The third semi-final in Leksand offered a big variety of musical styles: from Velvet's dance-pop song via Maja Gullstrand's bossanova to BWO's electrogospel ballad, lots of choices were offered to the Swedish audience, but only two could directly qualify for the final (winners of this semi-final in bold):
Not only the two televote winners could be happy, Rigo & The Topaz Sound feat. Red Fox and BWO had reason to smile too as they qualified for the so-called Second Chance round which will take part in exactly two weeks' time. Both will have another opportunity to qualify for the final then. The international jury picked Sofia's Alla tonight after they favoured Caroline af Ugglas and Amy Diamond in the previous two weeks. The jury will pick another song in next week's Malmö heat - the last of the four Semi-Finals - and will then decide which of the 4 elected songs will get the 11th spot in the final.
