In case you missed it, Sweden won this year’s Eurovision Song Contest last night! Thanks to Loreen Talhaoui (pictured), we’ve now had a total of five wins over the years (ABBA being the most famous winner with their song Waterloo back in 1974).
The winning song is called Euphoria, and even though I thought it would fare well, I didn’t expect it to win the whole competition. I thought the voters would go for Russia’s number because of the cute ladies and the catchy tune, but Russia ended up in second place.
Euphoria reminds me a lot of Till the World Ends by Britney Spears, I think you’ll notice it too if you listen to it.
Eurovision Song Contest is pretty big in Sweden, so winning means a lot for many people here. The fact that we won also means that Sweden will be hosting next year’s competition. If you’ve been waiting for an excuse to visit Stockholm, this might be it!
