New format and full results
This semi-final of Melodifestivalen had 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 had one show with eight acts. Midway through the voting window, the hosts provided the viewers with a preliminary result. After that all the app voters got an extra opportunity to vote and make their voices count once again. At the end of voting, the top four acts qualified for the Grand Final.
