  1. Emmi Christensson – Icarus

This is Emmi’s first time in this competition. LED lights and heavy smoke are expected to be on stage.  According to Christer Björkman, she has a super voice which is really hot, while Emmi herself thinks that the song will stand out from the pack.

Lyrics

Stay
Listen to what I have to say
Don’t walk away
I know that you will find a way

Just open your eyeeeeeeees
Know you can riiiiiiiise

Don’t be afraid you can fly
Just like Icarus, Icarus, fly
Spread your wings you can reach for the sky, for
the sky,

‘cause the world needs a hero

So fly
like Icarusfly
‘Cause you got the power inside

Light
Don’t the let the darkness survive

Just open your eyes
Know you can rise

Don’t be afraid you can fly
Just like Icarus Icarus fly
Spread your wings
you can reach for the sky
for the sky
‘cause the world needs a hero

So fly
like Icarus, fly
‘Cause you got the power inside

So fly
Flyyyyyyy

Aaaaaah

Don’t be afraid you can fly,
Just like Icarus, Icarus fly

Spread your wings
you can reach for the sky
for the sky
‘cause the world needs a hero

So fly
like Icarus, fly
‘Cause you got the power inside
Fly

3. Felicia Olsson – “Break That Chain”

This is the second time that Felicia Olsson will participate in Melodifestivalen, as she appeared in 2013, when she was eliminated during the semi-finals. The stage will be filled with smoke in front of a green, red and gold backdrop. Christer Björkman describes this entry as being quite traditional, given its schlager pop routes. Felicia says that the song is a very strong song about relationships

Lyrics

Another bad mistake
If that is what you need now
How you feel now

What can I do
Mhmmm
What can I say

Another trip in vain
Another crash around the corner
Startin’ over

Just like a fool
Mhmmm
Beggin to lose

Coz who could ever love you more
And who could ever reach that shore
Whatever happened to the promise we made
Bound to break that chain
Bound to break that chain

No matter what you did to me
No matter what you failed to be

You know I’m never gonna turn you away
Bound to break that chain
Bound to break that chain

Whatever gets you home
Whatever makes you find the lighter
Light the fire

All I can do
Mhmmm
What can I lose

Coz who could ever love you more
And who could ever reach that shore

Whatever happened to the promise we made
Bound to break that chain
Bound to break that chain

No matter what you did to me
No matter what you failed to be

You know I’m never gonna turn you away
Bound to break that chain
Bound to break that chain

Coz who could ever
Who could ever love you more
And who could ever reach that shore

Whatever happened to the promise we made
Bound to break that chain
Bound to break that chain

No matter what you did to me
No matter what you failed to be

You know I’m never gonna turn you away
Bound to break that chain
Bound to break that chain

4. Rolandz – Fuldans

Joining Rolandz on stage, there will be Ludvig Olin (Guitar), Niclas Arn (Bass), Peter Tiverman (Guitar), Robert Olsson (Drums) and Anna-Lena Björklund and Johanna Abenius as backing vocalists. Rolandz says that the song is an expression of euphoria, joy and rhythm.

Lyrics

Susanne har jättefina tänder
Marie kan göra piruett
Men ingen av dem väcker känslor
som Anette

Hon har en stil som ingen annan
Hon dricker öl och spottar snus
Lång och låghalt sprider hon sitt ljus

En Boogie woogie brud
i Boogie woogie skrud
Som hon dansar swingdans herregud

Allting sitter snett ändå blir det rätt
När vi ger oss ut i vår duett

En boogie woogie tjej
Som inte säger nej
till en pojke som förälskat sig

Vi kan dansa hela natten lång
Det blir ett jädra hålligång

Vi dansar fuldans
Fuldans
Vi dansar fuldans
Fuldans
Vi dansar fuldans
Det blir ett jädra hålligång

Jag glömmer aldrig första dansen
Du fråga vad det var för takt
ja det är en rak fyr fyra

Och vi föstes bort från golvet
Av en vakt
Aj va fan gör du släpp tagen om na du

Du bröt mot dansens alla regler
Du kunde inte sitta still
Men man måste ju få dansa
som man vill

En Boogie woogie brud
i Boogie woogie skrud
Som hon dansar swingdans herregud

Allting sitter snett ändå blir det rätt
När vi ger oss ut i vår duett

En boogie woogie tjej
Som inte säger nej
till en pojke som förälskat sig

Vi kan dansa hela natten lång
Det blir ett jädra hålligång

Vi dansar fuldans
Fuldans
Vi dansar fuldans
Fuldans
Vi dansar fuldans
Det blir ett jädra hålligång

Vi dansar fuldans
Fuldans
Vi dansar fuldans
Fuldans
Vi dansar fuldans
Det blir ett jädra hålligång

En Boogie woogie brud
i Boogie woogie skrud
Som hon dansar swingdans herregud

Allting sitter snett ändå blir det rätt
När vi ger oss ut i vår duett

En boogie woogie tjej
Som inte säger nej
till en pojke som förälskat sig

Vi kan dansa hela natten lång
Det blir ett jädra hålligång

Vi dansar fuldans
Fuldans
Vi dansar fuldans
Fuldans

Vi dansar fuldans
Det blir ett jädra hålligång
Det blir ett jädra hålligång

5.Olivia Eliasson – “Never Learn”

Olivia is another debutante for this edition, however we can be sure that she will be inspired by former contestant Wiktoria as they both work with the same company. Jesper Eriksson, Michael Nunez, Clive Rudd and Evgueni Potechkin will dance on stage with Olivia. A blue backdrop is expected on stage. According to Christer Björkman, this is a modern radio-friendly pop moving at a decent pace, while Olivia Eliasson says that it’s a pop and tropical house style song.

Lyrics

What I’ve learned is
I should be staying on safe ground

What I do is
I stand too close to the edge all the time

I wanna make mistakes and lose myself to you
while I’m young
I know the risk I take will hurt but pain it matters
somehow

I would be safer with my feet on the ground
I would be wiser without losing my mind

Oooooh but to live you gotta crash and burn
That’s ok cause I will never learn
I will never learn

Ooooh
Ooooh
Ooooh
I will never learn

Ooooh
Ooooh
Ooooh

What I’ve heard is
I should be playing it safe now
Nooooow

What I know is
I’d never be the one to back down
Noooo

I would be safer with my feet on the ground
I would be wiser without you by my side

Ooooh but to live you gotta crash and burn
That’s ok cause I will never learn
I will never learn

Ooooh
Ooooh
Ooooh
I will never learn

Ooooh
Ooooh
Ooooh

I would be safer with my feet on the ground
I would be wiser without you by my side

Ooooh but to live you gotta crash and burn
That’s ok cause I will never learn
I will never learn

Ooooh
Ooooh
Ooooh

I will never learn

Ooooh
Ooooh
Ooooh

I wanna make mistakes and lose myself to you
while I’m young

6. Felix Sandman  – Every Single Day 

Felix was part of FO&O who participated in last year’s competition. On stage, we should expect a cool backdrop. According to Christer Björkman, it’s a great ballad. Felix says that his song has a personal touch as well as an international theme, as it was written in LA and recorded there by a bunch of really talented young American guys who share his outlook on life.

Lyrics

I’m so sorry for calling you at this time
I’m w-watching this video that reminded me
Of the movies we used to see
The people we used to be

I’m who-wondering how are your mum and dad
Cause my-mine keep on asking whatever happened to

The girl that I used to see
How happy I used to be
Do you ever think of me

Ever since you left
I can’t get out of bed
It’s true
What’s a heart supposed to do
With a hole the size of you

Wish I could undo the pain
But my heart can’t catch a break
I think about you every single day

I kept all of the pictures you used to draw
I still drink from the cup you stole from the bar and I
I swear I can taste your lips
Every morning with every sip

I ho-hope you don’t see me when I go out
I don’t think you’d approve of who I am right now

I’m not who I used to be
That’s the truth baby truthfully
Do you ever think of me

Ever since you left I can’t get out of bed
It’s true
What’s a heart supposed to do
With a hole the size of you

Wish I could undo the pain
But my heart can’t catch a break
I think about you every single day

I get in my car and drive through the dark
I speed past the exit that leads to your house

And wonder what you’re doing now
Are you thinking ‘bout me

What’s a heart supposed to do
With a hole the size of you
Wish I could undo the pain

But my heart can’t catch a break
I think about you every single day

7. Mariette – For You

The 2009 winner of Idol is back on the Melodifestivalen stage for the 3rd time. Heavy smoke is expected on stage.  Christer Björkman comments that there is a similarity with what Mariette did last year. The song is very modern pop. A good song, simply. Mariette says that her choreographer Zain Odelstål has an absolutely magical visual idea in mind. It’s so innovative, he’s gonna top what she have done before!

Lyrics

I used to hang with the ghosts and the monsters under my bed
Til one day mama told me baby they’re all in your head

Never was afraid of anything
Strange or unfamiliar

But I know I should be running
know I should be running now

I feel your love coming at me like a train on a track
No escape no hiding no looking back

I’m the fool you’re the king I’ll do anything
For you for you for you

You got my heart beat pounding like I’m under attack
Gotta catch my breath before it all goes black

I’m the fool you’re the king I’ll do anything
For you for you for you for you for you

Must have drugged me with your kisses I can tell
Cause I can’t control myself I’m under your spell

I’m super aware of everything
Going on but I can’t move

And I know I should be running
know I should be running now

I feel your love coming at me like a train on a track
No escape no hiding no looking back

I’m the fool you’re the king I’ll do anything
For you for you for you

You got my heart beat pounding like I’m under attack
Gotta catch my breath before it all goes black

I’m the fool you’re the king I’ll do anything
For you for you for you for you for you

I’ll do anything for you

So damn damn irresistible
So damn irresponsible
I know I know I know I know
So damn irresponsible
So damn irresponsible

I feel your love coming at me like a train on a track
No escape no hiding no looking back

I’m the fool you’re the king I’ll do anything
For you for you for you

I feel your love coming at me like a train on a track
No escape no hiding no looking back

I’m the fool you’re the king I’ll do anything
For you for you for you
For you for you

I’m the fool you’re the king I’ll do anything
For you for you for you for you for you

For you for you for you for you for you
