Tonight: Fourth semi-final of Melodifestivalen 2014

Tonight: Fourth semi-final of Melodifestivalen 2014
  • On February 22, 2014

Last week, Oscar Zia and Ace Wilder qualified directly for the Swedish final, while Outtrigger and State of Drama got a second chance.

Tonight, another eight acts are ready in the last semi-final to fight for two spots in the final and the chance to represent Sweden at the Eurovision Song Contest 2014.


The line-up:

• Blame It On The Disco
Artist: Alcazar
Songwriters: Fredrik Kempe, David Kreuger, Hamed “K-One” Pirouzpanah

• Fight Me If You Dare
Artist: I.D.A
Songwriters: Albin Nicklasson, Nicklas Laine, Louise Frick Sveen

• Hollow

• Raise Your Hands
Artist: Ammotrack

• Hela natten

• Natural
Artist: Anton Ewald
Songwriter: John Lundvik


Earlier, clips from the rehearsals were released.


The fourth semi-final features two names from last year’s show. Anton Ewald returns, after coming fourth in the final, and will compete with the song “Natural.” Janet Leon also returns, after being eliminated from her semi-final last year. She tries again with the song “Hollow,” which is quite different from her first entry “Heartstrings.”

Linda Bengtzing is also back, competing for the fifth time. She last entered in 2011, where she reached the final and came 7th. She will try again with the song “Ta Mig.”

Perhaps the biggest surprise is the return and reunification of the group Alcazar. They have taken part four times in Melodifestivalen previously and are hugely popular with the fan crowd. They last participated in 2010 and disbanded in 2011. Now, they are back with the song “Blame It On The Disco.”


The interval acts feature the hosts performing a 9th entry and the 1980 Swedish Eurovision representative Tomas Ledin performs a medley.


The show starts at 20:00 CET and can be viewed on SVT Play.
