  1. Well, what a night...

    Phew! Well, that's it for another year. Thanks for joining us on our rollercoaster ride. It's safe to say we're feeling much more upbeat this year after the UK came second! Feels very surreal even writing that after the previous few years. And congratulations to Ukraine, deserved winners. We're not sure where the show will be in 2023 but we'll see you there.

    Here in Ukraine, people have been describing the country's win as a "victory".

    As soon as Kalush Orchestra were announced as the winners, fans flocked to Telegram in order to share their excitement at the news.

    Many people shared popular phrases such as "glory to the heroes".

    "We definitely have a victory ahead," one person wrote.

    Others thanked friendly countries for voting and sharing their support for Ukraine.

    "Thank you to all who supported. We are waiting and we believe in another victory. Glory to Ukraine!", one person wrote on Instagram.

  4. Who will host next year's competition?

    Ukraine's win raises a question over who will host next year's Eurovision ceremony.

    The winning country usually stages the show, but Ukraine is unlikely to have that capability.

    Its state broadcaster, UA:PBC was targetted in the opening days of the war, and their commentator, Timur Miroshnychenko, had to broadcast his contributions from an underground bunker.

    In the past, other broadcasters have stepped in when a country is unable or unwilling to host the contest... most recently in 1980, when the Netherlands took over from Israel, who declined to run the show after winning in two consecutive years.

    Eurovision organisers the EBU have just released a statement saying they will consider all options for 2023.

    "Obviously, there are unique challenges involved in hosting next year's competition," the statement read.

    "However, as in any other year, we look forward to discussing all the requirements and responsibilities involved in hosting the competition with UA:PBC and all other stakeholders to ensure we have the most suitable set-up for the 67th Eurovision Song Contest."

  5. TikTok congratulate Sam Ryder

    UK entry Sam found fame and a huge fanbase via TikTok after he began posting covers during the first Covid-19 lockdown in 2020.

    In a statement, Tik Tok said: “From Sam’s very first TikTok, to his fantastic result at Eurovison, we’ve been fans every step of the way. Our community always knew his star power, his artistic talent and his phenomenal voice, and we’re delighted that the world has seen it too. Congratulations to Sam and all his team on his superb result and of course Ukraine as very worthy winners.”
