New semifinalen format
The semifinalen of Melodifestivalen will have a different format this year. Where, in previous years, we saw duels between third and fourth placed songs of the heats, SVT ditched the duels a while ago. Last year, SVT opted for two groups in the semi, with two qualifiers from each group.
Now, we get one show with eight acts. Midway through the voting window, the hosts will provide the viewers with a preliminary result. After that, all app voters get another, extra opportunity to vote and make their voices count once again. At the end of voting, the top four acts will qualify for the Grand Final. There, they’ll join the following eight acts:
- Jon Henrik Fjällgren, Arc North ft. Adam Woods – Where You Are (Sávežan)
- Tone Sekelius – Rhythm Of My Show
- Maria Sur – Never Give Up
- Panetoz – On My Way
- Marcus & Martinus – Air
- Paul Rey – Royals
- Loreen – Tattoo
- Smash Into Pieces – Six Feet Under
The twelve acts will fight for the ticket to Liverpool in the Grand Final of Melodifestivalen 2023. That Grand Final will take place on 11th March in Friends Arena in Stockholm.
