Swedish trio, Herreys, sang "Nel blu dipinto di blu", which finished in third place at the 1958 Eurovision for Italy's Domenico Modugno. Bucks Fizz's "Making Your Mind Up", the winning entry for United Kingdom in 1981, was performed by Bobbysocks. The reprise concluded with all of the remaining performers, except Loreen, joining on stage to sing ABBA's Eurovision Song Contest 1974 winning entry, "Waterloo".
