Sweden’s Loreen won European Song Contest

UPDATED POST:
Watch the music video of Loreen and listen to the TOP song playing in Europe right now.

Sweden’s Loreen just won the European Song Contest with the song Euphoria, and this song is climbing up in the music charts on iTunes and Spotify in Europe like crazy. Loreen was humble, and thanked Sweden for believing in her in a live TV interview afterwards. I have a feeling we will hear much more about Loreen in the future, she has so much star quality. Loreen also made headlines for taking time off during the Eurovision Song Contest to discuss about possible human rights violations in Azerbaijan, this year’s host country of the song contest.

Euphoria won the Swedish Melodifestivalen earlier this year and Loreen will be representing represented Sweden in the Eurovision Song Contest with this song held in Baku, Azerbaijan. (Really, there is a country named Azerbaijan.)

More about Melodiefestivalen & Eurovision Song Contest

The Melodifestivalen is this huge song contest, where Swedish songwriters and singers compete who’s going to represent Sweden in the Eurovision Song Contest. It’s a pretty big deal in Sweden, and this is probably the most watched TV shows. It’s like American Idol, but more popular in Sweden. The most well known Melodifestivalen and Eurovision Song Contest winning Swedish song is probably ABBA’s Waterloo from 1974.

Have you heard of the Eurovision Song Contest before..? Eurovision Song Contest is a huge song contest held in Europe every year since 1956, and is one of the longest-running television programs in the world. It is also one of the most watched non-sporting events on TV in the world, with anything between 100 million and 600 million viewers. Each European country in the European Broadcasting Union submits a song to this contest and then it’s held live and broadcasted all around the world. It’s like musical SuperBowl and the winner is voted on the live show by each country giving points to the other countries.

  1. So bummed out I missed Eurovision – it’s not screened here in Korea! Loreen’s song is a tune, and props on her for bringing up the debate about human rights in this year’s host nation, Azerbaijan.

      You can watch many of the songs on YouTube – but of course it’s not the same as watching it live. We just moved to Sweden this spring and were excited to watch it live on TV. I hadn’t lived in Europe for 10 years :)

      You can actually watch it all in it’s entirety on the official Eurovision site.
