The Eurovision Song Contest is Europe’s favourite TV show and for its sixtieth anniversary edition, stars from contests past from across the continent tuned in to watch the show. 

France 2012 Eurovision act Anggun had sass for days on her live tweet commentary, giving this particularly brutal read to the UK’S Electro Velvet:

Anggun’s favourite from the class of Eurovision 2015 were Italy, Latvia, Belgium and of course the eventual winner Måns Zelmerlöw:

Swedish stars turned out in force to support Måns with Sarah Dawn Finer, Eurovision 2011 act Eric Saade and Eurovision 2009 act Malena Ernman showing their pride for Sweden’s hero amongst others:

Sweden’s highest scoring act in history Loreen sent her praises to Måns through her Facebook page:

CONGRATULATIONS fis Månsan :)You ruled, you rocked and you’re soo worth it. proud!!! ! 🙂 You stand for what is right! #wearetheheroesofourtime ?? love you Gemini

While Norway’s 2013 act Margaret Berger shared a sweet congrats message through her Twitter:

The Swedish hero wasn’t the only act receiving support though. Germany Elaiza sent luck to ill-fated Ann Sophie who rounded the act after all 40 votes with nil points for the first time since 2003.

Bald geht’s los! Eurovision Song Contest – Building Bridges! Wir drücken Ann Sophie ganz fest die Daumen für heut Abend!…

Spain’s 2014 act Ruth Lorenzo was sending all the love to Edurne and ‘Amanecer’ and also spared little love for Lativa’s Aminata Savadogo:

She wasn’t the only Spanish star sending Edurne their love, with Rosa Lopez and Pastora Soler among those caught cheering Edurne on in an Instagram video shared through Lorenzo’s account.

Empieza Eurovision!!!!!!!!!!!

Greece’s 2005 winner and 2015 spokesperson Helena Paparizou also showed her support for Maria-Elena Kyriakou on Twitter:

Russia’s 2008 winner Dima Bilan shared this post backing Polina Gagarina, who passed his record for the most points scored by any Russian entry in the history of the contest:

This is the third time I’ve seen someone write Lativa instead of Latvia on this website..

Damn, poor Edurne….not even in the Top 10. I guess it was the lack of promotion because she only focused on promoting Amancer in Spain 🙁

@Erin – Based on his songs and his speaking, I think that is genuinely his English. Still, it is better than Polina’s and Peter Nalitch’s!

@mad-professor you’re right, no love for British songs but it’s because they are boring. We are great are writing ordinary subtle MOR songs that just dont always suit the big epic performance styles that are popular in the contest, The UK is out of touch with Eurovision. Different isn’t always better and putting a kids song on stage with a plastic production was never going to cut it. It’s fun, and I’m sure entertained millions last night (it certainly entertained me) but it was never going to do well in terms of points. It just jarred with everything else.

Last night proved that the UK really does stand no chance at Eurovision; the UK sending something different and new comes 24th, Germany sending a modern British song comes dead last.

Did Dima Bilan just ‘google translate’ or is this what we call ‘Lazy English’ in Russian?
