Hilarious, insightful and performed with pizzazz, “Love Love Peace Peace” is the most well-received Eurovision interval act of recent memory.
Written by beloved Swedish scriptwriter Edward af Sillén and performed by Eurovision 2015 winner Måns Zelmerlöw and comedienne Petra Mede, it was a riotous guide on how to create a winning Eurovision song. Including obscure traditional instruments and wearing outré costumes helps. But it’s most important to sing about love and peace.

Love Love Peace Peace: How to win Eurovision
Nearly a year later, the “Love Love Peace Peace” interval act remains a fan favourite, with many joking that it was their real winner of Eurovision 2016. You can watch the video below — it’s always worth another viewing. But we’ve pulled out eight tips the authors say you need to slay that stage.
(1) “A powerful majestic start — maybe a battle horn of some kind.”
(2) “Drums — there has to be drums. It doesn’t hurt if the drums are played by gorgeous topless men. Alternatives? use a grandmother.”
(3) “Show the viewers your country’s ethnic background by using an old traditional folklore instrument that no one has ever heard of before.”
(4) “Nothing says winner like a violin. Trust us: Bring a violin.”
(5) Make it current “by adding a DJ who pretends to scratch.”
(6) “Costumes — you need to be memorable, something the viewers will notice.”
(7) “The song. Everything else might be important, but the song is essential. Let it be about something everyone can connect to. Love works. Peace is also a popular way to go.”
(8) “Go for it and don’t look back!”
