So, that’s it for another year! The Eurovision Song Contest 2016 has come to an end, but not without a bang.

With over 7 million tweets, it was definitely one to remember. Hosted in Stockholm, Sweden, by  Måns Zelmerlöw and Petra Mede, the European frenzy came to many of topics throughout the show, which isn’t out of the norm, however this year, all the talk was for different reasons.

It all started off very well when it was just exciting watching Eurovision being back on our screens after a whole year, and then from there it just got all a bit, well, different. The world watched Justin Timberlake grace the stage to perform his smash hit ‘Rock Your Body’ and his new single ‘Can’t Stop The Feeling,’ and then  Måns took to the stage to perform his new single ‘Fire In The Rain’ and last years winners single ‘Heroes.’ Then the new voting system started, starting off with the jury votes first, which Australia had in the bag hands down, but it wasn’t till the second half the voting where things got a little ‘heated’ shall we say. Australia held onto the lead until the very last moment when between Russia and Ukraine were awaiting their final scores to be added. Ukraine gained just over 300 points taking the lead, and Russia gained even more points, but didn’t have enough jury points to be able to catch up and take the lead.

All of this whilst the U.S and China were watching for the first time too. What a Eurovision to remember.

Congratulations to Jamala, and Ukraine for just nabbing the crown at this year’s contest, and congratulations to Dami Im for representing Australia ever so amazingly.
