Lena is the winner!
After another eventful night, Lena Meyer-Landrut won for Germany with her song "Satellite". She's a bit kooky, our Lena. After she won, she asked if one of the presenters could hold the trophy because she "wasn't that strong" and if she "really had to sing it again" to close the show.
Following the contest on Twitter was really fun, my favourite comment of the thousands that flashed by was that Lena 'learned her English from Dick Van Dyke in Mary Poppins'. In fact her bizarre accent was the subject of much commentary, to the point that she sang about it at one of her press conferences:
The Germans really love Eurovision, so I am glad for them. Lena's from Hannover, so perhaps we'll all be there next year!
