Sweden Melodifestivalen 2020: Anna Bergendahl and Dotter to the final

Tonight the second heat of Melodifestivalen 2020 took place in Göteborg, Sweden. Seven acts performed live, and two songs qualified directly to the final: Anna Bergendahl with Kingdom Come and Dotter with Bulletproof. Two songs were selected for the second chance show

The second deltävling (heat) had two winners directly qualified for the final: Anna Bergendahl and Dotter and two acts for the "second chance": Mendez ft. Alvaro Estrella and Paul Rey.

Tonight's deltävling was held in the Scandinavium Arena in Göteborg. The arena hosted Eurovision Song Contest 1985, and was among one of the four potential candidate venues to host Eurovision Song Contest 2013, but in the end, Malmö Arena was chosen to host the contest.

Like the previous years the votes will not be unveiled before the Final of Melodifestivalen 7 March 2020.
