Love, Love, Peace, Peace - Måns Zelmerlöw and Petra Mede create the perfect Eurovision Performance |

  • Published: 15 May 2016
  • Måns Zelmerlöw and Comedian Petra Mede have the recipe for the perfect Eurovision Performance: Love, peace, memorable costumes and some strange old folkloristic instrument.

    Opening-Revue mit Måns Zelmerlöw & Petra Mede --

    [Måns]: Step 1! Get everyone's attention. A powerful, majestic start. Maybe a battle horn of some kind?

    [Petra]: Step 2! Drums! There has to be drums! It doesn't hurt if the drums are played by gorgeous topless men. It's proven very efficient throughout the years. But, please feel free to try other alternatives. It's proven very helpful to go the exact opposite way. Use a grandmother!

    [Måns]: Step 3! Show the viewers your country's ethnic background by using an old traditional folklore instrument that no-one's heard of before
    [Petra]: No, no - in this case, it's proven much more efficient to not use a young model. Go with an old man instead. A beard helps!
    [Måns]: This instrument is called a Swedish kvinnaböske - a small roundish piece from the horn family, inherited from the Vikings. Just make something up. No-one will know!

    Step 4! In Eurovision, nothing says winner like a violin. Trust us - bring a violin

    [Petra]: Step 5! The violin, the drums and the kvinnaböske might make it all feel a little bit old fashioned, but this can easily be fixed by adding a DJ who pretends to scratch. In real life of course, this is thirty years old but in Eurovision, it will give your number a contemporary feel

    [Måns]: Step 6 - costumes! You need to look memorable, something that the viewers will notice.
    [Petra]: Oh! Perfect!

    Step 7! The song. Everything else might be important, but the song is essential. Let it be about something everyone can connect to. Love works. Peace is also a popular way to go
    [Måns]: Yes, peace is good. ABBA actually won the competition with a song about war with Waterloo, but this is not something we recommend
    [Petra]: Now when you have everything you need and the pieces are gathered - go for it and don't look back!

    [Verse 1]
    [Måns]: Let the song begin with passion
    Let the wind begin to blow
    [Petra]: You can break the rules of fashion
    And your chance to win shall grow
    Look into the TV camera
    So the audience can see
    [Måns]: That you're lovable - not desperate
    Smile and they will vote for me

    [Both]: Fill the stage with light
    As dancers will join us
    The expectations grow
    It's time for the chorus

    Love love peace peace
    [Måns]: Old women baking bread
    Peace peace love love
    [Petra]: And a man in a hamster wheel
    Love peace peace love
    Make it unforgettable
    You will be the best
    And win the Eurovision Song Contest

    [Verse 2]
    [Måns]: Now we'll go down a notch
    Our hands will touch
    Pretending we're in love
    [Petra]: It's you and me and when we change the key
    [Both]: We'll give the world a show
    It begins to snow

    Love love peace peace
    [Petra]: And a burning fake piano
    Peace peace love love
    [Måns]: And a Russian man on skates
    Love peace peace love
    It'll be incredible
    You will be the best

    Love love peace peace
    [Måns]: Party for everybody!
    Peace peace love love
    [Petra]: More tricks in a hamster wheel
    Love peace peace love
    And we can guarantee
    That you will be the best
    And win the Eurovision Song Contest
    And win the Eurovision Song Contest
