Israel claimed the title of Eurovision champions for 2018 in Lisbon last night, with Cyprus and Austria not too far behind.

Netta and her quirky dance song 'Toy' impressed the crowds across the continent and she thanked the juries and the public for "choosing different."

She and the Cyprus entry were two of the favourites, while the Czech Republic, who were also tipped to do well, didn't really threaten.

Here's the song that Europe chose as their number one:

Ireland's Ryan O'Shaughnessy finished in a respectable 16th place for his song 'Together'.

The shock of the night was that the UK's hopeful SuRie was interrupted by a stage invader who grabbed her microphone during her performance.
