MF 2013: CHANGES IN SECOND CHANCE
Vasil Dimitrov (Bulgaria)
Melodifestivalen’s 2013 Second Chance show is under some changes as SVT announced aiming to distribute in a fair way the votes to the artists. In the first part of the show on March 2nd, the artists will perform their songs and the public will vote for them. Televoting winner will duel in the final with the fourth winner of public’s choice accordingly the second and the third.
Confusing enough for you? Well Sean Banan is the example of unfair voting? In Melodifestivalen 2012 he got more votes than the qualifiers Top Cats and lost from Thorsten Flinck and Revolutionsorkestern in one of the Second Chance duels. If you consider the new draw rule which reminds us the SVT tactics in the Melodifestivaln project another complicated and somehow unclear rule is implied – this time only to their national selection.
