    Thursday afternoon the artists had their first rehearsals ahead of the 2. Semi-Final of Melodifestivalen 2017 in Malmö. In the evening they walked the red carpet before attending the traditionel Welcome party at Malmö Town Hall. We had a talk with Mariette, who’s back in the contest after her 3. place in 2015 with ‘Don’t stop believing’.

    Mariette participates with her entry ‘A million years’ written by Thomas G:son, Johanna Jansson, Peter Boström Jenny Hansson and Mariette herself.

    Lyrics

    I’ll never give up
    I’ll never back down

    Not gonna lose faith
    as long as you’re around

    Not even in a million years
    our eyes might cry once in awhile
    but we will never break
    and baby I’ll wait forever

    And you haven’t really tried to make it right
    but that’s ok
    ‘cause I could wait a million years

    Whether you’re out
    or whether you’re in
    baby I’ll never let you go

    Whether you lose
    or whether you win
    baby can’t you see

    Can’t you see me through the tears
    I could wait a million years
    I could wait a million years

    In my heart I know
    I will never let you go
    baby I’ll never let you go

    Baby I’ll never let you go

    Baby I’ll never let you go

    I know you need a little time to wipe your fears away
    but baby I’ll wait forever

    And I know that you will understand the promises I made
    that I could wait a million years

    Whether you’re out
    or whether you’re in
    baby I’ll never let you go

    Whether you lose
    or whether you win
    baby can’t you see

    Can’t you see me through the tears
    I could wait a million years
    I could wait a million years

    In my heart I know
    I will never let you go
    baby I’ll never let you go

    Go
    Huuuh

    Baby I’ll never let you go

    Huuuh

    Baby I’ll never let you go

    Go
    never let you go

    Baby I’ll never let you go

    Whether you lose
    or whether you win
