Sweden in the Eurovision Song Contest
Beginning its Eurovision history in 1958, Sweden has always maintained an excellent record of results. Yet it wasn’t until 1966 that Sweden reached the top three for the first time. The Swedish entry, ‘Nygammatic Vals‘ finished in second place in the Luxembourg City contest, still the only time Sweden finished second. Later, it was in 1974 that Sweden truly began its legacy in the contest. After earning their first victory with, ‘Waterloo‘. Of course, launching ABBA into a global hit.
Consequently, Sweden won five more – Herreys (1984), Carola (1991), Charlotte Nilsson (1999), Loreen (2012) and Måns Zelmerlöw (2015). As well as finishing in third place six times, the country also secured a second place finish in 1966, but never finished second again. Consequently, Sweden is the second most successful Eurovision nation behind leaders Ireland with seven wins.
In 2021 Tusse was selected to represent Sweden in Rotterdam with his song ‘Voices’. Not to mention, he came out on top against stiff competition from 2011 podium finisher Eric Saade and 2020 entrants The Mamas. In the Rotterdam contest, Tusse qualified from the first semi-final in 7th place and in the grand final, Sweden finished in 14th place with 109 points.
