Loreen, born Lorine Zineb Nora Talhaoui, is a Swedish singer-songwriter hailing from Stockholm. Loreen first entered the public eye as a contestant on the Swedish version of talent show Pop Idol - Idol 2004 - in which she finished in fourth place. Loreen famously won Eurovision in 2012 with Euphoria, the track peaked at Number 3 on the Official Singles Chart the following week and became a much-loved Eurovision anthem. Then in 2023, she competed in, and won, the Eurovision Song Contest a second time - representing her home country Sweden in Liverpool, UK, with her entry Tattoo.
The week after her second Eurovision win was the first time in 71 years of the Official Chart (and in the Eurovision Song Contest's 67-year history), that four tracks from the contest gatecrashed the UK Top 10 - the most Eurovision entries in the Official Singles Chart Top 10 simultaneously ever. Tattoo landed at Number 2, giving Loreen a new personal best on the UK chart, Finland runner-up Käärijä rocked up at Number 6 with Cha Cha Cha, followed by the UK entry Mae Muller's I Wrote A Song at Number 9. Finally Norway representative Alessandra rounded out the flurry of entries, debuting at Number 10 with epic synth-pop slammer Queen of Kings.
