Måns Zelmerlöw has truly taken Sweden by storm. Not only did he win Melodifestivalen on his third attempt with ‘Heroes’, he also got the highest ever score with 288 points. Along the way to that total, he also broke the record set by Loreen and her song ‘Euphoria’ in 2012. Hot damn

Måns today broke another Loreen record, winning 9 out of a possible 26 categories at the Melodifestivalen 2015 web awards. Zelmerlöw won a huge range of awards including Song of the Year, Artist of the Year, Lyrics of the Year and Stage Show of the Year.

Runner-up Jon Henrik Fjällgren only won a single award for Best Stage Outfit. Third place Mariette took home the award for Best Breakthrough and fourth place Hasse Andersson took home the award for Best Props.

2011 Melodifestivalen winner Eric Saade won two awards – Best Choreography and Best Dance Move – for his song ‘Sting’.

Måns’s huge haul of awards should provide some consolation, after the ‘Heroes’ video was pulled due to a coypright claim against the digital screens used in the performance.

We are loving ‘Heroes’ with or without the screens, and hopefully the award wins will give Måns the confidence to keep on walking!

This entry has not background. Loreen also had not background, but she has good dance. Mans Zelmerlow has not good dance. Generally, this is not static performance with good background, and this is not dance performance without background. This is just weak, dull, disordered entry. Every rationally thinking person sees it.

Quite laughable that some of the Melfest songs win “Best Lyrics” when its just cliches. I do like Heroes but just like Sting and many others, the lyrics are a bit of a head scratcher.

By the way….It would be really perfect if the Swedes decided to use that adorable little guy in the laser screen of Mans’ performance in Melodifestivalen and make him a real teddy bear and sell him to the public! <3 😀
Im sure that so many Swedes but many foreign fans from abroad Sweden would buy him! <3 😀

I WOULD 4 sure! <3 🙂 I would love to have this sweet little fella as teddy bear in my home collection with my others stuffed teddy bears! <3 🙂
