Eurovision Song Contest 2015: who won the competition?

After a night of upsets, shrill singing and gloriously camp performances, we have the 2015 Eurovision winner. Sweden has been crowned the 60th winner of the singing competition in a result that almost everyone saw coming.

Måns Zelmerlöw's 'Heroes' was the clear frontrunner of the night and kept extending its lead as the results came in. Måns scored an impressive 365 points. This result makes them the first country to win Eurovision twice in the 21st century

Måns said: "I have so much to say right now. I'm so extremely happy and I want to thank all of you for voting and supporting me, my entire team, and Fredric and David, who couldn't be here but made this performance possible.

"And I just want to say that we are all heroes no matter who we love, who we are, what we believe, we are all heroes."

Russia was the closest competitor for Sweden, finishing on 303 points.

As for the United Kingdom, we fared as dismally as expected. Electro Velvet finished 24th in the rankings.

It wasn't a good night for Austria either. They're now the first host country to score nul points – and it's the first host and previous winner to come last since 1958.
