Sweden: YOHIO and Ellen Benediktson to final

Tonight the first semifinal of Melodifestivalen was held in Malmö. Out of 8 competing entries, two went directly to the final and two went to the second chance.

The lucky winners of the night who got a ticket to the final was YOHIO with his entry To the End and Ellen Benediktson with her entry Songbird

To the second chance, the Swedish voters sent Linus Svenning with his song Bröder and Helena Paparizou with her song Survivor.

That means that these entries had to go home:

5. Elisa LindströmCasanova

6. Alvaro EstrellaBedroom

7. Mahan MoinAleo

8. Sylvester SchlegelBygdens son

Next Saturday, in the second semifinal, we will get two more finalists and two more second chance-competitors.
