Sweden Wins 60th Eurovision Song Contest!

Sweden wins Eurovision 2015 Song Contest!! It was a record breaking event and the 60th Anniversary of the Song Contest.  Votes had been received from 36 countries only when the hostesses for the evening announced that the maths were in and no other country would catch up and declared Sweden the winner with 328 points.  The remaining 4 countries then proceeded to announce their votes and when the final votes were in, Sweden had 365 points and was 62 points ahead of second place - Russia.

At the half way point, Russia was leading with Sweden fast behind.  However, the tables turned when the voting results of the 36th country - Cyprus came in.  Cyprus gave Sweden 10 points and at that point, no other country would be able to catch up even if they received 12 points from the countries whose votes were yet to be announced.  Sweden was announced the winner and the remaining four countries allowed to finish announcing their results.
