Loreen is exhausted after a very long evening and a somewhat hoped-for win considering she was the bookmakers’ favourite: “It’s wonderful and there’s no way I’ll settle for two Eurovision titles as long as they let me participate … of course, competition is everything in these cases. But the most important thing is creativity. That must never be missing.” And what is the difference between the success in 2012 and this one? “Euphoria was a more mysterious performance, while Tattoo is a much more open, clearer work. If Euphoria was a moonlight song, this time we are in the full light.”


The 39-year-old Swedish singer, born near Stockholm to Moroccan Berber parents, human and civil rights activist, proudly bisexual and already sung and embodied a modern Joan of Arc, goes deeper: “For me, creativity is also spirituality.” something magical. Just think of John Lennon to see what I mean…”. The very long Edward Scissorhands style nails have the same motivation: “It’s my hands that move, they give me energy and there’s also something spiritual about it.”

“And then for me the public is everything,” Loreen continues, “when I’m alone I can even cry.” But when the fans are there and you’re there, I concentrate and only feel positive emotions on stage. But what is the secret of winning the Eurovision Song Contest twice? “Be authentic. Listen to yourself and take a step back. But the most important thing is to be yourself. And so Loreen decides to sing Tattoo with all of us. The most beautiful end of this unrepeatable Eurovision.
