Melodifestivalen 2007 semifinals

The semifinals for Melodifestivalen 2007 began on 3 February 2007. There were five semifinals in Jönköping, Gothenburg, Örnsköldsvik, Gävle and Nyköping (second chance round) leading up to the final at the Globen on 10 March, 2007.

Preselection

The deadline for the submission of songs was 19 September, 2006, and 3,234 songs were submitted [1], falling short of the 2006 record. The titles and composers of the 28 semifinalists (the exceptions being the wildcards) were announced on October 10, 2006. "More Than A Girl", composed by Ulf Lindström, Agnes Carlsson and Johan Ekhé was disqualified on October 13, 2006, as Carlsson had publicly stated that she had composed the song, which could have affected the impartiality of the jury [2]. "Alla kan bli stjärnor" was disqualified on October 16 2006, as one of the composers, Sebastian Fronda, refused to sing the song in the competition[3]. The two disqualified songs were replaced by "Allt vi en gång trodde på" and "Cara mia". On 1 November 2006, Kristian Luuk was confirmed as host for all six rounds of the competition. The performers of the first 28 selected songs were announced on 28 November 2006. The wildcards were announced on 26 December 2006 – they were Uno & Irma, The Ark, Sebastian Karlsson and Magnus Uggla.

Changes to Second Chance round

On 15 August 2006 SVT announced that the Second Chance round, which had traditionally taken place on the Sunday after the last semifinal, would be turned into a full Saturday night show [4]. This means that Melodifestivalen 2007 will be a six-week competition, rather than the five-week event it has been in recent years.

As well as turning the Second Chance round into a main show in an arena, the voting for it has also been changed. A knock-out system will be introduced whereby each of the eight artists are split into four groups of two, and the voters can vote for their favourite in each pair. The four winners go through to a second round, where they will be paired off again, with the winners of each pairing going through to the final.
