    The song is AVERAGE, well GOOD, but NOT FOR THE WINNING!
    We all know why is he won…..I don’t have anything about any kind of pupils but this song IS NOT WINNING SONG!!!
    SANNA you ARE the REAL WINNER OF ESC 2014!!!

  4. Congratulations Conchita ! 🙂

    But the truth is she should have not win.
    I’m happy for the symbol. But, as everybody has already said here, this is not a winning song… So I’m also disappointed…

    I miss Loreen so much. This was what I call a great one. This was just 2 years ago, but it was still a “Song” Contest… It’s a pity this is not the same anymore…

  5. great song great performance, It reminds old times, I guess people missed ballads…so nice

  6. congratulions with the vicory i love the songs so much 🙂

    Arka, Jury and Televotes both favoured Conchita. An the Netherlands were also vote as 2nd from both sides. It happens that you won’t like the winner. That happens to all of us from time to time.

  8. BRAVO CONCHITA!!!!! Well deserved win!!!! Finally someone wins without the political crap!!!

    And hopefully this serves as an example that people have to be respected regardless of who they are, what is their gender, where do they come from, etc.

    FINALLY A DESERVING WINNER IN THE EUROVISION SONG CONTEST!!!
