You might think that Eurovision 2015 favourite Måns Zelmerlöw would have a stylist spending hours picking out what he would wear on the red carpet at Eurovision. As it turns out that’s not the case. In our interview ahead of the Opening Ceremony, he told wiwiblogger William that it only took him ten minutes to decide which suit to wear.

Måns also admitted that he was now feeling “less confident” about his chances of victory, even with the bookmakers supporting him as favourite. Måns explained that all of the other songs had really grown on him the more he has heard them in Vienna.

Sweden’s SVT often sets the standard with staging — but even Måns has been wowed by Austria’s lighting design. “It’s the most beautiful lighting I’ve ever seen,” he says. He even threw some accidental shade towards the Melodifestivalen team by saying that the staging for “Heroes” might actually have been done better by ORF!

You can watch the full red carpet interview below, as well as a further interview after his first rehearsal:

But of course im impressed by Mans’ superb spectacular performance…It is really top and can earn him possibly the victory…Will be enough to boost his not winning material song as i claimed…Like it had happened with Azerbaijan in 2011 & there was a GreAtY performance of a NOT winning song like *Running Scared* was…Although it was wonderful song.. <3

Its not the same…I just separate the studio recorded songs from the actual live performances..

EDIT I had written the words ” ‘f**k yeah” in my comment & now i had removed them.. —————————————————————————— Well his song is not winning material or even that really good to admit…I never REALLY liked to begin with…I just thought that it is a very descent nice enough song that can do really well on the Vision but definitely NOT to win the whole thing..
