Melodifestivalen 2022 is now in full swing. The second heat took place in Stockholm’s Avicii Arena and there was a bit of everything. Seven performers staked their claim for a spot in the final, and there was even a bit of “Rena rama ding dong” too.
In the end, Liamoo and John Lundvik advanced directly to the final, joining Cornelia Jakobs and Robin Bengtsson from last week.
Furthermore, two artists secured a spot in the semi-final on 5 March, which serves as a second chance round. Those spots went to Alvaro Estrella and Tone Sekelius.

Liamoo with “Bluffin”
If there’s one thing for certain, Liamoo was not bluffing — he had all the right cards. Putting together a slick performance, Liamoo opened the show and set the bar high. In the end, he was announced as an automatic qualifier through the first round of voting.
John Lundvik with “Änglavakt”
Following the second round of voting, Melodifestivalen 2019 winner John Lundvik secured his spot in the grand final. In our first look at the updated semi-final voting presentation, John received the maximum 12 points from all voting age groups except 3-9 year olds to book his place in the final.
