And it’s a wrap from Kirsty Blake Knox in Malmo… 

Switzerland has been crowned the winner of the 68th Eurovision song contest. 

Non-binary singer Nemo topped with their Popera track The Code about self-discovery. 
Ireland’s entrant Bambie Thug came sixth with their song Doomsday Blue. 
Bambie Thug’s performance was met with rapturous applause and they finished their performance with the words ‘Love will always triumph over hate’. 
It is the most successful entrant Ireland has had in the Eurovision in recent years – the last time Ireland qualified for the Grand Final was in 2018 with Ryan O’Shaughnessy’s Together. 

The last time Ireland came sixth in the Grand Final was almost a quarter of a century ago in 2000 with Eamonn Toal Millennium of Love.
