During the past month, the excitement and anticipation has been building, culminating in the two semi finals and the grand final.
A dictionary of adjectives would fail to properly describe the brilliant and the bizarre of this year's Eurovision. It has to be seen to be believed.
As I slump into a deep depression waiting for next year's Eurovision, let's reflect on Eurovision 2014 and hope the next 11 months pass quickly.
This year was all about facial hair; those who had it and those who didn't but wanted it.
|Winner Conchita Wurst from Austria|
|France's Twin Twin, who sang Moustache, came last|
There was a lot of cooking... of sorts
|Latvia with Cake to Bake|
|Belarus with Cheesecake|
We got physical
|Ukraine had a guy in a hamster wheel for some reason|
|Russia had a seesaw|
|Greece had a trampoline|
|Azerbaijan had an acrobat|
Iceland stole their costumes from The Wiggles
The Netherlands went a little bit country 'n' western
Sweden taught me how to "undo my sad"
Poland showed us how to churn butter and wash clothes with breasts
|Poland had all its assets on show|
Italy showed us everything, even her "Colosseum"
The UK channelled gladiators
Russia gave us some twins joined at the pony tail
Romania developed a circular keyboard
Hungary sang a high energy, jaunty tune about domestic violence
Norway rolled out a gentle Viking giant
"Our Jess" did us proud representing Australia (confusing millions of children studying European geography)
Bring on Austria 2015!
