The Eurovision Song Contest 2015 was the 60th edition of the annual Eurovision Song Contest musical event. The contest took place in Vienna, Austria, following Conchita Wurst’s victory in the 2014 edition with her song “Rise Like a Phoenix”. This was the second time that Austria hosted the contest after holding its 1967 edition also in Vienna. The contest consisted of two semi-finals, which took place on 19 and 21 May, and a final, held on 23 May 2015. The shows were presented by Mirjam Weichselbraun, Alice Tumler and Arabella Kiesbauer while Conchita Wurst was hosting the green room.
Forty countries were participating in the contest, with Australia making its first appearance, and Cyprus, the Czech Republic, and Serbia returning. Ukraine, however, announced their withdrawal due to financial and political reasons around the Ukrainian crisis.
Sweden won the contest with Måns Zelmerlöw’s “Heroes”. Italy won the viewers’ vote with Russia in second place, but Sweden’s win among the jury groups was enough to overturn the viewers’ preference This was Sweden’s second win in three years and sixth overall. For the very first time, top 3 of the contest all scored 280 points or better, Russia’s entry “A Million Voices” became the first non-winning Eurovision song to score over 300 points and Italy’s entry “Grande amore” became the first song to achieve top three with no English lyrics since 2012. Also, Austria and Germany became the first countries since 2003 to score nul points at the final. Austria is also the first host country to score nul points, and the first host and previous winner to come last since 1958.
