Between 2007 to 2013, every Nordic country won Eurovision except for Iceland. But don’t feel bad for Reykjavik: They came second in 2009. This region is packed with some of the world’s best producers, fiercest songwriters and most camera-ready singers. As Lordi, Alexander Rybak, Loreen and Emmelie de Forest have shown, there’s a lot of good music up north.
This year the bookies have already dubbed Sweden’s Måns Zelmerlöw the heavy favourite to win. Finland’s PKN currently sit in fifth, Norway’s Morland & Debrah Scarlet in sixth, and Iceland’s Maria Olafs in tenth. Denmark’s Anti Social Media are the only Nordic act struggling to gain traction with the oddsmakers. They are way down the list as 31st favourite to win.
