We asked ten Stockholmers whether they could tell us who was representing Sweden on Saturday night. If you don't know - you're not alone, don't worry.
But perhaps surprisingly, many didn't know and didn't care.
One even said he'd prefer to spend Saturday "doing something useful" like having a beer. His friends might be busy proving the "Nordic Bias" that Italians researchers have now proven permeates voting behaviour during voting.
"For Sweden, the bias is even more marked, with Denmark, Norway, Finland and Estonia all giving it special treatment in voting," The Local Norway reported on Friday.

Sweden's entrant, 29-year-old Sanna Nielsen, is a hot-tipped favourite to win the competition if she can beat the likes of Conchita Wurst, the bearded lady from Austria.
