Malmö showed his best side on the grand final day. There was a sunny day with more than 20 °C, so that the fans, who already waited since 5 pm in front of the arena to get good standing places for the grand final, sweet already before the show. After the show the only surprise was how the swedish hosts already during the running voting announced the winner, which for the whole audience wasn‘t any surprise at all. Denmark won the Eurovision in Sweden, the Eurovision History of 2000 has been repeated.
About two weeks ago all the delegations travelled to Malmö, all of them with faith and each of them arrived in Malmö as a „winner“, as every one of them was the winner of a national final or of an internal selection. Unfortunately not everyone will return home today still feeling like a winner, although the fact of being the national winner didn‘t change.
But anyhow beside the official winner‘s press conference there were many other smaller groups around some artists, that after the eurovision night felt like losers and others perhaps a bit more like winners.
Cascada (Germany): after a fantastic show as the 11th song and being the first one getting the arena to dance and to be euphoric, Germany got the 21st of 26 places. Cascada said in the interview that first of all she is disappointed with the result. But that this week was the best of her life and that nothing and nobody can‘t take her this wonderful experience away, even not a bad ranking position.
ESDM (Spain): the spanish and very famous group was surrounded by the spanish press & fans and had to respond very difficult questions, like if their career now will be over. The group made the 25th place and was also sad about that. At the end this group, which was very surprised about the support of the spanish fans and felt like being performing at home in Madrid, for sure had a unforgettable experience and got to know how hard Eurovision is.
Bonnie Tyler (UK): the „Lady“ of this Eurovision was still in a good mood after the show. „I arrived thinking I would do the last place“. At the end UK was 19th and Bonnie also with this reaction still surprising the fans.
Roberto (Belgium): was one of them, who at the end felt like a winner. The very young artist was all time ranked very low. At the end he got some 12 points and made it to the 12nd place. After the show he couldn‘t stop smiling and was happy about this result and hopes that Eurovision will help him in his young musical career. Eurovisionontop will follow him and publish any news about that.
Eurovisionontop will follow all the artists also after this evening and we know, that the eurovision rule is, that not only the winner sells his music after Eurovision.
Perhaps the opening ceremony showed how every one of the participators should feel the day after the 58th Eurovision. It remembered the olympic games and the olympic spirit of „the most important thing is to take part“ should be in every once mind.
With this last statement we wanna thank all the artist for their engagement on stage, their patience with the press, their dedication and passion for their performances. Without each one of you Eurovision wouldn‘t be the same.
