Loreen of Sweden makes history as first woman to win Eurovision twice
LONDON, UK - Loreen of Sweden has won the Eurovision Song Contest in Liverpool, reported German Press Agency (dpa).
The singer, who previously triumphed in 2012, made history as the first woman, and only the second person, to win the contest twice.
She scored a total of 583 points after the public and jury votes were combined, narrowly beating Finland's Kaarija who scored 526.
Loreen had performed her anthemic dance-pop song "Tattoo" for the international voting public, singing from an illuminated enclosed space on the stage.
Her win means she equals the record held by Irish singer Johnny Logan, who triumphed at the contest in both 1980 and 1987. - BERNAMA-dpa
