Sweden: Måns Zelmerlöw forced to change his act

Måns Zelmerlöw needs to look for a new projection for the LED-walls in his act for ‘Heroes’ at the Eurovision Song Contest in Vienna. Swedish broadcaster SVT has received a claim for a possible copyright infringement.

The official preview video for Zelmerlöw’s song has been removed from the YouTube channel and has been replaced by a ‘lyrics video’. The act on stage in Vienna will also be different from the winning one in Melodifestivalen.

Måns Zelmerlöw has reacted calm on this news, saying: “The figure will get some new clothes. It will be spring when he needs to perform in Vienna, so he couldn’t use the same clothes as in February anyway.”
