In the second chance, four of the competing entries went to the final. Twelve songs were in the final, and Måns Zelmerlöw won with 288 points, a new score in the national selection! The second place went to Jon Henrik Fjällgren and his entry Jag är fri (Manne Leam Frijje).

Måns Zelmerlöw

Måns Zelmerlöw is a Swedish singer and TV presenter. He started his career back in 2005, when he entered the Swedish Idol, and has been a known face for the Swedish audience ever since. Måns ended fifth in Idol, but only a year later he entered the Swedish version of Let’s Dance and won it all! In 2007, Måns entered Melodifestivalen for the first time, and ended up third. After this, he has hosted the national selection for Junior Eurovision Song Contest, Lilla Melodifestivalen, hosted the original Melodifestivalen and entered once again as a singer, and once as a songwriter.
