Our beloved, HANDSOME and charming Måns Zelmerlöw …. just now took home the victory in 60th Eurovision Song Contest in Vienna.

Our 6th win; first win was “Waterloo” and ABBA, Brighton 1974 – the last was Loreen with “Euphoria” 2012 Baku, Azerbaijan. And only 40 min ago Måns in Vienna.

Here is the winning song “Heroes”

  1. Thank you for the link! I heard Sweden won but not the song.

    I am one of many who grew up in Britain watching Eurovision every year as a fun event. I co-opted my husband when we married and we developed our own points system to decide who our top three were. Then the kids came along and they had an annual treat getting to stay up late watching, feasting and voting. It was great! And then we moved to America and had to give up our family Eurovision tradition. It’s one of the few TV things I miss from the UK.

    • Laura, I love the European song contest … this year Australia was in it to – because they have broadcast the problem in over 30 years – so this year, because it was 60th Anniversary they were in invited – China was watching for the first time too. I think it’s great that so many countries with all their difficulties can for one evening be united in song and music. Fantastic. Maybe USA will broadcast eventual too.

  2. Congratulations, Miss Sweden 🙂 I knew you’d be loving this! Great number 🙂
    Dashing off to Nottingham this afternoon (problems for Lisa) so won’t be around much. Look after yourself 🙂 Victory hugs!

  3. Oh, I had missed this, we had even forgotten that the final was yesterday evening (perhaps because The Netherlands didn’t make it to the final), but hey, this is great news, it’s always nice to see when it goes well for Sweden! And I like the song! Congratulations! 🙂

    • it was a great show, Gunilla … this year – only the 3 boring program leaders that was very boring. Italy was my favorite beside Måns and they came 3rd.
      Last year Netherlands did very good. Yes, it’s great when Sweden wins anything, the heart goes even more blue and yellow then.
