Almost all male final so far
So far five male artists and one female artist have qualified to the final. Last time we had only one female singer in the final was in 2013, when Louise Hoffsten sang “Only the Dead Fish Follow the Stream”.
The andra chansen currently has four female singers and two male singers.
