Måns Zelmerlöw has always had a fondness for Spain. He recorded one of his albums there, he has an apartment there, and last night on the Madrid date of his Heroes tour, he treated his Spanish fans to a cover of Edurne’s “Amanecer”.
Måns was only two words into the song before the enthusiastic crowd realised what he was singing and cheered, singing along perfectly. But most importantly, Måns nailed the big “EEEieEEO” moment on the chorus.
Måns has previously spoken highly of “Amanecer”, saying it was one of his genuine favourites from Vienna. While we still think Edurne gave the definitive performance of the song, we can’t help wonder how “Amanecer” would have fared if Måns had performed it in Vienna. And while he’s in town, maybe Måns and Edurne could turn it into a duet.
Måns earlier announced his arrival in Spain with this Instagram pic. Well, it’s what you do in a hotel room, isn’t it – you admire the view from your window. In your underwear. With the sun highlighting your sixpack abs. EEEieEEO indeed.
Måns plays his second Spanish gig tonight, 4 November, in Barcelona at Razzmatazz, starting at 20:00.
