Måns Zelmerlöw – Heroes


Sunday and finally a six-week tour with the Swedish Melodifestivalen to its end.

Sundays usually mean that a classic of any kind is played here, but not this sunday, today I will do a short brief recap of the time that has passed and we will play the winner of course.

Six weeks with "Schlager" music, not really my cup of tea music wise, but it has been a great time as the peoples behind this Eurovision circus are the best Sweden can offer in all plans. I must say that it has been a real challenge, were the focus have to be 100% all the time where a small mistake will be notice and it's something you can't afford. 6 weeks, 6 towns were 7 acts performed in each town and 2 went straight to final and 2 to the second chance. The 5 week we were in Helsingborg for the second chance were 8 acts have to fight in a duel to get the last 4 spots to the final. The final was at Friends Arena here in Stockholm were 12 acts have to fight over the 1 spot in Eurovision. This year I have to agree that right song won the Swedish Melodifestivalen and I believe he will have a good change to win the hole thing with a bang :)

Only one "Rock" act NEVERSTORE participated in this contest, really bad. Last year there was 2 :)
Well the final "Middle acts" was a bit more rock than normal, were the Norwegian Comedy Rock band YLVIS did a pretty cool tune and the Swedish fusion funk band "DIRTY LOOPS" did the cover of last years Swedish winner "Undo". 


Måns during rehearsals!

One of the first rehearsals where some red pyro was tested but as you can see, I got pretty red to be able to use it in TV :)
