Only four spots remain in the grand final of Melodifestivalen 2022 and these will be taken by the qualifiers of Saturday’s 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. The top two from each semi-final will progress to the grand final on 12 March.
Ahead of the show, we asked y’all to vote for who you wanted to qualify from each semi-final.
After counting and verifying the results of both polls, we can now reveal the results.
Scroll down for full poll results.
Anna Bergendahl a favourite in Melodifestivalen 2022 semi-final one

The other act you’d like to see qualify from semi-final one if Tone Sekelius. The first ever trans participant at Melodifestivalen, Tone has captured the hearts of many. She picked up 767 votes (29.08%).
If this was the official results, we’d sadly have to say goodbye to Alvaro Estrella and Danne Stråhed.

Cazzi Opeia a favourite in Melodifestivalen 2022 semi-final two
In our semi-final two poll, 2,588 votes were cast. This was a much tighter race, but in the end it was Cazzi Opeia who came out on top. She sing’s “I Can’t Get Enough”, and it seems y’all can’t get enough of her song. Cazzi was awarded 985 votes – that’s 38.06% of the total.
Your other qualification spot would go to Theoz. The teen singer participated in the very first week of the competition, but many people still remember his catchy pop song “Som du vill” (“As you wish”). Theoz earned 805 votes (31.11%).
