Live performance in the Grand Final of Heroes by Måns Zelmerlöw representing Sweden at the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest. The Eurovision Song Contest is one of the longest running television shows in the world. It was on the 24th of May, 1956, that Europe saw the first ever Eurovision Song Contest. After all those years, the contest is one of the most typical European traditions and without doubt, Europe's favorite TV show! In 2005, the Eurovision Song Contest celebrated its 50th Anniversary by picking the best entry to date and in the 60th anniversary with Eurovision Song Contest's Greatest Hits in London as well with a conference. Well done to Sweden you deserved it.
