Malmö, Sweden -

Malmö, Sweden's third biggest city, had the honour of hosting the 4th Swedish semi-final of Melodifestivalen 2009 on this last day of February. Eight songs were on offer again, but only two got a direct ticket for the grand final which will take place in two weeks' time in the capital Stockholm. Those two most popular songs tonight came from Agnes and Malena Ernman!

The fourth semi-final tonight featured several artists who already had lots of success in Sweden: Sarah Dawn Finer came 4th in Melodifestivalen 2007, Thorleifs are one of the most-loved dansbands in the country and the opener tonight, Agnes, won Swedish Idol in 2005. The list of participants tonight looked like this (qualifiers in bold):

  • Agnes - Love Love Love
  • Star Pilots - Higher
  • Susanne Alfvengren - Du Är Älskad Där Du Går
  • Anna Sahlene & Maria Haukaas Storeng - Killing Me Tenderly
  • Thorleifs - Sweet Kissin' In The Moonlight
  • Sarah Dawn Finer - Moving on
  • Next3 - Esta Noche
  • Malena Ernman - La Voix

Star Pilots and Sarah Dawn Finer will have another chance to qualify in the so-called Second Chance round which will take place next Saturday in Norrköping and which will decide about two more spots for the final. Another song will be elected by an international jury whose favourite tonight was Sarah Dawn Finer, after Caroline af Ugglas, Amy Diamond and Sofia in the preceding week. Out of these four singers, one get the much sought-after 11th ticket for the final in Stockholm's gigantic Globen Arena.

Agnes and Malena Ernman - the lucky two qualifiers tonight - are joining Alcazar, Emilia, H.E.A.T, Måns Zelmerlöw, Molly Sandén and E.M.D who already qualified in the three first semi-finals in Gothenburg, Skellefteå and Leksand.

    If Molly wins I hope she sings the song in Swedish in Eurovision, I think that would be different and therfore great. And also I think the song is probably gonna suck in english. ....
    I was hoping for Sarah and Malena for the final ... I think they are both great :) Sarah or Alcazar or Måns or Malena for eurovision 2009 :D And then ESC in Sweden 2010 :D report to the moderator

    I like: Malena Ernman - La Voix report to the moderator

    2 good songs. La Voix reminds me of Slovenia from 2007. I am hoping that Alcazar win the vote for Sweden this year. They have tried so many times and they look and sound great with Stay The Night. That song just makes you want to get up and dance with them. It is GREAT!!!!!!

    Good Luck Sweden
