Sweden will be performing 13th in the upcoming Second Semi Final this Thursday. The country is represented by Måns Zelmerlöw with the song Heroes. Are there any changes since the country’s first rehearsal? What is the impression left by the song amongst the other entries in the running order? We try to answer your questions reporting live from inside the hall of Wiener Stadthalle.
Måns Zelmerlöw is back. To say that the Swedish performance is great is the simplest way of putting it. The sound balance is right (I was a bit worried earlier in the week in regards to the way the backing vocals were mixed with those of the main singer). The whole routine with the graphics looks terrific as well. Sweden took was granted extra time for their rehearsal; technical issues were cited but these had to do with putting up the black panel where the animated graphics are projected in the exactly the right position for the projection and quickly enough so that it can fit in the time between Iceland leaving the stage and Sweden starting theirs. Unless the world turns upside down, Sweden will be in the final.
