– It feels so terribly good. As I sat against the wall and would sing again I almost started bellowing said a segerrusig Mans Zelmerlöw Nöjesbladet after the broadcast.
– I am so happy and grateful. I’ve longed for this since ’07. I sat here and tried to take in what had happened. It felt absolutely sick to have a standing Friends stadium with 28,000 people. I shed almost a little tear and must be sung like a rake, but it may be worth it. I will do everything I can to win the Eurovision and fight in Vienna.
“We’ll take home this”
The big favorite also revealed that he struggled not to let the nervousness fuck his appearance.

Jon Henry “a bit shocked”
But Måns was not the only favorite.
Nöjesbladet met a shaken Jon Henrik Fjällgren after transmission.
– It was tense, very nervous. I felt that I would not win, but maybe get a good position, he told Aftonbladet.
– I’m jumpy. I came second, I did not even think I would do it.
How does it feel to not scoop the prize?
– I’m very happy for Måns, he is cruel . I wish him good luck.
What do you think of his chances in Europe?
– It is hard to say, both are real good on its manner. But I believe in him.
But first await tonight’s victory celebration.
– I’ll celebrate so much with all of my relatives, family and friends and just have terribly funny, I’m so loaded. I celebrate the long and prosper, and shall drink as much champagne and dancing on the table. I will do so very stupid things. And celebrate with shots and quark, he said.
