STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN – The 2015 edition of Melodifestivalen is over and SVT revealed the complete voting results from all semifinals, second chance and the final. The highlights of the voting have as follow:
First we noticed that Måns Zelmerlöw won the final of the show with a landslide victory over Jon Henrik Fjällgren. We also noticed that in the second semifinal Magnus won the voting with a small difference over Samir & Viktor who also proceeded to the final but through Andra Chansen. Thirdly, we noticed that Eric Saade got the biggest voting score amongst all semifinals as he got 36,71% a record which is kept by YOHIO in 2013 with 47,2%.
Måns Zelmerlöw had the biggest margin with the second qualifier to the final, in this year’s semifinals as he got 771,423 votes in his semifinal over 385,521 by JTR. Måns Zelmerlöw also got the second highest tele voting in the history of Melodifestivalen with 545,601 in the final a record which is kept by Loreen in 2012 with 670,551 votes.
There are also serious concerns regarding the Melodifestivalen app as it didn’t work in the first semifinal and the final where it crashed when Jon Henrik Fjällgren performed. This influenced the results as Eric Saade got the ticket to the final, Linus Svenning and Magnus Carlsson would have got to the final as well and Mariette with Isa would have gone to Andra Chansen and JTR would never go to the final in either second chance or direct qualification.
