Tusse will represent Sweden at Eurovision 2021 after winning Melodifestivalen

Tusse has won Melodifestivalen with 'Voices', booking his place at Eurovision 2021.

The 19-year-old winner of Swedish Idol in 2019 was making his Melodifestivalen debut.

The result was determined by a mixture of jury and public votes, unlike the earlier rounds which were determined by public vote only. The jury consisted of eight international panels representing Albania, Cyprus, France, Great Britain, Iceland, Israel, The Netherlands and Switzerland.

After the jury votes were announced, Tusse was in the lead by 10 points over Eric Saade and Dotter. He also won the televote over The Mamas and Clara Klingenström. Ultimately he won on 175 points over Eric Saade on 118 and The Mamas on 106.

Voices was written by Joy Deb, Linnea Deb, Jimmy "Joker" Thörnfeldt and Anderz Wrethov.

Sweden have won the Eurovision Song Contest six times, with their most recent win being in 2015. They have only failed to qualify for the final once (2010) since the semi-finals were introduced in 2004. They will be hoping that Tusse can continue their 11 year qualifying streak.
