After the jury scores were announced, Sweden’s entry Tattoo by Loreen was leading the pack with 340 points, with Israel and Italy behind with 177 and 176 points respectively. But as we all know, that was only ever half of the story!

After a tension-packed announcement of the public vote, it was revealed that Tattoo received enough points to earn the win! Sweden scored a total of 583 points, with Finland finishing in second-place with 526 points.

This is the country's 7th win, meaning that Sweden now ties with Ireland for the most Eurovision Song Contest wins of all time.

Loreen has actually scored two of those 7 wins for Sweden. In 2012, she won the Contest in Baku with the song Euphoria. Loreen becomes only the second artist in history to have won the Eurovision Song Contest twice, after Johnny Logan did the double for Ireland in the '80s.

Since her Eurovision win and the release of her breakthrough album 'Heal', both in 2012, Loreen has enchanted audiences with her voice, unique artistic expression, and captivating lyrics.

In the decade since the Baku Contest, Loreen has continued to develop artistically, exploring new ways to express her creativity; from releasing Swedish-language music for the first time, to making her acting debut in the film adaptation of Vinterviken.

Last year, the singer came full circle back to electrifying pop, releasing the track Neon Lights - a song about a modern-day Joan of Arc. Loreen wants to continue using music to challenge her audience with messages of inclusion and representation.
