After both the jury and public votes, it was clear that the song Heroes would be performed at Eurovision 2015 as Sweden’s representative song.
The show was hosted by former Melodifestivalen and Eurovision participant, Sanna Nielsen, and comedian and presenter Robin Paulsson. One of the special guests was last year’s winner, Conchita Wurst.
