German entrant Lena has overcome a continent to emerge victorious at Saturday evening’s Eurovision Song Contest at the Telenor Arena in Oslo, Norway.

Lena took the 2010 Eurovision title with her song Satellite, finishing with 246 points while Turkey finished in second place and Romania in third.

Teenage singer Josh Dubovie had carried British hopes at Saturday evening’s song competition but finished in last place out of 25 countries, scoring just ten points.

The 19-year-old, from Basildon, Essex, performed ballad That Sounds Good To Me at the annual singing competition though bookmakers had already ranked him as an outside bet.

Ahead of the ceremony, Dubovie’s odds to win were priced at 150/1 by William Hill, the bookie’s biggest price for a UK Eurovision entry, while the singer was judged at just 5/1 to be finish the song contest with „nul points”, with the UK last finishing Eurovision without a point after Jemini’s performance of Cry Baby in 2003.

The bookmakers’ favourite to win had been Azerbaijan entrant Safura, who performed the Swedish-written Drip Drop at Saturday’s contest in Oslo.

And after their entrant finished in the bottom five, Irish fans, meanwhile, did not realise their dreams of a second Eurovision win for redheaded singer Niamh Kavanagh, who had previously won Eurovision in 1993, the second of Ireland’s three consecutive Eurovision victories.
