German singer Lena won the 55th annual Eurovision Song Contest in Oslo on Saturday.
Lena performed 'Satellite,' which is already a chart hit across much of central Europe, and won a clear majority of the points on offer. Her 246-point total beat the nearest competitor, Turkey's maNga, by a full 76 points.
Lena was chosen to represent the Deutsche Nationalmannschaft by way of the Idol-style talent contest, entitled Unser Star für Oslo (Our Star for Oslo).
There was some controversy at the beginning of the show, as the Spanish entry, performed by Daniel Digas, was interrupted by a stage invader, who later turned out to be serial offender Jimmy Jump. The Spanish were allowed to perform their song in full again at the end of the ceremony, but it failed to lift them above a respectable mid-table finish.
Jump is best known for having invaded the pitch before the Euro 2004 football final and throwing a Catalan flag in the face of Portuguese captain Luis Figo, who had recently left Barcelona for arch-rivals Real Madrid.
They're no Serbia
God i hate this shit. Horrible bubblegum pop with neighbouring countries voting for eachother to win.
hotter than hayley .>
tbh, I kinda liked the winning song, though it's nothing to brag about. Anyway, Ewwwwrovision is something i watch evreytime it comes up in television - it's just so fucking ridiculously stupid, works like a great comedy for me
no discussion needed, look at this:
Song's crap, but she's hella hot. So many ladyboys/fat chicks/really camp guys this year. Oh wait, it's Europe. Never mind.
^ That comment has been too lame and too old even before the internet existed.
Moldova should have won
As a European, I take pride of our ladyboys, fat chicks and camps guys, and like nothing more than watching them parade around for my humble amusement, Mr. Iamolderthantheinternetlol.
Moldova and Estonia were awesome
DAT SAX DANCE
I might be more impressed if I knew what any of this shit was.
Or not. Probably not.
Think of American Idol taking the "best" singer from each state and having them compete.
Digging: Lady Gaga - Artpop
I love Eurovison so much.
Germany didn't deserve to win (I was barracking for Turkey) but Lena is pretty hot.
Also, Moldova Saxophonist ftw. Thats my kind of dancing!
Moldova's song was actually catchy as hell haha, I kinda even enjoyed it. Also, everyone saying the sax-man was awesome are 100% right!
@alucard You just pwnd me :D
I actually wrote down a top ten while watching it. I can't remember al of it, but Turkey and Bosnia were 2nd and 3rd, Iceland were 5th and Russia (yeah...) were 10th
My top five (in no order after Turkey) was:
my top 5 was probably:
2) Belgium (yeah I liked the wimpy guy with a guitar, sue me)
It was a hilariously fun song.
5. Denmark (due to nostalgic 80s cheese)

Serbia was soooooo creepy.
...and you could have plugged the volcano with the lady from Iceland.
Eurovision is a complete joke.
Digging: Nektar - Journey to the Centre of the Eye
really surprised. Usually Eurovision kisses the ex-Soviet countries contestants ass big time.
To be fair, Germany is the only country that could afford to host it next year, they'd be paying for it anyway if any other country hosted it. xD
Is it wrong that despite being British i was hoping we would come last and cheered when Belarus got a lot of points making us last lol
I wish I could be like that sax guy.
