Austrian drag act Conchita Wurst has won the 59th annual Eurovision Song Contest in Copenhagen, Denmark.
The singer had been second favourite to win behind Sweden going in to the competition.
Despite her best efforts, Sanna Nielsen was unable to bring the contest back to Sweden with her ballad, Undo, finishing third.
The Netherlands' The Common Linnets were a surprise challenger for Wurst, but placed second with their country-inspired song.
The UK's Molly Smitten-Downes finished 17th despite big hopes for her song Children of the Universe.
Ukraine opened the show with Mariya Yaremchuk performing alongside a giant hamster wheel on stage.
Azerbaijan entrant Dilara Kazimova's performance also employed circus skills from a trapeze artist.
The Greek entry encouraged the crowd to bounce to their song while they jumped on trampolines.
The Tolmachevy Sisters put on a see-saw act, although the pair were booed by the crowd in the arena during the results.
Iceland's colourful band, Pollaponk, drew comparisons with the Teletubbies on social media.
Poland also caused a stir with their act, which featured busty women churning butter and washing laundry on stage.
France's entry, Twin Twin, came last on the scoreboard, managing only two points - one each from Finland and Sweden.
