Eurovision 2023 fix claims as furious fans spot major ‘clue’ Sweden would win
Eurovision Song Contest fans are calling Sweden’s win a “fix” after they reckon they spotted a major clue during the Grand Final.
The hit singing competition, which is watched by millions worldwide, reached its end on Saturday night (May 13) at the M&S Bank Arena in Liverpool.
And it’s safe to say viewers were left with their jaws on the floor as 26 acts put on show-stopping performances in a bid to get their hands on the coveted trophy.

But it was Sweden who stormed to victory with their act, Loreen who was crowned the champ – making history as the first woman to win the competition twice.
However, some fans reckon it was planned that the singer-songwriter would be taking home the crown – after noticing something rather odd.
Taking to Twitter, eagle-eyed fans noted how Loreen was still wearing her microphone long after she'd stepped off stage.
“Did they already give Loreen the head mic for her performance? Or is this just for the interview, do they normally double-mic people?” mused one viewer.
Another fumed: “Eurovision is a fix, shouldn’t be allowing contestants who have won it before to compete again, unfair on the up and comers who have no publicity yet."
“Look I'm not saying it's rigged but… Sweden winning the year before the anniversary of ABBA's win seems entirely too convenient to me,” agreed a third viewer.
While a fourth raged: "What an absolute FIX!"
It was a nail-biting showdown between Finland and Sweden at the end of the show, as the two acts were left head to head in the final moment.
But Sweden managed to come out on top, finishing with 583 points while Finland were close behind with 526 points.
When the winner was announced, Finland’s wildly-popular Käärijä looked utterly devastated as they realised they wouldn't be taking home the crown.
Loreen started the night as the favourite and the 39-year-old's triumphant win means Sweden have equalled Ireland’s record seven Eurovision wins.
The United Kingdom ended up with just 24 points and came in second last place. They beat only Germany, who managed to bag 18 points.
