Last week saw a record number of viewers tune into Melodifestivalen for a Semi Final since the Semi Final Tour began in 2002. A whopping 3.65 million people tuned into the live show from Gothenburg. The interval act “Indie Club” – a Bollywood take on Danny Saucedo’s Melodifestivalen favourite “In Da Club” is being hailed as one of the best in the show’s history. Created and performed by 4 Elements Dance Productions you can see why it was so popular.
