Keep my room ready for me København!! Denmark wins!!!

The best possible present for me on my last night in København just arrived! Emmelie deForest, “Only Teardrops” and Denmark have won the 58th annual Eurovision Song Contest in Malmø. If I start saving now, I hope to be right back in this same sweet guest house room at Carsten’s one year from now!!

As predicted, the organizers arranged the order of voting countries to keep the suspense up as long as possible. After the first several sets of points, Denmark was doing ok but not in the lead. Then the points began to accumulate, she took a lead and never again gave it up. Azerbaijan and Ukraine provided the only real suspense as they constantly swapped the second position, which Azerbaijan finally seized.

Congratulations, Denmark, and thank you!  Now I won’t have to stay away too long…
