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.

You are right, this flashy fake thing called “Hero” does nothing for me, whats so special about singing HERO EH OOO WOOO EH OH OH,I wont bother to add question mark to that, because I know some people can easily be convinced and even blown away with simple eurotrash like this, soo cheap, is this wins I would laugh my head off, we don’t want to see this guy announced as winner, please, its a song contest not artist contest

Juries are a joke they were used to fix winners before they were removed and now again they are doing the same. All is too clean and predictable the last years. When two thirds of countries read their votes the winner is already known. If that is not plain fixing not sure what is. No song is that good that almost everybody thinks the same about it.

I think Sweden’s appeal comes about from Mans’ good looks & the rear projection. I like Heroes but I am starting to think I have over-rated the song myself. It is all about the “oh ee oohs”. Really there is not much else to it.

@Eris
First of all, I didn’t say that Man’s song is the best. I used the Irish example to state that Sweden has the same right to win often as every other country, regardless of when it won recently. Incidentally, I disagree that Irish song in 1994 was the best (Polish one was better).
Secondly, Mans is in a spotlight due to his huge popularity (he is very famous for his other entires at Melodifestivalen) among Eurovision’s fans. The same situation was last year with Conchita.

It is an absurd, too much promotion to the songs of Sweden at ESC, year after year, but this year beats all records and in the end will not even win.

Chris, the irish songs that won back then where actually the best songs at the contest. Mans’s song is average and the competition this year is hard. i do not hate him because he is favorite to win but because they force too much spotlight on him. I find it unfair for him to perform all these songs while others just had a 3 min moment …. also his atritude seems like dima bilan’s in 2008 …dima back then was so annoying.

The Makemakes stated on ORF that Mans Zelmerlöw is not their favourite, because he relies more on his props than his song. Couldn’t have said it better and Mr. Zelmerlöw earns some candid criticism from fellow competitors as he himself dared to ask on Finnish TV if someone could seriously like the Finnish song. Mr. Sellmylife will also have trouble standing out from the performing crowd as his neat projections will look pretty poor while ORF provides every artist with kinetic lights, which are mind-blowing and fantastic. Projections are just meh.

This increasing hate towards Mans is starting to annoy me. It refers mainly to the videos of Man’s performances and interviews on youtube. For a few weeks I have been observing a groundless trend of disliking every video of wiwibloggs conntected with him. I can understand that everybody has their own taste. However we all know that it is not the taste that determines the mentioned trend. “Heroes” is not my favourite, but surely it is not a bad song. It is at least well-sung. Why on earth so many viewers dislike it as if it is a bad song… Read more »

@Robyn Gallagher Gallagher What is enough is enough. Now you are shamelessly lying and you know that. Anybody can easily check out videos from London party downloaded on YouTube by other users than wiwibloggs and find out the truth. And for the microphone video – I saw it and it definitely proves that without the playback choruses (which were first in a long line of violated rules), his voice sounds breathy, average and notably weak in higher notes. End of the case. I believe more and more that this Sweden-propaganda on your blog has something to do with Mr. Björkman´s… Read more »

@manne sorry but how is the Russia song a copy of Undo? Apart from both being ballads they have nothing else in common. But Heroes does sound a lot like Lovers on the sun. Even when i showed Heroes to my friends they said the same thing, they were like woah isn’t this David guetta’s song?

manne

Im sorry, dont say anything bad about Russia. She sings for Russia, and represent Russia. Not her self. Hero is not a copy of David Guetta. Russias song its a copy of sweden last year, but not good copy. I have herd that song a lotts of year. So Russians song its not vew

Wut… who is gonna win: Sweden or Australia?
Both not hopefully…
Australia doesn’t have a good song,
Sweden has, but if they win… countries will withdraw :/
Azerbaijan’s song is also good, but not a winner
Spain, Albania or Estland would be a nice choice
If Italy wins it will be one big joke thats not funny

Prefer Finland over Sweden, Australia and Italy….

“Heroes” is a copy of “Lovers On The Sun”, which is a copy of other songs from David Guetta and Avicii.

Look at The Common Linnets. They had not the same power as “Heroes” but their entry was more sharp, and that’s why they were 2nd last year.

People, please use your brains! The structure of “Heroes” is antiquated. It would be good for 2000, maybe 2005, but not for 2015! Russia has much more modern entry, similar to Sanna Nielsen or Zlata Ognevich.

Between Australia & Sweden there is even a bigger difference than only the Pacific ocean. Guy Sebastian is full blood musicean with 42 platinum, three gold certifications and combined album and single sales over 3 million in Australia &
1 million in USA.

Guy has one of Australia’s best artist success stories of all time……………
42 Platinum ALBUMS & 3 GOLD AWARDS and now Winner of the ESC 2015

That’s the big difference between Guy Sebastian & Måns Zelmerlöw of Sweden.

Please get it in consideration that.. Australias – Guy Sebastian before announcement of participation at the ESC 2015 he was mostly unknown in Europe. Now, he has introduced & performed himself & his music during the last 2 weeks in Europe ALMOST all in “Accapella” Style, no band, no drums, no chorus back singers !!!!!!!! That was an amazing music job & live perfomance, believe it or not. Now he will come to Austria & Vienna & he will have the best support of us. I’ll bet all my money on Guy’s victory “TONIGHT AGAIN” & again & again……..Winner 2015… Read more »

He was amazing last night! And judging by the crowd reaction, he is getting the UK’s 12 points in May! Y’all didn’t video the bit after his performance when he got the crowd to accapella the oh-ohh-ohhhes and got us all to do the dance move!! Gutted, cos that was awesome. Nobody quite got a reaction like Mans last night, for sure! It was incredible! I’ve been so on the fence about who my fave is between him and Estonia, but Mans may have swung it last night, think he’s number 1 now, however if Elina and Stig had actually… Read more »

Wow, Wow. Having seen the party at the Cafe de Paris in London it seems that poor Måns Zelmerlöw of SWEDEN is really struggling with his live-perfomance yesterday, especially in the refrains. Not one of his better performances, that´s for sure. High notes were almost impossible to deliver for Mr. Black Leather Fashion – Måns Zelmerlöw at London. SWEDEN only sounds pretty good only with prerecorded backing chorus and only sounds powerful while listening on mp3, video, radio or other high technical recorded music resources, for music experts that’s not enough material for a win. It’s really not good enough… Read more »

His weakest performance of Heroes so far. Especially the high notes were almost unbearable and mostly off-key. The lower parts of it were as good as always.
