Macclesfield Express - - LEISURE -

Gra­ham Nor­ton com­men­tates on the 61st mu­si­cal ex­trav­a­ganza from Swe­den, who won last year with Heroes by Mans Zelmer­low. He’ll be back this year, co-host­ing tonight’s show from the Stock­holm’s Globe Arena with Pe­tra Mede. All eyes with be on Joe and Jake, who are aim­ing to be­come the first UK win­ners since 1997 with their song You’re Not Alone. How­ever, they are likely to face stiff com­pe­ti­tion from the 25 other coun­tries, in­clud­ing the host na­tion’s 17-yearold Frans with his up­beat bal­lad If I Were Sorry.
