Emmelie de Forest is celebrating after her song Only Teardrops saw Denmark win the Eurovision Song Contest. Tyler, 61, who represented the UK with Believe In Me, finished 19th out of 26 acts in Malmo, Sweden, with 23 points

Sweden—Denmark emerged victorious Saturday in this year’s Eurovision Song Contest, an annual competition as famous for kitsch outfits, over-the-top stage shows and geopolitical tension as musical qualities. Twenty-year-old Emmelie de Forest won with folksy ballad “Only Teardrops,” which handily beat the closest runners up, Azerbaijan and Ukraine.

“It’s fantastic.…It’s indescribable to win for your country,” Ms. de Forest told Danish broadcaster DR after her victory. “I think this will be fantastic for me and my career.” She was a strong favorite with bookmakers and Eurovision fans ahead of the event.

Thanks to Ms. de Forest’s performance, which was done in bare feet, Denmark now gets to host the contest next year, an honor that gives the country a showcase but also includes considerable costs. Representatives from Sweden joked about the costs of the show during a musical tribute to the nation that also included gags about IKEA, meatballs and the country’s liberal social model.

Look, the point is, these people rock. Vote for them. The End.
