2000 and Whatever – Sweden

We may not get to see our 2020 favourites take to the stage, but that doesn’t mean we can’t reminisce on our Eurovision favourites. This series is aimed to discover the team’s favourite entries from the 21st century, from 2001 to 2019.

In collaboration with Eurovision Union, we will be reviewing some of their 21st Century favourites, while over on their site, you will find their reviews of our favourites!

Below our reviews, you will find a poll where you can vote for your favourite Eurovision entry from the 21st Century.


Dennis Reviews Anita’s 21st Century Favourite 

Benjamin Ingrosso – Dance You Off | 7th place, 274 points (Final)

I must say, I have always despised this entry. Benjamin let his backings do a lot of the work, the high pitched notes get on my nerves and for a song with this title, it has always made me wonder why it is not able to actually dance on it. I was annoyed that the jury gave it so many points! But thankfully in the televote that error was corrected. No, sorry Anita, we have talked about this a lot, but I can not support this choice as Swedish best entry. I mean, come on, Sweden also gave us Loreen and Måns in this decade (to start with).

Brandon Reviews Joshua’s 21st Century Favourite

Måns Zelmerlöw – Heroes | 1st place, 365 points (Final)

A worthy winner, even though I actually preferred all of Måns other national final entries at Melodifestivalen. Visuals are iconic and definitely playing to Sweden’s strengths. Måns is incredible, you don’t need me to tell you that. Wonder if he’ll ever give it another try?
