Amsterdam . Mans Zelmerlöw has fallen into its first Eurovision brawl.
Finnish newspaper writes today how he sawed the Finnish entry in the competition.
– I just have clearly said that I do not like about the song, says Måns.
Mans Zelmerlöw , 28, is in Amsterdam as part of their marketing for the Eurovision Song Contest .
In the Dutch capital, he becomes aware that he has fallen into its first Eurovision brawl. And with the Finnish punk group Pertti Kurikka’s Name Day which consists of four musicians with developmental disabilities.
After Zelmerlöw on Friday evening participated in the Finnish finale of “The Voice” writes, among other things, the Finnish newspaper Ilta-Sanomat that Måns should have squared the Finnish group with the words:
– It’s almost not even a song.
“It may well have to think”
Mans Zelmerlöw laughs when he hears of the headlines he has created in Finland.
– Is it true? I sawed them not at all, he says.
But the explanation probably can not be described as anything other than a sawing it either.
– I just have clearly said that I do not like about the song. And there you could get to like? But I also said that I think it’s very nice to Finland to send a contribution like that because that is what Eurovision is all about, to celebrate difference. So no, I hope they wrote just that and nothing else. But the song, no one can think that it’s a good song, right? But the band is cool, says Måns Zelmerlöw Nöjesbladet.

Gulf Pertti Kurikka’s Name Day compete in the first semifinal, Tuesday, May 19 Mans Zelmerlöw compete first in the other semifinal Thursday 21 May, so they do not risk having to make up for what song you can actually like most until about two to get to the final of the Eurovision Song Contest.
