Sweden picks last songs for 2022 Melodifestivalen final

Melodifestivalen 2022

The fifth and final qualifying heat of the 2022 Swedish Melodifestivalen is over and SVT has decided on the line-up for the show that will pick a song for the 2022 Eurovision Song Contest.

Tonight was what used to be called the ‘second chance’ contest, but is now rebranded as the semi-final, eight songs that didn’t quite cut it with either the jury or the televoters (or both) in recent weeks. There were four chances to lose the grand final on offer in a show beamed live from Stockholm’s Friends Arena.

The third- and fourth-placed songs from each of the previous four heats were placed into two groups. No differences were made on whether the entries placed third or fourth in their respective heats.

As a bonus, SVT donated 200,000 Euros from the televoting proceeds to support causes battling the Russian war in Ukraine.

The top two songs from each group scored a place in the final, using the age group system. Each age group’s vote carried a score of 12, 10, 8, 5, 3 and 1.The full results were not shown on screen.
