Ewald and Alcazar on to Melodifestivalen final

Heartthrob Anton Ewald and Melodifestivalen veterans Alcazar were both voted through to the finals in the fourth and last semi-final round of Melodifestivalen, the contest to select Sweden's entry in the Eurovision Song Contest, on Saturday.

No surprises or upsets in the last semi-final round of Melodifestivalen as second-time contender Anton Ewald sang and danced himself through to the finals with the song "Natural" along with veterans Alcazar, who entered the competition this year for the fourth time with the song "Blame it on the disco".

Ewald and Alcazar will be up against Yohio, Sanna Nielsen and Ellen Benediktsson among others in the Melodifestivalen final. Before then though there is a second chance play-off round for the entrants who placed 3rd or 4th in the four semi-final rounds.
