Melodifestivalen 2022 has entered it’s fifth week, and that means it’s time for the semi-finals. The draw for this has now taken place, so we know which acts will be battling against one another.
This year has seen a shake-up to the Melfest format. Rather than the andra chansen round of duels, we now have the semi-finals.
The third and fourth-placed acts from each of the four heats have progressed to the semi-finals. These eight artists have been split into two semi-finals (both taking place on the same night). The top two from each semi-final will progress to the grand final on 12 March.

Polls: Who should qualify from the Melfest 2022 semi-finals?
Now we know the draw for each semi-final, we want to hear from you. Which two acts would you like to see qualify from each semi-final?
Below you can find two separate polls for each semi-final.
As always, you can vote for as many as you would like. But you can only vote once – so choose wisely!
What do you make of the semi-final allocation draw for Melodifestivalen 2022? Who do you want to qualify to the grand final? Let us know in the comments below!
the only song i like from these songs is Som du vill. i am so dissapointed with the Swedish songs this year…
As long as Anna and Cazzi get to the final, I’m happy
I want all 4 participants in semi-final 2 for the final. Really bummed out by this draw. 🙁
The 2nd part will be a bloodbath and no matter how it ends I’ll be sad for the ones who don’t make it through.
Alvaro and Anna + Lisa and Cazzia = Amazing grand final!
Tone, Anna, Lisa and Cazi for Final
Semifinal 1: Anna Bergendahl & Alvaro Estrella
Semifinal 2: Cazzi Opeia & Lisa Miskovsky
Her staging was the best at the semi final 4…
The allocation seems a bit uneven, but I’d pick Anna and Alvaro/Tone from SF1 and Cazzi Opeia and Theoz from SF2 🙂
Im sorry but why is semi 2 way stronger? In semi one only Anna is truly “deserving” of a spot in the final. Semi 2 on the other hand, oh boy talk about a blood bath. well here is what I would choose:
Semi 1: Anna and Alvaro
Semi 2: Theoz and Lisa
I really really REALLY want Lisa to go through but in that semi I am not to hopeful (but at least she will get the 12 points from the oldies).
I wish we had Omar Rudberg – Moving Like That competing here as well.
Anna, Tone, Lisa, Cazzi.
I didn’t need to think too long.
All the girls, of course.
Jonas chose one guy and three girls.
Well, three women and one trans woman.
Wow, I was just going to say that these four are my qualifiers. But I still wanted Linda Bengtzing, Tribe Friday or Niello & Lisa Ajax!
It’s funny how wiwibloggs finally adapted the language of our heats. Andra chansen is now called the semi final and consists of the groups semi final 1 and semi final 2.
The other heats have never been called semi finals, they are just normal heats.
So calling the semi final “semi 5” is just confusing. I hope for a change here
don’t forget the semis in the semi haha the groups are called semi 1 and semi 2 haha
So we have 5 semis and 2 semis within a semi
Yes, so just skip calling the heats semi finals. Only the semi final (heat leading up to a final in Swedish) is a semi final.
Would love to see newcomers doing well – i am tired of Alvaro and Anna lol … good luck
The running for the semis is also announced
1.Som du vill
2.Best to come
3.Till our days are over
4.I can’t get enough
Think this hints who the producers want through and if that’s the case I’d be very happy with the results (Tone, Anna, Theoz and Cazzi)
Me too, they’re my favorites from each SF! 😀
group 1: anna & tone
group 2: cazzi & theoz
Same. Although I fear Alvaro will overcome one of the two you mentioned in group 1
praying to the mello gods that he doesn’t
alvaro got really lucky as he’s the only one appealing to kids in his semi. i think it’s him and anna. semi has theoz and cazzi battling out for kiddie votes, and lisa is pretty safe considering how she swept with the elders in her heat.
Horrible draw! I think the qualifiers should be all of the 2nd semi, and none of the 1rst.
I don’t get the hate for ‘Suave’ that people have expressed lately. It really isn’t that generic and for a reggaton song its decent and gets people dancing especially at the end!
For me it is
And many more
And the worst of all?
This horn effect used 5 years ago
It would have easily won in 2016 and I would love It, but not in 2022
The Spanish lyrics are underwhelming is the biggest problem for me, being a Spanish speaker. But it can be catchy, I’ll admit
As a Spanish speaker, the lyrics sound very cliché and old-fashioned :/
Anybody knows how the voting will work with the group ages if there’s only 4 entries?
I think same like for heats – so there will be only revealing of how people were voting and who’s got 12 points ( but i am not sure)
The 8 age groups (including televotes) gives their 5-8-10-12 points with a total of 35 points given.
The age groups can heart vote 5 times per entry.
If two entries gets the same number of points the most number of total votes will determine the results.
What happened if in total votes there is a tie? I do not think so that it would happen but i am just curious
Who I want:
Anna and Danne
Lisa and Theoz
Who I think will qualify:
Anna and Alvaro
Lisa and Theoz
Tone is the lock probably. She deserves it more than anybody.
Between Anna and Alvaro can be close I think.
Anything can happen I feel. All 4 have some chances.
I think one slot could be between Theoz and Cazzi. Young vote. And then between Lillasyster and Lisa for the other slot.
I think both anna and tone are locked
Also Lisa is propably locked cuz as you saw in heat 3 she killed the vote with the categories 40+
So it might be a battle between Cazzi and Theoz who will propably get support from the kids
Anna will win the first semi, Tone and Alvaro fighting for second. But I also would not rule out Danne even though I think he got through because of the televote in the first heat.
Second semi is more open, in an ideal world it’d be Cazzi and Theoz, but I have a feeling Lisa might come through over Cazzi.
Please let Anna qualify…
Im supporting Tone Sekelius in the semi final 1 but Im afraid it will be Alvaro going to the final instead of Tone unfortunately :/
4) Lillasyster/Lisa Miskovsky
I hope it will be Anna, Tone, Lisa and Lillasyster. I dont understand all Theoz-hype, it sounds like Dannys song from last year
Like LIAMOO and Eric Saade last year? 😉
Liamoo sounds more like Benjamin Ingrosso
But better 193827x
Prediction : Anna Bergendahl/Tone sekelius from the first one and Cazzi Opeia/Theoz from the second one
That’s what I’m thinking. I really like Alvaro too, but I don’t think he will go through, realistically.
