Frederik | On 27, Feb 2016
The fourth and final semi-final of Melodifestivalen 2016 concluded tonight, with two acts qualifying for the final and two moving on to the second chance show next week.
- Eclipse – Runaways
- Dolly Style – Rollercoaster
- Martin Stenmarck – Du tar mig tillbaks
- Linda Bengtzing – Killer Girl
- Frans – If I Were Sorry
- Panetoz – Håll om mig hårt
- Molly Sandén – Youniverse
First two eliminated
Following the seven performances, the Swedish public got to vote for their favorites and the first two acts were eliminated. The Swedes decided to eliminate two Melodifestivalen veterans, Martin Stenmarck in sixth and Linda Bengtzing in seventh.
Direct to the final
The Swedes continued voting while hosts Gina Dirawi and Sarah Dawn Finer performed the Swedish national anthem with a children’s choir, while singing traditional Swedish childrens’ songs in Hebrew and Arabic, with a guest performance by Jon Henrik Fjällgren.
Dolly Style and Panetoz advanced to next week’s second chance show, while Molly Sandén and Frans got the tickets to the final. That left Eclipse in fifth place and eliminated.
Melodifestivalen returns next week with the second chance show, where the third and fourth places of the past four weeks’ shows will compete for four more spots in the final, which airs on March 12.
