Euphoria was the Swedish entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 2012 in Baku performed by Loreen after storming to victory at Melodifestivalen, the Swedish national selection contest. It is a song in the Eurodance genre with some slow parts and a high-energy chorus.

It qualified from the second semifinal in first place. In the final, it was performed 17th following Greece and preceding Turkey. At the close of voting, it was declared the winner with 372 points, giving Sweden its 5th victory and shattering the record for the most 12-point scores awarded to a single country with 18 (a record since shared with Salvador Sobral in 2017 when he received 18 sets of 12s from the national juries).

After the contest, "Euphoria" became a massive hit around the continent, topping the charts in 19 countries and even peaking in the top 40 in Australia. In the United Kingdom, it debuted at #3, making it the highest-charting non-British Eurovision entry since Hold Me Now in 1987.

It has also won the annual ESC 250 countdown every year since 2012.

Lyrics

Why, why can't this moment last forevermore?
Tonight, tonight eternity's an open door
No, don't ever stop doing the things you do
Don't go, in every breath I take I'm breathing you

Euphoria
Forever, till the end of time
From now on, only you and I
We're going u-u-u-u-u-up...
Euphoria
An everlasting piece of art
A beating love within my heart
We're going u-u-u-u-u-up...

We are here, we're all alone in our own universe
We are free, where everything's allowed and love comes first
Forever and ever together, we sail into infinity
We're higher and higher and higher, we're reaching for divinity

Euphoria
Forever, till the end of time
From now on, only you and I
We're going u-u-u-u-u-up...
Euphoria
An everlasting piece of art
A beating love within my heart
We're going u-u-u-u-u-up...

Forever we sail into infinity
We're higher, we're reaching for divinity
Euphoria... euphoria...
We're going u-u-u-u-u-up...

Euphoria
An everlasting piece of art
A beating love within my heart
We're going up...
Euphoria... euphoria...
We're going u-u-u-u-u-up...
