I guess there's a stir over Latvia not making it to the final.

How could they not with a song like this?

But, but... they made the effort and sang in English!

And all that innuendo!

CNN thought there was a spate of panic-buying in Finland on account of Russia. No, it was people getting snacks in ready for Eurovision.

Not as big of a fan base as ice hockey which is also going on in the form of the world championships. But as with with many other niche fandoms, we are more noticeable than the sports fans.

Phew, the ESC points awarding ceremony deserves an award of its own. It keeps the suspense high right until the end.

Surprise second: UK.
Of course Ukraine got all the public votes, and also enough jury votes to push it into the win, but the UK being the jury winner made it the interesting one this year. :unitedkingdom:

I have watched a little of the American Song contest (or whatever it is called) and I feel it has potential, but really needs to find it's own identity to inspire people the way ESC does. It is only the first year, so I don't think anyone expects it to be born fully formed.
