Excitement mounts as Sweden prepares the inaugural semi-final of Eurovision 2024 tomorrow, May 7, showcasing 15 out of the 37 participating countries.

Last year, Sweden's Loreen, whose real name is Zineb Nora Talhaoui, became the first woman in history to become a two-time champion as a performer. She took home the top prize in 2023 in Liverpool, England, her ballad 'Tattoo' earning 583 points across the board. But this was Loreen's second win, as she previously won in 2012 with her song 'Euphoria.'  Though it's not the first time an artist has won twice (Johnny Logan of Ireland did it in 1980 and 1987), it's the first time a woman has done it.

The competition, which attracts a huge TV audience around the world each year, began back in 1956 and features singers representing countries across Europe and, in several cases, beyond.
