The only two to ever do it.

Over the weekend, Swedish Eurovision representative Loreen made history by becoming the first woman to ever win the song contest twice, placing Sweden beside Ireland as the country with the most wins ever.

While we scramble to find the perfect artist to restore our former Euro glory (a megaband featuring CMAT, Hozier, Lyra and Jedward perhaps?), Loreen has been busy putting out feelers for a potential duet with Ireland's OG Eurovision darling, Johnny Logan.

At a press conference following her win, Loreen was asked if she would consider a project with the Hold Me Now singer.

She replied: “If he wanted to, but what if he says no?


“That would be nice, a ballad maybe.”

Melbourne-born Eurovision vet Johnny hasn't responded to the offer just yet - maybe he's busy workshopping for a potential hat-trick performance in time for next year.

Loreen's win with her song Tattoo means that next years' Eurovision will be hosted in Sweden - on the 50th anniversary of ABBA's historic 1974 win with Waterloo.

Johnny Logan first won the Eurovision in 1980 with What's Another Year? and made history by winning a second time with Hold Me Now in 1987. He also composed Ireland's winning 1992 song Why Me? performed by Linda Martin.
