-sounding voice. She’s my personal favourite this year.

Generally, as much as I might fancy the ‘pretty boys,’ their songs just don’t move me this year.
I would put Dotter 3rd – and she will probably win MelFest anyhow, as she is extraordinarily talented. So The Mamas would be 4th, Eric 5th, Tusse 6th, Danny 7th, Paul Rey 8th; the rest can all just enjoy the evening. But really, any of them can win. It’s a good final.

I think SVT realize there is a fandom for Eric and Dotter and awarded them with some of the best spots. Tusse is also in a great spot. No one should fret about The Mamas considering they won from #3 last year. It does seem obvious it is a 4-way race between the ones I mentioned. While Dotter is my personal favorite, I think actually sending The Mamas is the better choice.

Tusse seems to have the best spot in the final unless if Dotter is not considered as a big favourite from the production, so that means that Eric is very privileged too. I do think, though, that they wanted a strong ending and a good position for Tusse (who is very popular) and the Mamas who won last year. I am mostly sad about Danny, since opening the grand final means that he will propably not have many chances of winning even if this is his best entry in melodifestivalen. I would like to ask,though, a swede if they considere… Read more »

Placing Eric and Dotter in spots 10 and 11 obviously draws the eye straight away. I’m surprised they’re next to each other. Interesting that Tusse is in spot 7, the same spot Dotter had last year with Bulletproof. The Mamas shouldn’t be disappointed with their spot considering they won from a similar position last year. I don’t think much can be deduced from the draw—any of these spots can do well—it looks like it will simply come down to performance and preference on the night.

Do not stare yourselves blind on the running order. The Mamas won last year from place 3. My point is 12 songs are not that much. And most people will have made up their minds before the final.

But just as an example The Mamas won last year from place 3 because they did the performance of a lifetime. And they owned the stage. That is why they won.

Simply put, stop obsessing over starting order.

Hmm. It feels like SVT don’t want Eric Saade or Dotter to win since they follow each other. They probably cancel eachother out too. Also those numbers aren’t exactly pimp-spots either.

Based on these numbers, the top 3 should consist of Dotter, Eric and Tusse, which seems eerily plausible.
