Fresh from his acclaimed co-hosting of Eurovision 2016, Måns Zelmerlöw has debuted his new single “Wrong Decision” with an acoustic performance on the Swedish morning show Nyhetsmorgon.

Performing the song with two members of his live band, Måns delivered a heartfelt performance of “Wrong Decision”. The song is about someone struggling with the end of a troubled relationship, wondering if his behaviour prompted the other person to make the “wrong decision”.

The acoustic performance and close vocal harmonies and falsetto made the performance reminiscent of a boyband ballad from the late ’90s, though we suspect the studio version will have a more contemporary sound.

Måns and his band also delivered an acoustic performance of his current single “Fire in the Rain”. Måns — who recently co-hosted Eurovision, celebrated his 30th birthday and completed the 300km Vätternrundan bicycle ride —gave a spirited performance of the song.

Gone were the hoverboards of his Eurovision performance. Instead Måns and his minstrels were seated in the studio, looking Scandinavian cool in black and neutrals.

Måns Zelmerlöw – “Wrong Decision” (lyrics)

It was instant, I knew it
Wasn’t ready to do it
Wasn’t ready to say yes at the time

Hardly knew one another
Favourite kind, favourite colour
It’s not enough, not enough when choosing life

I was relieved, like a weight off my shoulders
I was ok, it would soon be all over
So why am I stuck here filled with doubt?

I know it’s too late, that it’s already broken
And I can’t turn the wheel
But if I could would it be any different?
Did I just make you make the wrong decision?

Never thought it would ever be easy
But not as hard as this
For today, you were mine, you were real
I think I must made you make the wrong decision

I’m not ok
I’m not ok
I’m not ok
I’m not ok

Are you holding together?
I know you’ll always remember
I remember the day I caught your eye

Don’t regret it a second
How you got my attention
But it was not my intention to lose a life

I was relieved, like a weight off my shoulders
I was ok, it would soon be all over
So why am I stuck here filled with doubt?

I know it’s too late, that it’s already broken
And I can’t turn the wheel
But if I could would it be any different?
Did I just make you make the wrong decision?

Never thought it would ever be easy
But not as hard as this
For today, you were mine, you were real
I think I must made you make the wrong decision, yeah

I’m not ok
I’m not ok
I’m not ok
I’m not ok

I always had my doubts about it
Wondering what it would be like
Looking into your eyes

I know it’s too late, that it’s already broken
And I can’t turn the wheel
But if I could would it be any different?
Did I just make you make the wrong decision?

Never thought it would ever be easy
But not as hard as this
For today, you were mine, you were real
I think I must made you make the wrong decision, yeah

I’m not ok
I’m not ok
I’m not ok
I’m not ok

I’m not ok
I’m not ok
I’m not ok
I’m not ok

I’m not ok

I just heard that Brexit won the voiting. But that means Scotland will soon vote for independence, which may means Eurovision participation. You are always welcome to participate, Scotland 🙂

I also heard that Northern Ireland wanted to stay, unlike England and Wales. Do Northern Ireland also want to break free from UK, or do they want to be a part of Ireland, or do they want to stay in the UK?
