Sweden wins again
Sweden has won the Eurovision song contest six times, ABBA in 1974, Herreys in 1984, Carola in 1991, Charlotte Nilsson in 1999, Loreen in 2012 and Måns Zelmerlöw last year.
Melodifestivalen is held annually in Sweden to determine Sweden’s representative for the Eurovision Song Contest through six televised programes of four semi-finals, a Second Chance round and a grand finale. Since 2000 it has been the most popular programme on Swedish television.
Sweden’s capital city spreads out over 14 islands in Lake Mälaren and looks out proudly to the Baltic Sea to the east. Her grand public buildings, palaces, rich cultural history and museums tell her 700 year-old history beautifully. Find out more about Stockholm
