In what was viewed by an estimated 125 million people around the world, the 2011 Eurovision Song Concert was full of surprises.
Although the Irish duo of Jedward appeared strong favourites entering the competition, it was Azerbaijan’s pairing of Eldar and Nigar that proved victorious. Their song, entitled “Running Scared”, racked up 221 points from the votes of opposing countries.
Italy finished in second place, while Sweden was closely behind in third.
Following Azerbaijan’s historic victory, next year’s contest will be hosted in their capital city of Baku.
