Melodifestivalen 2016 kick’s off tonight at the Scandinavium in Gothenburg. Gina Dirawi is back to host her third Melodifestivalen tour and her co-host for this week is Eurovision Song Contest 2016 co-host Petra Mede. After this week’s disqualification of Anna Book and her entry of “Himmel for tva”, only six entries will take part tonight instead of the normal seven. Anna Book will perform the disqualified entry as part of one of the interval acts.
Therefore, tonight’s running order is:
- Samir & Viktor “Bada nakna”
- Pernilla Andersson “Mitt guld”
- Mimi Werner “Ain’t No Good”
- Albin & Mattias “Rik”
- Robin Bengtsson “Constellation Prize”
- Ace Wilder “Don’t Worry”
In Sweden, the show is broadcast on SVT1 at 20:00CET. Outside of Sweden, the show can be seen via SVTplay.
