Who will take that Second Chance?

No Karlstad for me this week, I'm taking a well-earned week off travelling around the country. "Andra Chansen", or second chance, is a great competition to miss, if you are going to miss one, as it works best in the tv sofa at home. For thos unfamiliar to the Melodifestival competition, this is where the songs that came third and fourth in the four semi-finals fight it out for the two last tickets to the final.

So, no new songs, and in general no huge changes to the way the songs are presented either. The eight songs fighting it out this week are:

1. "You" – Robin Stjernberg

2. "Vi kommer aldrig att förlora" – Eric Gadd

3. "Hon har inte" – Caroline af Ugglas

4. "Jalla Dansa Sawa" – Behrang Miri

5. "Hello Goodbye" – Erik Segerstedt & Tone Damli

6. "Begging" – Anton Ewald

7. "Burning Flags" – Cookies N Beans

8. "In And Out Of Love" – Martin Rolinski

Unlike the past few years, there won't be any duels until the second half of the programme. So viewers will first see all eight songs and then vote on them all. The top five songs will then go on to the next round. Two songs will then fight it out in one duel, followed by another duel, and one song will be knocked out. The duels will consist of the song with the most votes against the song in third place, and the song in second place against the song in forth. Get it?

The winners of both duels will then qualify for next week's final in Stockholm.

Predicting Andra Chansen is a nightmare. But I'll still give it a go...

I think the top five will be:

Robin Stjernberg, Anton Ewald, Behrang Miri, Caroline af Ugglas and Martin Rolinski.

And the two finalists will be:

Behrang Miri and Anton Ewald.

Phew!
