Mohombi and Wiktoria come through difficult Melodifestivalen show

Mohombi and Wiktoria are the first two participants to qualify for the final in Stockholm’s Friends Arena. Anna Bergendahl and Nano have made it to the Andra Chansen round. 

Wiktoria’s was the first named to the final on March 9. Her song “Not With Me” struck the right note with the Swedish audience prompting her advancement tonight. Joining her in the final is Mohombi with his song “Hello”. Gaining a second shot at the final are Nano, who narrowly lost to Robin Bengtsson in 2017, and Anna Bergendahl who has previously represented Sweden in 2010.

As he took the stage for a second time, Mohombi yelled to the audience “gone is good but home is best”, a reference to his growing career outside of Sweden. The Swedish audience welcomed him home with a direct qualification to the final.

Semifinal 2 is next Saturday at Malmö Arena. The broadcast begins at 20:00 CET on SVT and SVTPlay. Andra Chansen will be on March 2 at Rosvalla Arena in Nyköping.
