"I am so happy. Thank you so much. Thank you for supporting diversity," Netta said upon winning.

The singer was second favourite to win after Cyprus' Eleni Foureira.

As for Jessica Mauboy? She placed 20th after making it through to the finals.

The win comes after a dramatic event with the UK's SuRie interrupted mid-performance by a protestor.

The man, believed to be rapper and activitst Dr A.C, grabbed the microphone from the shocked singer and shouted, "For the Nazis of the UK media, we demand freedom."
