A beloved tradition since their inception in 2002, the Marcel Bezençon Awards, named after the creator of the Eurovision Song Contest, are given annually to three worthy winners. The awards were handed out in the Delegation Lounge just prior to Saturday night’s show by Christer Björkman, former Swedish Head of Delegation, 1992 Eurovision Song Contest participant, and the Executive Producer of the American Song Contest.
Christer Björkman was pleased to announce this year’s Marcel Bezençon Award Winners:
The Artistic Award, which is presented to the best artistic performance as voted for by the commentators from each participating broadcaster, was awarded to Loreen from Sweden for Tattoo. It is the first time The Artistic Award has gone to the same act twice. Loreen won the Award in 2012, for Euphoria, also for Sweden.
The Press Award, which is voted on by the accredited members of the media, was also given to Sweden’s Loreen for Tattoo.
The Composer Award, which is presented to a song’s team of composers, is voted on by all of the participating composers at this year’s Contest. This year, the award was presented to Marco Mengoni, Davide Petrella and Davide Simonetta, for the song Due Vite, representing Italy.
The Eurovision Song Contest congratulates all of this year’s winners!
