Singer | Songwriter | TV presenter
Born in Lund, Sweden, Måns Zelmerlöw a multi-hyphenate pop singer, songwriter and television presenter. A pop phenomenon, known as one of the hardest working names in the music business, Måns first broke onto the music scene on Sweden’s ‘Idol’ programme in 2005, ultimately finishing fifth. The following year, he won the first series of ‘Let’s Dance’ with dance partner Maria Karlsson, and released the first single, ‘Cara Mia’, from his debut album, ‘Stand by For…’ – garnering critical acclaim, the song reached number one in Sweden, coming third in the annual Melodifestivalen and, after 36 weeks in the charts, has since gone double platinum.
Alongside his music, Måns has also carved out a successful career as a television presenter – hosting Melodifestivalen alongside Dolph Lundgren and Christine Meltzer in 2010, and popular music show ‘Allsång på Skansen’ from 2011 to 2013.
In 2015, Måns represented Sweden in the Eurovison Song Contest, winning by a huge majority with his song, ‘Heroes’. Watched by millions across the world, he co-hosted the show in Stockholm the following year, and has made regular hosting appearances since then.
Over the last few years, Måns has released his eighth studio album, ‘Time’, as well as teaming up with fellow Eurovision alumni, Polina Gagarina, to record the official song for the World Figure Skating Championships 2021.
