Enjoy the next Swedish Eurovision entry below:
Stockholm presented a glamorous and spectacular final, with surprising live acts, such as the Norwegian 2019 entrants KEiiNO, and two former Eurovision winners joining forces on stage! The 1998 Eurovision winner Dana International, as well as her successor Charlotte Perrelli have released a brand new single, entitled Diva to Diva. This happened 20 whole years after their first co-existence on stage, when Dana gave the prize to Charlotte, in 1999 in Jerusalem.
