Melodifestivalen 2017: Who Will Qualify From Semi-final 2?

Full disclosure here: semi-final 2 is the least competitive semi-final of Melodifestivalen 2017. The two clear front-runners (based on their past catalogue, hype, name recognition, and the way the voting app swayed the results, in 2016, favourably towards youth and contemporary pop) are Lisa Ajax and Benjamin Ingrosso. Though Oscar Zia's invented-loud backing track and incessantly choppy camera work plus SVT's sabotage of Lisa in the running order swayed things towards the former in the finals, it is important to remember that Lisa won her semi-final when up against Oscar in 2016. She's also a consistently strong artist in the calibre of her releases and getting content out in a timely manner. Benjamin Ingrosso has all the makings of a Dark Horse in this semi-final, and perhaps even in the overall contest. There's great potential in his past releases, "Crystal Clear" in particular, and he's also from the same label as Zara Larsson. Smells like we can dare to hope for some expensive staging with this entry...
