Melodifestivalen 2014 finalen stockholm


Melodifestivalen 2014 was the Swedish music competition which selected Sweden's 54th entry for the Eurovision Song Contest 2014. Sanna Nielsen won the competition with the song "Undo". This was one of the closest results in Melodifestivalen history, as Nielsen beat her nearest rival, Ace Wilder, by only two points.

Contents

For the thirteenth consecutive year the competition consisted of four semi-finals, a "Second Chance" round, and a final. A total of 32 entries were divided into four semi-finals, with eight compositions in each. From each semifinal, the songs that won first and second place went directly to the final, while the songs that placed third and fourth proceeded to the Second Chance semi-final. The bottom four songs in each semifinal were eliminated from the competition. As in 2013, half of the competing entries were chosen by a selection panel from the received submissions, while the other half was selected through an invitation process by SVT. A new rule for the 2014 competition stipulated that at least 20% of the selected entries were to be written by female composers/lyricists in a full or partial capacity.
