The Wiener takes it all? A review of the 2014 Eurovision results

Saturday’s Eurovision Song Contest (ESC) from Copenhagen was hilarious as usual with acts from all over Europe and some more or less sensible gimmicks: a circular piano, a giant hamster wheel, a sea-saw, or indeed a beard and fancy dress.

Sweden was seen as the favourite, followed by Austria, Netherlands, Armenia and the UK.
