We managed to obtain a meagre 5 points which put us 24th in the competition. But hey, at least we beat France, Austria and Germany, and whilst our entry wasn’t the worst thing in the world, it was a sign of the UK trying too hard to fit in. It combined about 7 different genres of music in the same song. Nice try guys:
One country which definitely deserved more points was Spain, and I’m not just saying that because Edurne (the entrant) was so attractive. She had an incredibly commanding presence on stage which made her sound like some sort of ancient goddess, even though I haven’t a clue what she was singing about. The girl had some pipes on her:
It was also Australia's debut performance, with Guy Sebastian putting in a Bruno Mars-esque performance which pleased fans of the contest. The debutante came fifth.
Lots of entries were incredibly good, and others embarrassingly forgettable. In the end it was a contest between Sweden and Russia. After last year's Eurovision decided to install anti-booing technology into the crowd so you could actually hear Russia sing, it looked like the Swedes would be fan favourite. Why? You know, that whole Ukraine/human rights thing.
We had some funny little jibes from Graham Norton in the voting round as so many cringeworthy presenters tried to make a funny joke. One was when a lovely woman from the Netherlands came on in a rather odd dress:
The prize for the most awkward presenter though has to go to Russia, who tried to give themselves 12 points. Not cool Russia.
Sweden performed one last time, with their impressive animation skills and Måns Zelmerlöws powerful vocals giving something for everyone to jig to. Well deserved Sweden!
