It is 379 days since Conchita Wurst lifted the trophy for Austria at the 59th edition of the Eurovision Song Contest in Copenhagen, Denmark. Immediately afterwards we did not even know where we would be travelling to in Austria this year. Piece by piece everything came together until tonight, when the winner was chosen by a 50/50 jury vote from 40 countries.
The winner is #SWE Sweden, with 365 points, 62 ahead of second place #RUS Russia. In third place came #ITA Italy with 292 points.
#AUS Australia ended in fifth place with 196 points, getting maximum twelve points from winners Sweden and hosts Austria.
Måns Zelmerlöw was announced winner before #NOR Norway voted, 37 of 40 (different to the order we published as some countries needed to be called back due to technical faults.)
Hosts #AUT Austria and #GER Germany scored nul points.
We hope you have had a wonderful evening and a great Eurovision season. It has been a pleasure bringing you all the news at it happened and we thank you for your continued support!
