Måns Zelmerlöw Hopes UK Will Hold National Selection


sweden 2015 minipopFormer Participants – The winner of the year’s Eurovision Song Contest, Sweden’s Måns Zelmerlöw has said that he thinks the United Kingdom should hold a national selection if it wants to enter a good song with charting potential. Speaking to Digital Spy, Måns said,

“Eurovision has yet to prove that it can create artists that can go on outside the Eurovision bubble. I know Loreen tried and she came quite far, but she still has some steps to take. It’s getting there and I think the interest will keep on growing all over Europe. I hope the UK will do something bigger as well – in the UK for the selection process… I think that it’s the only way to get an impact on the charts. People feel like they can decide.”

Måns was also supportive of the idea of guest non-European countries participating in future.
“We should let anyone who’s willing to do it compete, because this could definitely be an international competition. That would be even more fun. Just seeing that China aired the competition for the first time, that could also be a great market for European artists.”

Måns Zelmerlöw’s new album ‘Perfectly Damaged’  featuring ‘Heroes‘ will be released in the UK, France and Poland on June 8th and in Sweden and Australia on June 5th.

  1. I agree, but the UK national selection would have to be something more like Melfest than the old A Song For Europe / Making Your Mind Up thing we used to have.

    If there’s an audience that feels invested in the process and the eventual selection, then we as a nation might feel more invested in our involvement with ESC. As long as we don’t end up with another Daz Sampson…
