Azerbaijan win Eurovision
This year’s Eurovision song contest was quite an upset last night (May 14), as bookie favourites France, Ireland and the UK ended up with mid-table results while Azerbaijan took the title.
Although the competition in Dusseldorf was viewed in the UK as a battle of boy bands, with 00s group Blue behind the Union Jack and twins Jedward up for Ireland, Europe seemed to disagree and voted heavily for power-pop duo Ell and Nikki’s romantic duet ‘Running Scared’.
Favourite to win, Amaury Vassili of France, came in 15th place while outsiders Italy managed to shock everyone by landing in at second place.
