TV PREVIEW: Melodifestivalen 2018: Predictions for Andra Chansen

WHEN?: 7pm Saturday 3/3/18 on SVT (link to watch below)

WHERE?: Kristianstad

We’re very excited about the upcoming four duels that will see our eight-strong final become a dozen not least because some of our favourite songs compete again here.

  • Read on for our Andra Chansen predictions for Saturday and the best heat performances

 

DUEL 1:

Margaret In My Cabana

OR

Moncho Cuba Libre

VERDICT: Margaret has our favourite song in the whole shebang this year. Very Havana by Camila Cabello. Everything we want from our pop right now. Old-school Rihanna. When she ruled. We loved Cool Me Down, Margaret’s entry in 2016’s Polish selection and this is even better. Will the Swedes warm to an international entrant in a way they didn’t for the Norwegian Kamferdrops in Heat 1? We were surprised Moncho progressed.

DUEL 2:

Renaida All The Feels

OR

Olivia Eliasson Never Learn

VERDICT:

Two uptempo and dancetastic songs which are well-performed. Renaida cooler for us. Just.

DUEL 3:

Mimi Werner Songburning

OR

Felix Sandman Every Single Day

VERDICT:

The closest 1 for us. This is Mimi’s best MF entry but the songwriting of Every Single Day is better. Felix‘s performance was a little flat however. And why was he singing into a hairdryer? Schoolboy error.

DUEL 4:

Sigrid Bernsen Patrick Swayze

OR

Mendez Every Day

VERDICT:

Mendez has much the better song but his Heat 3 singing and dancing was weak. We love Icona Pop and Sigrid gives it good performance but its rather sunk by its predictable lyric.
