On Friday evening Stockholm’s Ericsson Globe hosted a huge party. It wasn’t only the grand final of Swedish Idol. It was also a celebration marking the show’s 10th anniversary. 

Eurovision fans outside of Sweden may not watch the show, but they owe some of their favourite #melfest and Eurovision stars to it. During the last ten seasons Idol has brought us Loreen, Måns Zelmerlöw, Danny Saucedo, Anna Bergendahl, Darin and Agnes, among others.

The final came with plenty of fireworks — and some major star power.  Danny Saucedo and Darin opened the show. Although Agnes and Loreen weren’t present, producers paid tribute to them in the medley.

In addition, Carola joined the party and sang “Hallelujah” (to the wind machine?):

Melodifestivalen 2015 is only two months away, and soon we’ll see how the latest Idol graduates fare. We are so excited!

Still Loreen and Robin Stjernberg are the finest artist to have come out of it all … and Agnes too … couldn’t really care less for anybody else.
