Heat four of Sweden’s Melodifestivalen 2022 took place through Saturday evening. The final seven acts of this year’s competition presented their songs for the first time.

Two of them booked a spot direkt till final. Klara Hammarström and Medina will head straight to the Melodifestivalen 2022 grand final at Friends Arena in Stockholm on 12 March.

Furthermore, another two acts will have a second chance to reach the final. Anna Bergendahl and Lillasyster secured a place in the second chance semi-final, due to take place on 5 March.

 

Klara Hammarström and Medina win Melodifestivalen 2022 heat four

The heats of Melodifestivalen 2022 feature two rounds of voting.

Following the first round, the winner earned the first ticket to to the grand final – that was Klara Hammarström.

A second round of voting then took place between the remaining six acts. After the votes from each age group were revealed, it was Medina who came out on top and who will also progress to the final.

The next two highest-placed acts earn a spot in the second chance semi-finals. These went to Anna Bergendahl and Lillasyster.

Heat four running order

  1. Anna Bergendahl – “Higher Power”
  2. Lillasyster – “Till Our Days Are Over”
  3. Malin Christin – “Synd om dig”
  4. Tenori – “La stella”
  5. Medina – “In i dimman”
  6. Angelino – “The End”
  7. Klara Hammarström – “Run to the Hills”

Upcoming Melfest 2022 shows

Now all four heats have been completed, the next show on 5 March will be the second chance. The eight acts who have qualified to this round will be split into two semi-finals – the draw for this takes place during the coming week. The top two from each semi-final will qualify to the grand final of Melfest 2022.

The grand final follows on 12 March, where the four second chance winners will join the eight direct qualifiers for a 12-song show. The winner will earn the right to represent Sweden at Eurovision 2022 in May.

What do you make ofthe results? Are you glad to see Klara Hammarström and Medina qualify from Melodifestivalen 2022 heat four? Let us know in the comments below.

Det är ingen överraskning att Klara är i final, men att Medina blev uttagen är en överraskning för mig. En jag verkligen inte förstår. Vi har haft alla förberedelser nu, och jag är ganska säker på att Cornelia kommer att vinna. Jag ser egentligen ingen som kan hindra henne från att vinna. Kanske Liamoo eller Klara, men det skulle vara en överraskning.

Thanks to this new system of announcing the results of the Democratic Televotes, we now know who placed third and fourth in heats two through four, but I don’t know where the heat one semifinalists placed because the app crashed that night.

I think I see what You mean. 2 3rd placers and 2 4th placers per group.

It’s 50/50 on Bagge/Cornelia if you look on Swedish social media. The most comment’s I read about Klara is bad, she will end up around 5-6th i think. Will not get many votes from the public.

Klara’s song is giving me Edurne – Amanecer vibes…

The main issue is that she does not have good control in high belting notes, and she is also using too much support from the backing vocalists elsewhere.

Bagge and to lesser extent Cornelia won landslide win due to being in weaker heat. Had Bagge been in the 4th heat I doubt he would made it direkt. But for final I think Swedes realise there are better than Bagge. Obviously we know he suffers from stage fright so I dont think we would just put him through it..

Do you think people are going to overthink it? It’s just a lot of people voting and free vote. And you can vote for many songs as you want. I don’t know. If they like, they will likely vote I guess. We tend to overthink, but people don’t. Same for Eurovision and other national contests.

Melfest doesn’t let their participants release their music at all before the semi. I am a fan of the way Eesti laul and UMK do it with the music videos, so if everyone would have enough time and money, a music video would be welcome for each Melfest entry. Having a clean studio version of any kind should still be the primary thing, though.

In this Mello edition it took me by suprise that a big factor for the votes seemed to be the name of the artist and the hype around him rather than the appeal his song has. I mean, if we look at the paste years result they voted for Tusse, The Mamas etc who are not that famous, whereas at the same time they did not choose Eric Saade, Danny Saucedo or Molly Sanden. My point is that if this is true, in this year’s edition Cornelia might have a problem against Bagge or Klara (who is hyped since her… Read more »

Melo is such a disappointment. I enjoyed a lot the first heat, it felt as there was something different from the usual stuff. Then it became the same old, predictable af, same names, same songwriters, same performers, same mediocre camera and staging fest. This is disgraceful. It’s impossible to say at times if they actually sing live or not. It sometimes feels infantile. People vote based on the popularity and appeal of the performers. I’m not rooting for Sweden anymore. Ireland, you deserve your achievements. The only outstanding song and performance this year is “Hold me closer” and I’ll eat… Read more »

I agree. As I’ve already said (and been downvoted for that…), Swedes and Norwegian have a tendency to vote for what they believe to be cool and/or popular in their respective national selections, as if they were obsessed with being “international enough” in the eyes of the rest of the world, particularly at the ESC. They send good songs but as you said, most of them are indeed very predictable with the same old recepe (English lyrics, breakdowns, crazy outfits, high pitched notes, same songwriters…). I had a pleasant surprise with Dimani though 🙂 And I like Cornelia too. But… Read more »

Melfest used to be more careful when spreading strong acts through different semis and Angelino paid the price. Anna was competent as always, even if this is far from her best attempt. I loved the chic cowgirl outfit! Medina was very entertaining. It felt very Mediterranean, but Swedish at the same time, they’ll be a nice addition to the final. Klara’s song is probably my favorite uptempo entry on the selection, but what they were thinking with that staging? That outfit was awful too.

I agree in basically everything you said. This was the strongest semi. Run to the Hills is probably my favorite uptempo song of this Melfest (and likely my 2nd overall). Anna and Medina were quite good too. I liked Angelino too. I expected him to do better in voting. Surprisingly, I liked Lilasyster’s song this year much more than last, so I am totally fine with them going to the semi.

Yeah, Tower of Babylon should have won Dora in 2019, as it was the only song that could have qualified. I also liked Jure’s ballad, but I’m not sure would it be competitive enough. Other 14 songs stood no chance, and the winning song was not even among the better ones among them.
Aside, Sweden being represented by a woman would be a refreshing change, as it last happened in 2014 (sure, The Mamas won in 2020, but… yeah).

The song is so plane, boring and don´t get it why Swedes are so into it! If they finally send him to Eurovision I really doubt if Sweden is gonna make it to the finals! 🙁

Klara will win this year and I hate it, I am so prepared for a new failure. Cornelia will be the new Dotter. Melfest can f***off! Tired off my own country!

Anna should have qualified over Klara.

As I expected from the snippet—loved Medina. Even if it borrows at liberty from Bella Ciao. I can’t help it. Maybe it’s why I love it so much. And I genuinely loved Run For the Hills—but I don’t understand that staging. Klara loves these elaborate cosplay costumes but I think it detracts. This song really needs something modern in the staging. I don’t understand why SVT reveals the points the way they do. Why have the last points be all about the winner vs going back and forth to create tension. It’s basic reality talent competition tv 101. Who did… Read more »

She’s gorgeous and has an amazing voice, stage presence snd smile, but she has no style whatsoever. Starting with the fake tan.
I love her so much but that was quite a let down.

Klara’s staging was actually decent and all the chinks can be fixed for Eurovision.

I feel the beat of In I Dimman is some sort of mash up between Bella Ciao and Pepas, and I liked it

Do not know what it is with Medina’s song. No deep text and uptempo. But I get chills and tears in my eye. Thinking of Ukraine when I hear it.
Now we will dance until we die etc… now the hole world will know .. that we will rise again… etc. Feels like a battle song I need now.
I was not expecting that I whould me a fan of their song. But I am. For me it is Clara and Medina.

I’m sorry but Klara’s staging was so poor. With a song in that tempo and genre you need to have energy and dancers and she just stood there alone for the most part as if she was glued to the floor and giving us basically nothing? Ruined everything! Klara and Liamoo need help with the staging asap, OK songs with terrible performances.

Liamoo tried to copy Benjamin’s staging and failed, Klara saw Jamal’s tree and thought ‘That’s pretty’.

She just enjoyed and that’s what matters. It was colorful and fun. She knows her target is the kids and young audience and she just embrace it.
Anna does the same with the older audience

If you wanna win you have to make everyone your target audience. Especially with Melo’s voting system.

I liked the staging but it can be fixed for Eurovision. It’s not that hard. I liked both Liamoo and Klara’s stagings and their voices are good.
