"Euphoria" (Final) on YouTube

"Euphoria" is a song performed by Swedish singer Loreen. It was released on 26 February 2012 as the third single –first single internationally– from her debut studio album, Heal (2012). The song was written by Thomas G:son, Peter Boström and produced by Boström and SeventyEight. It represented Sweden in the Eurovision Song Contest 2012 held in Baku, Azerbaijan. It won the contest with a total of 372 points, at the time the second-highest point total in the contest's history.[2] It received the highest number of maximum (12) points until then, with eighteen countries giving the song their top marks.

"Euphoria" received critical acclaim from most music critics. Commercially, the song was an instant success both in Sweden and in the rest of Europe. It debuted at number twelve in Loreen's home country Sweden, before reaching number one, staying there for six weeks. The song has been certified 10 times Platinum, selling 400,000 copies there. Outside of Sweden, the song peaked at number one in 16 countries across Europe, the most chart-topping positions of any Eurovision winner. The song topped the Euro Digital Songs chart weeks after the competition.[3]

Background[edit]

Conception[edit]

"Euphoria" was written by Thomas G:son and Peter Boström, and was produced by Boström and SeventyEight.[1][4]

National Selection[edit]

Loreen entered "Euphoria" at the 2012 edition of the Melodifestivalen at the Vida Arena in Växjö where she performed it during the first round of the competition. She automatically advanced to the final after it was among the top 2 song entries that received the highest votes. On 10 March 2012, during the final at the Globen Arena in Stockholm, she performed the song once more while being judged by eleven international juries and voted by the Swedish people's televote. These were then combined for a final result. She eventually finished in first place, winning the competition, after receiving the highest points from both the international juries and the televoting, with a grand total of 268 points. It was reported that a record figure of more than 670,000 of the four million viewers called in to vote for her song.[5][6] As that Melodifestivalen was organised by Sveriges Television (SVT) to select its song and performer for the 57th edition of the Eurovision Song Contest, the song became the Swedish entrant, and Loreen the performer, for Eurovision.[7]

Eurovision[edit]

On 24 May 2012, the second semi-final of the Eurovision Song Contest was held in the Baku Crystal Hall in Baku hosted by İctimai Television (İTV) and broadcast live throughout the continent. Loreen performed "Euphoria" eleventh on the evening. After the grand final it was revealed that it had received in its semi-final 181 points, placing first and qualifying for the grand final.[8] On 26 May 2012, she performed the song again in the grand final seventeenth on the evening.[9] Both her Melodifestivalen and Eurovision performances were directed by Finnish choreographer Ambra Succi.

At the close of voting, it eventually placed first with a total of 372 points, just fifteen points shy of the (then) all-time record of 387, which is held by 2009 winner "Fairytale" by Alexander Rybak.[10] Additionally, it broke the record for having received the most 12 points awarded by eighteen other participating countries. In total, it received points from forty of the voting forty-two countries –excluding itself–. The only country that did not award it any points was Italy.[11]

Aftermath[edit]

On 27 May 2012, the song was performed live by the Swedish Royal Guards of the Stockholm Castle.[12] On 9 March 2013, during the Melodifestivalen 2013 final, the song was performed by Adolf Fredrik's Music School with sign language interpretation from the Manilla School alongside Loreen, and was later made available for digital download.[13] On 14 May 2013, they reprised this performance as the opening act of the first semi-final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2013 in Malmö.[14]

On 31 March 2015, Loreen performed the song in the Eurovision sixtieth anniversary show Eurovision Song Contest's Greatest Hits held in London.[15][16] On 7 May 2024, Johnny Logan performed the song during the first semi-final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2024 in Malmö.[17]

Music video[edit]

Television music channels initially used the Melodifestivalen 2012 performance as the official music video.[18] Loreen later confirmed the release of an official music video. Loreen tweeted pictures from the set of the music video which was filmed on 13 June 2012. The video premiered on 5 July on Warner Music Sweden's YouTube channel.[19] The video, filmed in a field on the outskirts of Stockholm, features Loreen dancing in a field of tall grass and eventually snow.

Critical reception[edit]

Prior to the song contest, it was ranked highly on many prediction polls to win most notably by the OGAE members.[5][20] The song also received critical acclaim. SameSame praised the song "The heavy bangs, the steely gaze, and that icy-yet-pleading vocal performance in 'Euphoria' all set the tone for what was to complete my Loreen experience."[21] Higher Plain Music wrote "the most straightforward dance track on the album and is still a killer track."[22] Music journalist Deban Aderemi of wiwibloggs noted that[23]'..Loreen's performance transcends borders. It is conceptual, yet so relatable. "Euphoria" provides the perfect template for a thousand remixes. Aderemi then goes on to award Loreen a score of 9/10. EscXtra considered that the string intro from the album version was the best part of the song while calling the song "brilliant."[24] Erika Brooks Adickman from Idolator had described the song as "infectious".[25] The Reflective Inklings had labelled the song as "Song of the Week". They gave it an extended review saying:

Euphoria is undoubtedly the best song of the pack that I have heard so far. It has Swedish elements sprinkled all over it. It is delicately done. The synths offer that aesthetic gloss that only makes the track go higher in terms of approval ratings. Upbeat would be a good way of describing Euphoria. Just like its predecessor (Popular), it can evoke feelings of great positivity onto its listener. Loreen shows tremendous composure in delivering those high notes. Hearing Loreen start slowly in terms of building that excitement in terms of her soon-to-be-sang high notes really got me pumped up.[26]

On 26 May, just before the finals began, it received two Marcel Bezençon Awards: the Artistic Award presented to the best artist as voted on by the commentators, and the Composer Award for the best and most original composition as voted on by the participating composers (Thomas G:son and Peter Boström).[27]

In 2019, Theresa Ziegler, editor-in-chief of The Gap, Austria's longest-standing pop culture magazine, wrote that "Euphoria" was the best pop song of the decade.[28]
