Måns Zelmerlöw at Eurovision 2015: I think the audience will like a cartoon character

Måns Zelmerlöw is the main contender for victory at the Eurovision Song Contest 2015. He will sing the song Heroes. Bookies have set a coefficient of 2.5 for Heroes' victory at the contest.

29-year-old Zelmerlöw admits that he is very pleased with how the song is perceived by viewers and listeners worldwide. The Swedish team is confident that the cartoon man in the singer's number will win hearts of Eurovision fans.

During the song, a cartoon character will be projected near Måns.

However, the difficulty is that the audience should get the impression that he is talking to Måns. The character should nod to music, wink and sit near the singer. Moreover, he will dance to music!

Zelmerlöw-singer and Zelmerlöw-magician - this is what the Swedish team want the audience to think. The performance is simple in terms of understanding but not in terms of directing.

Måns Zelmerlöw:
The song is about how we can all be heroes and do something to improve our world. We should set an example for our children. When I was 11-12 years old, I had great difficulty in search of friends, and in this song I show how a lonely child tries to adapt, and in the end, he manages to return to his friends as it happened to me. 

Måns is a big Eurovision fan. And now he wants to bring Eurovision back in Sweden. However, he understands that it won't be easy to realize this dream.

Måns Zelmerlöw:
There is stiff competition. Personally, I think that it will be very difficult to beat Italy. And Australia are strong, too: Guy Sebastian is a wonderful performer, and I think it's great that Australia has such a big star. Azerbaijan has a cool song.

Sweden won Eurovision five times: in 1974, 1984, 1991, 1999 and 2012. Incidentally, at the song contest in 2012, Swedish Loreen won 12 points from 18 countries! This is a record in the history of the song contest.

Måns Zelmerlöw will first have to qualify for the final, which he, no doubt, will do with ease.

Sweden will perform in the second semifinal on May 21.
