Mans' 'Heroes' was easily the most slick and distinctive performance of the night

On receiving his trophy from last year's winner Conchita Wurst, he continued her message of equality, saying, "I want to thank you all for voting. We are heroes. Whoever we love, whatever we believe in, we are all heroes."

Mans is already a star in his home nation, and looks set for global success now, with the Eurovision audience of 200 million viewers stretching from the UK to Australia, who also enjoyed participating in the contest for the first time.
