After the fourth heat of Melodifestivalen 2022, we now move on to the Semi-Finals round of the competition. Today, Oscar Zia, the host of this year’s competition, hosted the draw of the allocation alongside the show’s producer Karin Gunnarsson and project manager Anette Brattström to determine the allocation of the semi-finalists.
Eight Participants, Two Semi-Final Groups, Four Acts to the Final
The eight finalists were split into two groups, and the position of each act was then determined by a draw, with the results as follows:
|1||Tone Sekelius||“My Way”||2|
|4||Anna Bergendahl||“Higher Power”||4|
|1||Theoz||“Som du vill”||1|
|2||Lisa Miskovsky||“Best To Come”||3|
|3||Lillasyster||“Till Our Days Are Over”||4|
|4||Cazzi Opeia||“I Can’t Get Enough”||3|
The two acts with the highest points from the voting groups in each Semi-Final will then advance to the Final on the 12th of March.
