Eurovision 2024 has concluded after a packed night of performances which saw the Switzerland singer Nemo crowned the winner.

Speaking after accepting the trophy Nemo said: “I want to say thank you so much – I hope this contest can live up to its promise and continue to stand for peace and dignity for every person in this world.”

Croatia's Baby Lasagna came in second place with their song 'Rim Tim Tagi Dim' which saw them awarded 547 points.
