People couldn't decide whether to be amused or annoyed with Australia at the Eurovision Song Contest
There would have been surely nothing more Eurovision, nothing more gloriously non-sensical, than Australia winning a competition it doesn't really belong in.
They didn't though, as Ukraine's Jamala took home the prize with the politically-charged song, '1944'.
Australia, however, (which, if you didn't know, is on the other side of the world) was competing in the Eurovision Song Contest for the second year running.
Despite taking place in a different continent, the event is a smash hit down under, pulling in around three million viewers each year.
Eurovision has been broadcast on Australian network SBS for 30 years. SBS is part of the European Broadcasting Union and that seems to be solid enough for the competition's organisers to allow them a slot.
Australia's entrant for this year's competition was Dami Im, with a song called 'Sound Of Silence'. She seemed to break the unwritten rules of Eurovision by actually putting forward a half-decent tune.

The internet couldn't decide what to make of it all...
Saw Australia though. Cheating by having a good song/singer.

Australia putting a good tune in with someone who can actually sing. They don't know how to do Eurovision properly!
