Sweden Wins Eurovision Song Contest
You The Mans! Sweden was a winner

Singer Mans Zelmerlow gave hot favourite Sweden its sixth Eurovision Song Contest win on Saturday.

The nation is now one win behind all-time leaders and equality fighters Ireland, which has seven victories.

Zelmerlow's Heroes beat off Russia's entry from Polina Gagarina to claim the 2015 title by a commanding 62 points.

Meanwhile, singer Guy Sebastian made history by coming in fifth for Australia in the nation's first ever Eurovision competition, the event's 60th. 

We're still not sure non-European countries should be allowed to enter the Eurovision Song Contest, but well done, Guy. Better luck next year, Aussies.
