During the show we saw a special interval act to celebrate Christer Björkman’s last year at Eurovision, Måns Zelmerlöw performing his new single “Come Over Love” and Shima Niavarani performing a special version of last year’s winner “Move”.
Next to the Swedish public, eight international juries gave their points as well. These eight juries were from Albania, Cyprus, France, Iceland, Israel, The Netherlands, Switzerland, and United Kingdom. Tusse was their favourite with 79 points, followed by Eric Saade and Dotter. Among the spokespersons we saw many familiar faces, including Switzerland’s 2018 representative ZiBBZ.
Tusse got 96 points from the televoters, meaning he got 12 points from all eight voting groups. The Mamas finished second in the televote ahead of Clara Klingenström and Eric Saade.
