It's that time again! Mmm Eurovision. Gotta love a song contest that encompasses all of Europe. Actually got to watch the semi-finals live, but missed the finals (might get to see the recast).

This years winners were:

1. Norway - "Fairytale" by Alexander Rybak

2. Iceland - "Is it True?" by Yohanna

3. Azerbaijan - "Always" by AySel and Arash

4. Turkey - "Dum Tek Tek" by Hadise

5. England - "It's My Time" by Jade Ewan

6. Estonia - "Randajad" by Urban Symphony (in Estonian)

7. Greece - "This is Our Night" by Sakis Rouvas

8. France - "Et s'il fallait le faire" by Patricia Kaas (in French)

9. Bosnia and Herzegovina - "Bistra voda" by Regina (in Bosnian)

10. Armenia - "Jan Jan" by Inga and Anush (in English and Armenian)

I also quite enjoyed Cyprus's entry "Firefly" by Christina Metaxa, Ireland's "Et Cetera" by Sinead Mulvey and Black Daisy, Slovenia's "Love Symphony" by Quartissimo featuring Martina Majerle, Ukraine's "Be My Valentie (Anti-Crisis Girl)" by Svetlana Loboda, and Israel's "There Must Be Another Way" by Noa & Mira Awad.

Also, the ceremonies opened with a performance by Cirque de Soleil.
