And finally, here is a resume of all the action by our great friends at BBC Eurovision:
And finally, the performances were finished off by Kaliopi from Macedonia, who treated the London Eurovision audience to her entry in Macedonian and English and as a special treat her non-qualifying previous Eurovision Song Contest entry from 1996.

The eighth act to take to the London Eurovision stage was a last minute addition: Kati Wolf was in London to help Compact Disco promote their entry to the Hungarians in London and performed her last year’s entry.
The seventh act was Sabina Babayeva from this year’s host country Azerbaijan who performed her Eurovision entry When the music dies.
The next act was Valentina Monetta from San Marino, who treated the audience to the first, disqualified, version of her Eurovision entry, as well as the official one and one other track.
The fifth act was Anggun from France. She was also celebrating her birthday in London and was presented with a birthday cake at the party!
The fourth act was the group Compact Disco from Hungary, who performed two songs for the London audience.
The third act was Filipa Sousa from Portugal, who had taken along her parents on their first ever flight! She charmed the audience by also singing the UK entry from 2009 and a Portuguese Eurovision classic.
The second act was also from Slovenia, this year’s 16-year-old entrant Eva Boto.
