A long season of nation finals is coming to an end with one last Saturday! Seems like just yesterday we heard those familiar FIKmas bells in the distance. Starting next week, however, we will all need to find other things to do with our weekends. Like socializing…or going outside. *shudders* But let’s focus on the positive and take solace in one last show tonight. Time to get out the balloons, the tacky costumes and watch the final of Melodifestivalen 2019!
🇸🇪 Sweden – Melodifestivalen
Show: Melodifestivalen — Final
When: 20:00 – 22.00 (CET)
Where to watch: SVT or their official livestream.
Last week’s round of second chances completed the final line-up! And what a line-up it is…There are newcomers like Malou Prytz and Mohombi along with Ingrosso’s very own mini-me, Bishara. But that’s not all! Order now and you get previous Melodifestivalen winners Anna Bergendahl and Arvingarna free of charge! They even throw in a few “Close, but no cigar” runner-ups from previous years like Nano and Jon Henrik Fjällgren. The hype is certainly growing bigger (than us) each day for John Lundvik, who might just take the trophy home tonight, but Hanna Ferm & LIAMOO are there to make it harder for him with some good old fashioned “Will They or Won’t They” drama!
One slight change to the semi-final formula: an international panel of juries now get to rank and rate the songs and their scores make up 50% of the result. The app and televoting results have been notoriously evenly split in the past few years so getting decent scores from the juries might make all the difference here! For tonight’s running order (and links to semi-final performances of each act) check the list down below:
- Jon Henrik Fjällgren – “Norrsken (Goeksegh)”
- Lisa Ajax – “Torn”
- Mohombi – “Hello”
- Lina Hedlund – “Victorious”
- Bishara – “On My Own”
- Anna Bergendahl – “Ashes to Ashes”
- Nano – “Chasing Rivers”
- Hanna Ferm & LIAMOO – “Hold You”
- Malou Prytz – “I Do Me”
- John Lundvik – “Too Late for Love”
- Wiktoria – “Not with Me”
- Arvingarna – “I Do”
Who is your favourite in the final? Who do you think will win Melodifestivalen 2019? Don’t you think Lynda Woodruff and Sarah Dawn Finer look kinda similar? Most importantly, will we see Klitos Klitou again?
