Description   The winner of the 36th Eurovision Song Contest, Swedish pop singer Carola, holds the trophy aloft as she celebrates on stage at Studio 15 di Cinecittà in Rome, Italy, on 4 May 1991. She is surrounded by her backing singers and dancers, together with conductor Anders Berglund (first left, wearing a bow-tie) and composer/lyricist Stephan Berg (wearing a blue tie).

Carola's winning song, 'Fångad av en stormvind' ('Captured by a Lovestorm'), scored a total of 146 points and initially tied with France for first place, but was declared the winner because Sweden received a greater number of 10-point scores.

RTÉ Television and RTÉ Radio both broadcast the 1991 Eurovision Song Contest live. The RTÉ Guide previewed it on 3 May 1991.
