  • The winner of the Eurovision Song Contest was announced as Loreen from Sweden during Saturday evening's (May 13) grand final.

    It was a nail-biting showdown between Finland and Sweden, as the two acts were left head to head in the final moment.

    But Sweden managed to come out on top, finishing with 583 points while Finland were close behind with 526 points.

    When the winner was announced, Finland’s wildly-popular Käärijä looked utterly devastated as they realised they wouldn't be taking home the crown.

    Swedish singer-songwriter Loreen started the night as the favourite and the 39-year-old's triumphant win means Sweden have equalled Ireland’s record seven Eurovision wins.

    Unfortunately, it wasn't the UK's year once again and Mae Muller was dealt a crushing blow before the grand final aired, with bookmakers Ladbrokes pricing her at just 25/1 to finish the nights with zero points – while 3/1 said she would finish last.

    The United Kingdom ended up with just 24 points and came in second last place. They beat only Germany, who managed to bag 18 points.

    But fans felt Mae Muller's performance wasn't worthy of a second to last place finish and took to social media to share their thoughts.

    "Really gutted for Mae Muller. I Wrote A Song is a great catchy pop tune but it just didn’t land as a live performance!" shared one person.

    A second fan added: "It should've been Mae You know that it should have been Mae" as another wrote: "JUSTICE FOR MAE MULLER. She didn’t deserve that low of a ranking."

    Someone else shared: "Chuffed for Loreen but heartbroken for Mae. She did not deserve that."

    Another fan penned: "Glorious evening as always even if the UK was robbed (as always)."

    While a fifth shared: "That was unfortunately a very meh end to #Eurovision. Finland – robbed. UK – did not deserve 2nd to last place. Sweden – overrated.

    This year's highly anticipated contest was presented by Graham Norton, Alesha Dixon, Julia Sanina and Hannah Waddingham.
