So the voters have made their final decision and Sweden’s Loreen has clinched the top spot at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest with her dance hit “Euphoria.” It is a great sounding song (see below) and she performed it well but not before she had to brush aside some sweet old Russian grandmothers.
Juries and television viewers from across Europe awarded Loreen a total of 372 points, with a win that ended in the early hours Sunday in Baku, Azerbaijan. With the win Sweden will receive hosting duties next year. The preliminary dates set for the two semi-finals are 14 May and 16 May 2013, with the final planned for the evening of 18 May 2013.
Our favourites, the Russian Babushki (Grannies) came in second!
NTD television did a great interview with the Russian “Grannies” here:
