42 countries were represented in the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest in Stockholm. Russia was widely expected to win the contest but Ukraine took the trophy at the end of a nail-biting voting sequence. Poland's Michał Szpak scored strongly with the televoters but didn't win the hearts of the juries finishing eighth in the Grand Final.
