Sweden made a memorable debut at Eurovision In Concert when Måns Zelmerlöw performed his song “Heroes” in Amsterdam. Even without the projection mapping of his Melodifestivalen performance, he still put on a captivating show, with the sell-out Melkweg audience singing along right from the start.

After the performance, the show’s presenters Edsilia Rombley and Cornald Maas had a brief chat to Måns about the story behind “Heroes”, and he talked about how inspired he is by the HIV-positive children he’s met through his charity.

This is my opinion: If you think Måns sing “Fleshy fake”. You must listen to Georgiens singer. Thats flrshy and fake song

Omg, some of the haters here are unbelievable. The crowd went crazy for the song, that should be enough indication of how it’s going to do in Vienna.
Also, until David Guetta presents a copyright infringement lawsuit, there is no plagiarism.

Hey! Check out the piano version of the portuguese entry “Há um mar que nos separa” sung by Leonor Andrade e Miguel Gameiro (author of the song) last night in Got Talent Portugal: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pbz1Jz-m-jo 🙂

I like his voice. The song is a bit too repetitive and somehow lacks a good punch, despite the heroes refrain. I think it needs more boldness to the sound in those parts – either something extra instrumentally or extra volume with strong back-up singers.

But they did not say it as if they feel sad or have given up. It was a matter of observation from the crowd’s reactions according to them and that is simply it. I give more plus points to the duo for being the most friendly in this year’s contest 🙂

Even the Maraaya duo said that Mans is the big favorite. I still wish them luck because they all deserve it.

Also, I thought the arrangement of Heroes is similar to the song “Love Me Again” by John Newman…

Mark Dowd I agree with you. Sweden entry is nothing more than fleshy fake song.. Måns Zelmerlöw can sing as much as he wants this hero wanna be uptempo song that we heard similar ones in the past, one example is again from Sweden in 2008 charlotte Perelli HERO lol while she was favourite and even OGAE’s number one she got position 18th on scoreboard then people made excuses that Charlotte looked like an alien burchered song etc. Dana International said that but she herself failed miserably with DING DONG what do you expect from people who are chatting out… Read more »

Some songs get better the more you hear them (Norway, Azerbaijan) and others go the opposite way…like Sweden. It’s like when you first hear it it’s OK, but you slowly realise, when you open the door, there is nothing inside the cupboard.

It is the same every year…the big favourite gets negative comments and are more or less trashed by the esc fans.

even loreen got plenty of negative comments that she would not even qualify and that she was an unoriginal singer etc.

I think the American accent is because his English language tutor was American. But it really sounds rather silly. 😛 I wish you good luck Mans, but I cannot see this formulaic song winning.

Great performance! I feel very happy that he represents Sweden in the Eurovision, and he has a great song too. I’m surprised by the very negative comments here, but I guess that’s part of being a big favorite to win. Loreen also received negative comments prior to her victory I remember, everything about her being a terrible singer to her being false and fake. I guess people always cheer the underdog?

Honestly guys.. Can someone here say that they will listen to the finnish song on a daily basis and really enjoy it?.. Be honest now.. However I do disagree and agree with Måns.. I personally don’t like the finnish song but I don’t see why he has to say it the way he did, “that it’s bad”.. NOT OK! The same goes for the homophobic things he said.. If that’s his opinion, fine im not gonna sit here and say that it’s wrong.. However I don’t think it was OK for him to say it the way he did.. Because… Read more »

No, he said this:

Men låten, ingen kan väl tycka att det är en bra låt, eller?

In english: But the song, no one can think this good song, OR?

Maybe this a better translation:but the song, can anyone really think this a good song, or???

He said this as a question.

Still he didn’t say this in Finland. In Finland he only said he dislike the Finnish song. Why do the finns ask about their song if they can’t take any negative opinion about it??? Finland must know their song have many citics of their song.

And there are loads of similiar songs to Heroes, not only Lovers On The Sun. I’m not a big fan of this song, but I can surely say that IT IS NOT A FREAKIN COPY, it’s just the same genre!

I don’t know why people are saying that Estonia, Czech Republic, Lithuania and all other duets are copy of Netherlands 2014 (saw some comments in this article. There always have been duets in Eurovision. It’s like saying that all female vocalists are copies of female vocalists from previous contests and all goups are copies from One Direction. This is just stupid as well as “haters gonna hate”. If someone doesn’t like a song which most people like, that doesn’t make him hater. In this case, we all are haters of something, but I don’t feel like hater, there are songs… Read more »

He didn’t say anything wrong in Finland. He only said he don’t like the Finnish song. He said the band is cool and it’s nice that different persons take part.

If that is worth booing in Vienna then you haters are the most pathetic ones in the world. Finland is childish. Seriously some people needs to grow up.

The song is just unoriginal and forgettable on its own…will definitely do well in Vienna with that staging but not a winner in my opinion. The fact that Mans doesn’t connect with me as a performer and how he insulted the Finnish act while in Finland, used a swear word, not to mention the comments made a year ago that, like it or not, sound pretty homophobic and that’s how they’re being interpreted. It doesn’t matter if Måns meant something other than that, and if he was just expressing his opinion with the Finnish thing, a performer is a role… Read more »

@ per: You forgot to mention Czech Republic, which is a copy of both Austria 2014 (James Bond theme) and Netherlands 2014 (male female duet).

This year won’t see a winner coming from a male female duet nor from female power ballad. But it won’t be Mans Sellout-lowlife either. It will be the boys from Italy, Finland or Belgium.

I thought the worst thing about Heroes was that is a complete rip-off of both Lovers On The Sun & Anarchy Of Light.

But now I realise the worst song about Heroes is Mans. He is a complete asshole by stating in Finland on Finnish TV that the Finnish entry is bad. That’s not his first public gaffe, which goes to show how conceit and stupid he is.

In Vienna I will boo my lungs out when he appears on stage.

Thats a copying of Sweden and Austria 2014. Estonia, Litauen, Norway,San Marino and Bellarus. Is a copying of Nederland 2014. No Its the same genre.

Oh how you people love trashing the favorite… Sweden is a guaranteed top 3 for me, along with Italy and Australia. Most people see the ESC songs for the first time, and Mans’ presentation has that WOW factor that makes it favorable and memorable. I think the song is great, the singer is great, and the ESC (Melodi) presentation – is greater.
