Måns Zelmerlöw, the winner of the Eurovision Song Contest 2015, was victorious at Rockbjörnen 2015. Rockbjörnen are the prestigious Swedish music awards, and Måns received the “rock bears” in two categories.
Måns Zelmerlöw did not only receive the award for Male Live Artist Of The Year for his summer tour, but also won Swedish Song Of The Year with his winning Eurovision-entry Heroes. Måns is of course extremely proud and thankful for the two awards, voted on by the public. As he told Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet:
This is so freaking fat! I have always thought that Rockbjörnen perhaps was not my kind of gala, because there are so many other artists who have been vocally strong and who have many fans. To then receive these Rock Bears is a great proof of love from the fans. It is so phenomenally fun!
“Heroes” has been streamed over 50 million times and is a big hit, so I thought I might win that prize. But this year’s Live Male Award was a total shock and I’m very proud and grateful for it.
My biggest dream in life is to make a European tour and in the fall, I get to visit 21 European cities. Come join me everybody!
Måns Zelmerlöw was victorious over various other Swedish artists with ties to Eurovision, including Eric Saade, Danny Saucedo, Molly Sandén and Darin.
