Key takeaways

First of all, it's important to remember that Melodifestivalen recently moved to a system by which qualifiers are determined by POINTS, rather than number of raw votes. Points are awarded by the number of votes received by each age group. This was done to mitigate the perception that the app vote unfairly favoured young performers, as their fans are traditionally more app-savvy.

Semi Final One

78 Danny Saucedo
72 Arvingarna
68 Paul Rey
48 Lillasyster
38 Jessica Andersson
29 Kadiatou
11 Nathalie Brydolf

On RAW VOTES, Paul Rey would have beaten Arvingarna into AC. He actually topped the voting among the 3-9 and 10-15 voting demographics. Points-wise, Arvingarna won the 60-74, 75+ and televoting, nudging them ahead.

It wasn't particularly close for poor JessAn, who got her best result (8 points/3rd) with the 60-74 and 75+ demographics. Otherwise she was fairly consistently 5th.


Semi Final Two

92 Dotter
68 Anton Ewald
52 Eva Rydberg & Ewa Roos
47 Frida Green
44 Patrik Jean
30 WAHL feat. SAMI
11 Julia Alfrida

Dotter smashed this one, topping every demographic except 75+ and televoters, who went for Eva/Ewa.

Patrik Jean was third on raw votes, while Eva and Ewa were only 5th!


Semi Final Three

94 Tusse
62 Charlotte Perrelli
60 Alvaro Estrella
58 Klara Hammarström
34 Emil Assergård
18 Mustasch
18 Elisa

A close shave! Charlotte was a mere 2 points away from being pushed down to AC by Alvaro Estella, of all people!

She did finish a comfortable second on the raw vote though.

Tusse obviously smashed it here, although curiously 3-9 year olds favoured Klara Hammarström.


Semi Final Four

94 The Mamas
72 Eric Saade
52 Efraim Leo
51 Clara Klingenström
40 Tess Merkel
21 lovad
14 Sannex

Despite all his hype, Eric was trounced by the Mamas here. They also topped the raw vote and won every demographic except telephone voters, who mysteriously went for Clara.

Speaking of, just call her Shirley! Clara was only 4th in her heat behind rubbish old Efraim.

Poor Tess was also never really in contention.


AC

In AC the duels were decided based on who won the most age groups.

7-1 Alvaro vs Lillasyster
1-7 Frida Green vs Paul Rey
3-5 Eva/Ewa vs Clara
8-0 Klara vs Efraim

If it was decided on raw votes, the top four qualifiers would have been:

1.3m Alvaro Estrella
1.2m Clara Klingenström
1.2m Paul Rey
1.1m Eva Rydberg & Ewa Roos

So bizarrely it would have been Klara who missed out. Boring Paul really has that youth vote locked down!


Finalen

A walkover. Tusse topped every possible voting metric.

Poor STILL YOUNG Charlotte scored ZERO POINTS from all the under 35 demographics. :D/:(

So actually, while the points didn't get her terribly close, Jessica can hold her head up high with by far the highest number of votes for 5th, and enough to have gotten her to third in a less competitive heat.

I think we knew already, but whew what a landslide for Tusse in both heat and especially final. When was the last time a MF winner won so decisively? This is exactly the reason why I don't think we should discount him in May AT ALL. Nobody even came close, in what was a strong field.

Interesting that Eric never really was a contender, despite what the show tried to make us believe. It was actually The Mamas all along - I don't really feel the show alluded to their success this year much tbh.

The GAY WICKED WHISPERS that the E&E vs Clara duel in AC got BY FAR the most votes proved to be absolute RUBBISH after all.

Also interesting that despite her great final position, Clara with a C wasn't actually as popular as we anticipated. It was actually Klara with a K who we were underrating!

John Lundvik also swept the board in fairness, in some ways even moreso (clean sweep of the juries + public votes)

He didn't win every app vote demographic though, he was only 6th with 3-9 year olds and 3rd with 10-15 year olds.

It's interesting that Spotify is NOT a perfect indicator of popularity. Lillasyster broke big on Streaming while Paul flopped, but he did far better in the votes in his heat.

Same with The Mamas easily outperforming Eric in the heat and final.

MAMA POWER aside, the generic pretty boys are still proving pretty hard to beat on raw votes. :side-eye: Thank God for the points system!

Kadiatou came SECOND PLACE in the voters from the illustrious 3-9 year old age group! :disco:

GAGGED at all those Swedish LITTLE TOTS flopping around their living rooms inspired by the One Touch DEAD FISH routine :disco:

It IS quite heartening that we now have evidence that suggests if the music career doesn't work out for BEACON of CHARISMA Kadiatou :eyes: her local nursery school will likely welcome her with OPEN ARMS in regards to future employment :disco:

No one has gotten a bigger percentage of votes in the final since the app voting began, not even Frans. Though I believe Mans had a higher share in his SF.

The only time an act has won all televoting groups before this was Arvingarna in 1993.
