The favourites to win
It's the widest open Melodifestivalen has been for a long time however certain entries have started to emerge from the pack as favourites. Wiktoria is the favourite with most bookies and is the highest on Spotify as of now. Nano is favoured by Paddy Power and has been rising on Spotify throughout the week so could well challenge for the victory. Other favourites include Jon Henrik Fjällgren and Robin Bengtsson.

I have a terrible feeling Anton will be top three with an outside chance of winning.

Robin would be fantastic. Nano would be satisfactory.

Wictoria would be such a let down, it's so bloody shril and she can't hold a tune. She's likely to win the televote but I part-suspect the juries won't be enthralled? If she pips it, this would the second consecutive year that Sweden don't even come close to my top ten Eurovision.

On the contrary for me, Wiktoria would give us a stunning melody and exciting pop song for Sweden, I'd definitely be behind that and looking at that genrep, it's about my only good option.

Nano would be alright, it's certainly anthemic but would feel a little underwhelming.

The next three would be absolutely intolerable. I am so bored of the prospect of I Can't Go On, while his song last year was rousing, this one is lifeless to the core and I blame that all on the lyrics, they have no kick to them whatsoever and just feel embarrassing to listen to. Anton and Benjamin would be even worse for being clones of some of the styles of pop music I hate most.

Considering that Ace and Mariette seem to be out of it I'm placing myself firmly on team Wiktoria. I can really see a situation arising like 2015 where the standard in the main contest is found so wanting that even Sweden's B+/A- game is enough for them to snatch the win almost on autopilot (and frankly I've got many reasons to suspect that the dancing Gorilla isn't the vote magnet everyone thinks it is).

Yeah out of those contenders it definitely should be Wiktoria (yes, with a k, ScottyEm) today. No other option really. Still feeling Anton has a big chance to slay.

Getting the spelling of her name wrong does probably prove I'm somewhat disinterested in her song then. It's by no means the worst, i just think my "meh" attitude towards it is heightened by the fact there are better songs IMO.

And to rub salt... I love Good Lovin. Although Ingrosso is the weakest link.

The fact that Robin isn't going to walk this is a complete travesty.

Here in the arena! Loads of support and signs for Nano (argh). Even kids seem to be raving over him for some reason!

Maybe he'll impress me more live.

Really rooting for Wiktoria but not expecting her to win by any means.

Maybe because I had lower expectations for him, but Jon Henrik was my standout performance live in the arena last night! Nano and Wiktoria seemed to have about the same levels of support, and there were lots of kids supporting the young boys and Lisa.

I'm seeing tons of support for Lisa from young kids too, quite hilarious considering the (original) lyrics! I guess the F-bomb isn't really a problem here!

I can't see a single banner or poster in here for poor Ace drama.gif

I remember reading that they don't really have any censoring of rude language in Sweden, to the point where Swedes don't really realize how filthy their language is sometimes!
