Due to the fact that in Moscow, the time is two hours ahead of CET, the after show party did not begin until well after 3.00am local time! For this reason there were not many delegations in attendance. A VIP room was sectioned off where artists could unwind after the show and say their farewells to friends new and old before departing in their separate ways. Dima Bilan made a brief appearance at the party, and was reunited with his winning team from Belgrade. Jade Ewen and the United Kingdom delegation said that they were very pleased with the fifth place achieved.
