With four songs qualifying from the semifinal tonight, the final is now complete in Sweden. SVT have now revealed the running order.
Jon Henrik Fjällgren to open, Paul Rey to close the Melodifestivalen final
A total of twelve acts will be taking to the stage in Friends Arena in Stockholm next week. Opening the final is Melfest veteran Jon Henrik Fjällgren, alongside Arc North and Adam Woods. Interestingly, the SVT producers have decided to put the other direct qualifier from the first deltävling on at #2: Tone Sekelius.
Hot favourite for the victory is former Eurovision winner Loreen. She’ll be performing as #10 in the grand final. Only THEOZ and Paul Rey will go on after her. Marcus & Martinus, the other favourite for victory, are at #4.
- Jon Henrik Fjällgren, Arc North ft. Adam Woods – Where You Are (Sávežan)
- Tone Sekelius – Rhythm of My Show
- Mariette – One Day

The previous two Melodifestivalen winners performed as #10 and #7 in the final. Conveniently, Smash Into Pieces and Loreen are also the streaming champions of this year’s competition. Is the final showdown going to be a repeat of the fourth deltävling?
