Since expressing his interest in hosting Eurovision in Stockholm next May, Måns Zelmerlöw has been a hot favorite to present the show both with the bookies, who immediately named him the favourite, and with our readers, who placed him second behind Petra Mede in our poll. Rumours have also suggested that Sanna Nielsen and Gina Dirawi are in the mix.
But is Måns Zelmerlöw really going to host Eurovision next May in Stockholm? According to the Swedish tabloid Aftonbladet SVT is nearly finished brokering a deal with Måns. They only have to work out some minor formalities at this point. He will reportedly not have a minor role such as hosting the green room or acting as a special guest. It’s still unknown if he will be the only presenter or if he will be accompanied by a co-host.
We can assure you that Måns is a very experienced host: he already hosted Melodifestivalen back in 2010 and Lila Melodifestivalen in 2007, and was a regular host on Allsång på Skansen from 2011 to 2013. We’re sure a lot of you are breathing a sigh of relief since a lot of us don’t want another inexperienced former Eurovision winner as a host…
So are you happy with the news? Should Måns do all the hosting alone or should he be accompanied by someone else? Let us know in the comments section below!!
