2015 Eurovision Finals

The Eurovision 2015 finals were yesterday and it was my first time watching the show.  This was the 60th anniversary competition and there were 27 contestants vying for the title.

The competition was interesting but with so many performers the final night of competition lasted about 5,5 hours.

Unfortunately the Czech duo of Marta Jandová and Václav Noid Bárta didn't do so well.  They competed in semi-finals #2 but their song, Hope Never Dies, didn't make it to the finals.  Hopefully the Czechs will compete again next year.

Final 27 results
Sweden came in 1st place with 365 points.  Russia was second with 303 points and Italy came in third place with 292 points.  Since Sweden won it will host the 2016 competition.

The winner was Måns Zelmerlöw with his song Heroes.  Here's the winning performance from YouTube.
