The same concept as the previous years is used. From each preliminary round, the top-2 directly to the final, and the numbers three and four get orange light and must pass along the second chance round. That is scheduled for March 5 in Halmstad and four of the eight songs there punches by. On March 12, then finds the final place with twelve candidates, from the Friends Arena in Stockholm.
