This year’s Eurovision was more dramatic than ever.

Won by Switzerland’s Nemo with a sensational hybrid of hip-hop and opera, the 68th contest was held in Malmö, Sweden.

The 24-year-old singer became the first non-binary artist to win Eurovision with an impressive score of 591 points.

But the evening was not without controversy as pro-Palestine protesters chanted outside the venue and the Netherlands’ entry, Joost Klein, was disqualified.

Here are the best photos from the night.
