Petra is of course no stranger to the world of Eurovision having hosted Sweden's national selection for the Eurovision Song Contest, Melodifestivalen, in 2009 and presented the Eurovision Song Contest solo in Malmö in 2013. She also presented Eurovision's Greatest Hits, a concert celebrating 60 years of the Eurovision Song Contest, alongside UK commentator Graham Norton.
Måns Zelmerlöw first participated in Melodifestivalen in 2007 and again in 2009. Alongside singing, Måns is also an accomplished TV presenter in Sweden. He struck lucky when he participated in Melodifestivalen for a third time in 2015 with Heroes, which took the Eurovision Song Contest by storm and brought the competition back to Sweden for the second time in three years. Check out the highlights from Måns and Petra below:
Måns and Petra managed to successfully balance humour and seriousness during the live shows in Stockholm. The 2016 Eurovision Song Contest took place amidst a refugee crisis, one of the biggest humanitarian challenges the continent has seen since the end of World War II. Petra acknowledged the situation when she introduced the interval for Semi-Final 1, The Grey People. On-air Måns made reference to Bulgaria's entry, If Love Was A Crime, highlighting that in many parts of the world love still is a crime. Måns and Petra will be remembered best for their humour, on-stage banter and of course their popular performance of Love, Love, Peace, Peace during the Grand Final!
