Sweden Wins Eurovision

Swedish singer Loreen won her second Eurovision title for the song "Tattoo" during Saturday night's finale in Liverpool, United Kingdom, in the 67th edition of one of the most highly watched live music performances in the world (see recap). With the win, 39-year-old Loreen became the second artist and first woman ever to win the contest twice.

An original slate of 37 performances was whittled down to 26 ahead of the final competition, the first to allow anyone in the world to vote for their favorite performers. The show, which in recent years has garnered over 100 million viewers worldwide, is known for its glamorous costumes and staging—see a visual breakdown here.

While the event was held in the UK due to the war in Ukraine, much of the night—whose theme was "United by Music"—featured tributes to Ukraine. The technically nonpolitical nature of the event stirred controversy Friday when organizers did not permit Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy to speak at the event.
