Eurovision 2014 may be over, but your reactions to all the drama will live on forever. In honour of the thrills, the spills, and all the crazy, here are 20 common reactions y’all had during this year’s contest.

1. You were like this when Lise and Ola Sand were taking the selfie…

2. Then France decided to join in the selfie craze during their performance…

The hashtag was appropriate

3. You saw the rainbow flag at the end of Russia’s performances and were all like….

3. You heard everyone booing after Russia’s performances…

4. Then you felt sorry for the Tolmachevy Twins…

They really didn’t deserve it…

5. You cried when your favourite act didn’t go through…

6. Iceland qualifying put you in shock…

7. But not as much as seeing that Lithuania did better in the second semi-final than Israel:

8. You cried when Israel and Ireland did not qualify…

9. Austria qualified and you fangirled…

10. Poland came on, and boobs were everywhere, and you felt a little weird…

…or you really enjoyed it…

11. You were angry at the hot mess that was Italy, so you went kinda cray…

For the purposes of this gif, Emma was modern female Caesar

12. You danced like crazy to a couple of the entries…

Emma Marrone knows how to werk it

…You really did…

13. You gave the hand to those who underestimated Conchita and her awesomeness…

14. You were very happy with all of the people televoting for Conchita…

15. You were anxious to see how Eastern Bloc countries would react to giving points to Russia…

16. You saw the face that the spokesperson from Armenia made at giving points to Russia and…

17. AND CONCHITA WINS!!!!!!!

18. You knew that San Marino’s victory was qualifying, and that Valentina’s result in the grand final didn’t matter…

19. You were a hardcore believer in Conchita from the start and you had the biggest “I told you so” moment ever when she won…

20. Alas, the haters continue to spew their hate…

21. The haters lost, however, so here you go…

# 18 was DEFINITELY me! I believe she got robbed last year when she didn’t get into the final!

09 for me, but not for Austria, for Belarus. I COMPLETELY fangirled.
They laughed at us ‘You and your Belarussian mess will NEVER qualify’…
…TAKE THAT !! Right on your face 😛

If Rise Like a Phoenix was a legit winning song then I would take less issue with the victory but most of the independent journalists admit that it wasn’t the song that won. Therefore it was a statement victory. Look through the gif above and you will see an expectation that we were all pulling for Conchita just because we’re enlightened. There certainly is an emerging definition of ‘correct’ thought with little tolerance for any variation without being called a “hater”.

If I may say so, I guess everyone’s holding on to the wrong end of the stick: this is not meant to be a Good vs. Evil debate, nor should it be about tolerance. By making it a Good vs. Evil thing, you’re wrong from the beginning, as we’re discussing equality and not any moral standing. By making it about tolerance (this is a little more subtle, but I honestly hope you will get it), we’re also wrong as it is not we are supposed to “put up with”/”reject” behaviours or actions done (un)intentionally for or against us, but real… Read more »

If you´re against racism, I don´t think any of the comments against Russia should have been made. That´s just as bad as that Aram MP3 would say something about Conchita Wurst.

And I agree with most of them! AND I said something like “I KNEEEW IT” when the Netherlands came 2nd 😀

Power to #18! Very true!

Here’s hoping Kati Bellowitsch hosts/co-hosts the event next year.

Haha that gif of Emma dancing, I love it! Emma is great, such a pity her live performance wasn’t that good, but I still love her song.
And I so agree with #18 Valentina achieved what no other sammarinese artist ever did, that alone was already a victory. I was hoping for a better placing for her though. But anyway, here’s to a better placing for San Marino next year!

@ MTD Well, nobody was talking about bloc voting here. That’s something I don’t like, but a minor problem compared to many other thing going on in Europe these days. And of course everybody has the right to say whatever they want. Vladimir Zhirinovsky can say “50 years ago the Red Army entered Austria and then we left. We should have stayed”. Timati has the right to write on Instagram “I don’t want to have to explain to my kids why there are two men kissing in the street or why there is a woman with a painted beard winning… Read more »

Well, Helena won and Sanna didn’t (just saying)

So, Russia is the one to blame again? Hah. Goodbye tolerance then and that is not respecting Russia’s stance. What happened with “this is a democracy and everyone can say anything”? Someone clearly booed Russia on the evening. Give me a break! Russia is your bad guy now. This is hilarious! And the ESC is “bringing together the countries of the EBU around a “light entertainment programme”. This “light” programme is political when Russia votes for its neighbors and vice versa but it’s totally fine when UK votes Ireland, Sweden – Denmark – Norway – Finland etc. And what is… Read more »

Let me just say – HAHAHA. You’ve been hating on Sanna for months now and she finished third. Do you think your beloved Helena would have been able to do that? NO. You said Belgium was gonna win and you said Sanna would flop. LOL

@Dhani: Because of vírus called Helena Papacrap the website is running with problems that is why … but don’t cry just jump on the trampoline and rise up … just make sure you don’t hit your head against the roof 🙂 I found the reactions incredibly funny … but the Dutch song is awesome even if the biggest non-gay song you’ll ever find . it’s for all kinds of public something hardcore gay fans fringe about that all the time .. yeah … diversity and tolerance … right … it’s all about (only) me LOL Congrats Tom Sausage 🙂 Looking… Read more »

@MTD “Live your life but let the others live too. I’m reading many comments regarding the tolerance for the gay people, but you do not to take a break. Really.” Let’s get things right. I’ve never been an activist and I’ve never attended to a gay pride parade. That said, I’d like to point out something about what you call gay propaganda: gays don’t care about those who ignore them, they just care about those who want to restrict their rights. If you support the restriction of ANY kind of rights (not only gay rights, of course) be prepared for… Read more »

@Woz “If it wasn’t for the policies of countries like Russia, Azerbaijan, Ukraine or Belarus, Conchitas act and message would be dated and out of place. Unfortunately it’s not the case. Are you tired of gay propaganda? Blame those who make it necessary.” Are you serious? This is what I’m talking about – I’ll just copy-paste what you’ve missed in my previous statement: do I really need so much propaganda in my life? I do tolerate you but you need to tolerate my choice of not getting thrilled by your PR of “tolerance”. Live your life but let the others… Read more »

@ MTD Conchita won because she delivered the best performance in the contest, despite of her beard, her sexual orientation and her message. It wasn’t my favourite song in the contest but her performance was flawless and powerfull. And that’s because she won, pure and simple. Her speech was dedicated to everybody who supports freedom of any kind. No, you shouldn’t feel threatened by that. Nobody is going to send you to a gulag for being straight. If it wasn’t for the policies of countries like Russia, Azerbaijan, Ukraine or Belarus, Conchitas act and message would be dated and out… Read more »

What I learned from the Grand Final That the “can’t be caught” moment is here to say, having enabled us to witness the wonderful instant reaction of the Austrian delegation That the televoters of Russia, Ukraine, Georgia and Lithuania dented the myth that ex-USSR states are inherently homophobic That (conversely) the jurors from Armenia, Azerbaijan and Belarus might lack a bit of tolerance, given that none placed Conchita above 20th That Sanna Nielsen is a great sport, leading the cheers for Austria when it was clear her own great chance had gone That Kati Bellowitsch could well be the Petra… Read more »

So much hatred towards Russia. Pure hating. I mean, really? If that’s what you call tolerance, you should really need to see a doctor. Yup, the Eurovision Song Contest was always gay-friendly but now it turned up to be a gay parade by definition. Europe, well done. I do hope that one day, in maybe 2-3 years, this contest will go down the drains and be just another gay event in a gay nightclub. I really do. Its pathetic to see how you march “tolerance” and at the same time you offend everyone else, no matter what the other thinks.… Read more »
