Eurovision 2013 | The winners and losers
So there we have it for another year as Denmark win comfortably with 281 points and Paddy will have to dig deep on the entry that cornered a third of the market.
The story of the night – apart from the winner – was was the abysmal showing of Ireland and the UK. Bonnie Tyler finished 19th for England, while Ryan Dolan came last for Ireland with Only Love Survives securing just five votes.
Graham Norton managed to live broadcast for the BBC and fed the Twitter machine at the same time.
Team Norton tweeted at 10.58pm.

Don’t know what put the Terry idea in their head….
Waiting for John Terry to emerge on stage with Bonnie, in full Chelsea kit. With sequins on it, so as to fit in.
