Yeah! Heroes Won!!
The reigning hero, Måns Zelmerlöv, came back to Sweden after a victorious night at the Eurovision contest on Saturday!!
|Malmö waits for Måns Zelmerlöv|
My cousin (with thousands more) waited and took this shot on Stortorget in Malmö, Sweden. I've been a fan since the get-go, see my post here where I rated the Swedish contestants and chose him as my #1. So exciting for Sweden, they've really got this Eurovision thing nailed! Sweden has won 5 times - 1974, 1984, 1991, 1999, 2012 and this year 2015! facts here
Check out this live video from him winning the 60th annual Eurovision contest. It starts with a recap of his winning on Saturday in Austria and then shows the Lundapåg (Lund boy) coming home to celebrate! Plus a nice choral verson of "Hero" http://www.svtplay.se/video/2960966/hyllning-till-mans
The show is in Swedish but I think the crowd and screaming girls translates pretty easily. (One of the questions is how he doesn't seem to sweat. Ha, ha) The man is a hero for life in Sweden now. This is something I've written about before, it's taken pretty seriously as you can see from the crowds. Heja Sweden! :-) And one more time, here's a link to the song, "Heroes":
