It was the first time a current Swedish artist had performed at the London Eurovision Party, and Måns Zelmerlöw certainly didn’t disappoint fans at Café de Paris last night. As well as owning it in his leather trousers, Måns also performed his two previous Melodifestivalen songs, “Cara Mia” and “Hope and Glory”, as well as this year’s Eurovision song, “Heroes”.
Måns greeted the crowd with “Hello, London!”, adding “I’ve always been wanting to say that.” He began with his Melodifestivalen 2007 song “Cara Mia”, followed by his #Melfest 2009 song “Hope and Glory”, complete with the original dance moves. The audience sang along, which left Måns happily surprised, saying, “You actually know these songs! I had no idea that anyone outside of Sweden knew them.” Måns, you have international fans!
Before he finally brought the house down with his performance of “Heroes”, Måns described winning Melodifestivalen as “a dream come true” and promised more fun at the Euroclub in Vienna. Wiwibloggs will see you there, Måns!
Wiwibloggs also caught up with Måns before the show, where he talked about his upcoming album and his plans to ask former Melfest winners for Eurovision advice.
