I just can’t believe that we already reached the third semifinal. Last week everything went like a bumpy ride and I really look forward to write a separate post of how it was to experience Melfest live for the first time ever. Sadly the third semifinal is really weak compared to the first two, but there is a bit of quality either way.
I’m sure it will be a night of surprises since the majority of songs competing are in Swedish. I was really excited about Mariette but after hearing the song, I was disappointed because probably my expectations were too high. This year she comes with an average song, thus I’m not even sure if she will make it to the final in Stockholm. Mohombi is good, not sure if better than ‘Hello’ but definitely qualifying tonight as he’s the only one with a really neat show and decent radio song. All the other songs are really average and yes, the winner of Melodifestivalen 2020 is definitely not in this semifinal.
Here is the running order for tonight’s show:
- Mariette – “Shout It Out”
- Albin Johnsén – “Livet börjar nu”
- Drängarna – “Piga och dräng”
- Amanda Aasa – “Late”
- Anis don Demina – “Vem är som oss”
- Faith Kakembo – “Crying Rivers”
- Mohombi – “Winners”
