May 14 / First Rehearsal Sweden: heroic performance
Fotis Konstantopoulos (Greece)
The first rehearsal of one of the top favourites (according to bookies) in Eurovision 2015:
David Guetta Måns Zelmerlöw got the Wiener Stadthalle stage and rocked! The same stage presentation concept with Melodifestivalen but changed in terms of graphics, moves and the lights from blue turn into red. Spectacular!

Måns Zelmerlöw masterminded one of the most memorable moments in the history of the Swedish selection show, Melodifestivalen, with his performance of the uplifting Heroes. Obviously both the song and the vocals had to be strong – previous winners have included artists from ABBA to Loreen – but the visual spectacular show took everyone by surprise and rendered him the victory in the contest on his third attempt.
