A few minutes ago the first semi-final of Melodifestivalen completed. Wiktoria and Mohombi got the tickets for the Final, whilst Nano and Anna Bergendahl will have to compete once again at the Second Chance Round. Arja Saijonmaa, High15 and Zeana feat. Anis Don Demina’s journey ended tonight.
Wiktoria delivered her powerful ballad amazingly. The rain above her gave her appearance exactly the drama she wanted. Mohombi’s return to Melodifestivalen was pretty awesome due to the use of the mirror/screen as his background. His uptempo song sure deserved the spot to the final.
Nano didn’t manage to go again direct to the final, but his hopes are still there. His song placed 3/4 and we’ll listen to it again in one month from today. Same, for Anna Bergedahl, with her catchy song “Ashes To Ashes”.
Sarah Dawn Finer, Eric Saade, Marika Carlsson and Kodjo Akolor do a great job at the presentation of the semi-final. One of the best moments of the night was for sure the medley of the four winning entries of Israel by the hosts. The night saw a new record of votes – 7.158.330 votes. Next semi-final is next week when we are going to see the next seven artists.
