This morning SVT (Swedish National Broadcaster) announced the running order for the 4 semi finals of this year’s Melodifestivalen as they search for their representative at Eurovision 2013 . Like in this year’s forthcoming Eurovision – the running order is not determined by a random draw but is carried out by the shows producers. This is done to create a strong entertainment show where similiar genre of songs could not get drawn side by side thus giving each performer an opportunity to showcase their entry. A lot can sometimes be inferred by the draw as the first and last songs of each semi final tend to be well produced up tempo songs. So what were the results of the running order draw today?
