A Deserving #Eurovision2015 winner: “Heroes” by @MansZelmerlow

MANS ZELMERLOW, “Heroes”

The votes came in loud and clear last night as “Heroes” by Sweden’s 28 year old Måns Zelmerlöw overwhelmingly won the Eurovision 2015 prize.  Also Sweden’s Melodifestivalen winner, “Heroes” features a thoughtful, compelling vocal from the singer that in performance is supported by a unique animated sequence that lends beautifully to the lyrics.  I’m not sure if North American audiences will find the song too off-the-beaten-path, but I’m sure it will also be all over European charts after peaking at #2 in Sweden.  Watch both the original video and the Eurovision final performance above.  “Heroes” will be included on Måns’ upcoming album Perfectly Damaged (artwork below), due June 5.  Also, read what I had to say about Måns back at the end of 2009 when I identified him as a performer to watch 🙂 https://billcsistunedon.wordpress.com/2010/01/02/10in2010/
