Last year’s Swedish Eurovision Song Contest singer Sanna Nielsen was on stage at the SVT Melodifestivalen 2015 on Saturday night where she sang a duet with iconic Swedish singer Monica Zetterlund. Well. Sort of.

Nielsen sang Zetterlund’s famous song ‘En gång i Stockholm‘ from the Eurovision Song Contest in 1963, with a video of Zetterlund singing the song right alongside her.

The effect, however, was quite dramatic with Sanna appearing in black and white to begin with, to match the old video, and then transforming into color towards the end of the song.

As for how Monica Zetterlund did in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1963? Sweden came in dead last. Hard to believe with this mesmerizingly beautiful song.
