13 of the most important moments from the Eurovision final 2015

It’s been a long night.

THE EUROVISION 2015 has come to a close, with Mans Zelmerlow taking the crown for Sweden.

It was a long, tough journey, but we got there.

1. Conchita literally rose like a phoenix

Well, was lowered to the stage like a phoenix doesn’t have as good a ring to it.

She was basically the main event.

2. France took a load of naked men on stage

OK, not quite, but it sure looked like it for a minute.

3. The UK mortified themselves

OK, OK, we didn’t get in but at least we didn’t enter this.

They got five points though, thanks partially to us.

Now now, don’t be jealous.

4. There was SO MUCH KISSING

In the audience.

6. The wind machine was a very real and constant source of distress

At least for those watching. The beaufort scale exploded.

11. Women announcers wouldn’t stop disappearing

Sure, it was a technical fault, but we also suspect Suzy, Estonia and Nadia from Georgia just went to black before they could announce their points.
