Sweden’s Melodifestivalen, which decides the nation’s Eurovision 2017 song, returned with the first of its live shows from Gothenburg this evening. Two acts made it directly to the final on 11th March while the songs in third and fourth place will compete again in the Second Chance show on 4th March. Read on to find out who made it.
Melfest returned with an all star presenting line up helmed by Hasse Andersson, David Lindgren and Clara Henry who opened the show with the parody musical numbers we have come to expect from Sweden.
