Swedish singer Loreen went down in Eurovision history with her second victory. Now evidence has reportedly surfaced that the winning song Tattoo is plagiarized!

Swedish star of flowers with last night’s victory, she became the only woman who managed to win the biggest music competition twice, Eurovision. While many are excited about her win again, as she collected the most points according to the judging panels of all this year’s participating countries, while the Finnish artist convinced people the most, it seems that Sweden did not expect the truth about the winning song to come out at all. day.

Allegation supported by evidence

A recording of the song, which was created back in 2005, appeared in the public domain. It is a song by a Ukrainian artist Mike Newton, which has now itself reported its copyright infringement. Many are now convinced that Loreen broke the strictest rule of participating in the prestigious music competition. Otherwise, even before the grand final of this year’s Eurovision Song Contest, Loreen was struggling with accusations that her song Tattoo contains much of the poem The Winner Takes It All groups ABBA and songs Flying Free music groups Aerial Bridgebut the Ukrainian singer Mika raised the most dust.

Loreen: “I don’t have time for this stuff!”

Eurovision winner Loreen also responded to the harsh accusations of many viewers: “To be honest, I don’t really put too much energy into it. I don’t have time for these things. I was representing Sweden, I was putting all my energy into the performance, so it was a waste of time for this kind of thing,” said Loreen. Many viewers from all participating countries of the music competition are also convinced that Sweden’s victory this year was “arranged” so that Eurovision can be held in Sweden for the second year, when – you won’t believe it – the 50th anniversary of the victory ABBA at Eurovision Coincidence or was it really all staged?

Expert commentary

We also asked two well-known Slovenian musicians to comment on the plagiarism of the song Tattoo, who said: “The song has obvious elements of songs by ABBA, Pont Aeri and singer Mike Newton. To be able to say that something is plagiarism, there must be four measures of the measuring unit, that it is theft, that is, that in these four measures chords and harmonies and other elements are stolen. In the case of the part of The Winner Takes It All, the name of the song Tattoo borrows three bars, and the fourth is a tone higher than the original. The song Tattoo, however, has far too many similarities to 2005’s Ukrainian, too much to ignore. This kind of thing can’t just be swept under the rug.
