Melodifestivalen 2015: Running Order Published!

Aftonbladet described the lineup as the “dullest since the test image in the state television was invented.”

Today, Christer Björkman laid his cards on the table with the publication of the all important running order and I don’t think anyone was surprised to see Måns and Saade get the pimp slots.

The running order is as follows. Follow the links for the more in depth previews. New betting-orientated previews will be published later this month to coincide with our Melodifestivalen podcast with former Eurovision commentator, Tobias Larsson, and Aftonbladet’s Torbjörn Ek.

  1. Not really sure if this tells us anything these days. Big names are pretty much always on last without fail, yet this doesn’t give them a flawless direct to final qualification record, or even a win.

  2. From last year’s successes, I reckon Linus Svenning and Ellen Benediktsson could be worth laying. Linus because he succeeded last year on the strength of the back story of the song. Ellen because she’s no longer such a fresh-faced newcomer.

  3. And I’m looking forward to Mariette’s song. Miss Li, who wrote it, is wonderful. Quirky, but with enough of a populist ear to make this a contender.

    • 100% agree Andy.Iv been backing Mariette since prices went up.I consider Miss Li the best writer here by a country mile.In fact the best writer going.
      She is also involved in the staging,the clothes and pretty much everything.What really interests me though is her ability to write hook after hook into her songs.If she has managed to do that with a quality ballad i expect a masterpiece.
      Mariette is a quality singer as well.Björkman giving her the pimp slot shows he really wants this in the final.I see this as a big challenger if its anywhere near as good as “Transformer” or “I finally found It” from Hallonbåtsflyktingen.Amazing writing.
