Mar 23, 2015
In the almost 60 years that the show has been on, the attention has always gone to the gorgeous, glitzy pop stars, but this year, a middle-aged Swedish sign language interpreter has stolen the limelight and become the real breakout sensation of the show.
Tommy Krangh's signing for Magnus Carlsson has such intensity and flair that it's been seen over 2.6 million times on YouTube. Even Magnus said, "I can't even express my admiration for this guy's imagination when he interprets my song!"
The Eurovision Song Contest is held annually by countries belonging to the European Broadcasting Union (EBU). Once each country has submitted their chosen song and performer, all participating countries vote to determine the winner.
