Tonight’s second chance heat completed the Swedish line up for the final of Melodifestivalen 2012. Directly after the broadcast, Swedish head of delegation Christer Björkman attended to the task of putting the running order of the final together. David Lindgren will open the final, and Danny will close it.
There has been a lot of discussions in Swedish media and in social networks both about the standard of this year’s songs and about who will win Melodifestivalen 2012. One of the most discussed entries this year is without a doubt Mirakel sung by Björn Ranelid feat. Sara Li. This is a song that really divides the Swedish viewer’s in two groups, one that loves Björn Ranelid and his song and one who hates it. At one point Björn Ranelid fest so harassed by Swedish media that he threatened to leave the competition.
Though the Swedish viewer’s decided early which two artists who would fight for the honour to represent Sweden in Baku. Right from the start Loreen and Danny has been the two names on everyone’s lips. The running order can be one way to tell who’s going to win. During the last couple of years the winner of Melodifestivalen has started either as number 1 or number 10, with one exception, Anna Bergendahl who started as number 9 when she participated 2010.
