Chosen by Måns Zelerlöw

“Soldi stands out because Mahmood was so laid back and cool. When a song hits you as hard as Soldi does, in a language you don’t understand, and you still sing along to it, that gives a singer extra points in my book. And the signature hand clap [stands out].

“The fact that I was there that year also makes it more special, I think. When we went out afterwards, in every club we were at, we just wanted to hear Soldi.
