Although Eric & Danny were always the top favourites it was never certain if the fan base of both guys and the songs would convert into scores - mainly as so much this year depended on the new international juries. The voting at the Globen final was split into 2 parts, firstly the international round-up of european juries. This gave a mixed votes , but still placed the 2 swedish faves on top with Sanna Neilson a close 3rd place. The final public voting continues after the international voting which was very good idea.
When that public vote was finally closed- these televote loaded scores were added to the scoreboard- it became anyone contest ? It was down to who got the most public votes on the night- Danny or Eric Saade- the public choose the same 'Popular' Eric Saade is the winner. He returned for the second year runnng and took the Mf prize for 2011 .
Well done Eric- final scoreboard below
