Yes, we’ve come to that point. It’s the end of the 2015 national final season. Just two more national finals left for tonight, but what a line-up we have! Two Nordic brothers will choose their entries: Sweden and Norway. Can the most hyped national finals of the season deliver?

Sweden

What: Melodifestivalen 2015 – Finalen
When: 20.00 CET
Where: Friends Arena in Stockholm
Broadcaster: SVT1

No national final is as popular, as big and as spectacular as Melodifestivalen. A general thought in the Eurovision world, but can Melodifestivalen actually deliver tonight? Twelve songs have made it to the final and excitement seems to be building. However, the question remains how much excitement can be built? Måns Zelmerlöw is by far the favourite with bookmakers and by far the favourite in fan polls. Can Heroes deliver? Can Heroes make it to Vienna? Or will Sweden use their magic and pull a rabbit out of a hat? Eleven countries have been chosen to vote as 50% of the result tonight. These eleven are Armenia, Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, Estonia, France, Israel, Malta, The Netherlands, Slovenia and the United Kingdom. Watch the show live from 20:00 CET on SVT1 or follow the liveblog here on escXtra.com!

The line-up for tonight:

  1. Samir & Viktor – Groupie
  2. JTR – Building It Up
  3. Dinah Nah – Make Me (La La La)
  4. Jon Henrik Fjällgren – Jag Är Fri (Manne Leam Frijje)
  5. Jessica Andersson – Can’t Hurt Me Now
  6. Måns Zelmerlöw – Heroes
  7. Linus Svenning – Forever Starts Today
  8. Isa – Don’t Stop
  9. Magnus Carlsson – Möt Mig I Gamla Stan
  10. Eric Saade – Sting
  11. Mariette – Don’t Stop Believing
  12. Hasse Andersson – Guld Och Gröna Skogar

Norway

What: Melodi Grand Prix 2015
When: 20.25 CET
Where: Oslo Spektrum in Oslo
Broadcaster: NRK1

The hype is all Sweden, but let’s not rule out their brothers to the west: Norway. Eleven songs will compete for the Norwegian ticket to Vienna. Among the participants: a praised composer, a former Eurovision winner teaming up with a nul pointer, a duo setting bookmakers on fire and a song about pizza. If you want variety, surely Norway is a good bet tonight. Mørland & Debrah Scarlett seem to be the favourites tonight, but Staysman & Lazz are chasing them if we should believe bookmakers. It’s all up for grabs in Norway! The show is 100% televote and will start at 20:25 CET.

The line-up:

  1. Erlend Bratland – Thunderstruck
  2. Raylee – Louder
  3. Tor & Bettan – All Over The World
  4. Jenny Langlo – Next To You
  5. Ira Konstantinidis – We Don’t Worry
  6. Contrazt – Heaven
  7. Marie Klåpbakken – Ta Meg Tilbake
  8. Staysman & Lazz – En Godt Stekt Pizza
  9. Mørland & Debrah Scarlett – A Monster Like Me
  10. Alexandra Joner – Cinderella
  11. Karin Park – Human Beings

Those are the last two national finals of the season. After tonight, there’s nothing but a few internal selections left, so make the most of it while you still can! Here’s a handy schedule for you to see when which show takes place exactly!

I usually listen to a lot of Eurovision music, but when I'm not, I listen to country music, schlager and pop, but mostly artists like Tina Turner, Emma, Ilse DeLange and Helene Fischer. On escXtra, you can find me doing pretty much anything that needs doing: Interviews, liveblogs or just your daily portion of news!
