Sweden has won the Eurovision Song Contest 2023!

The winning nation was represented by Loreen, who beat out 25 other countries in the final with their track 'Tattoo' to secure victory at the 67th edition of the popular music event.

When all the jury and televoting results were in, Sweden topped the leaderboard with a whopping 583 points.

Second place went to Finland with a respectable 526 points.

Germany finished last in the final with just 18 points.

Relive Sweden's remarkable performance below:

This year's final emanated from the Liverpool Arena in (funnily enough) Liverpool in the United Kingdom. The honor was bestowed on the UK after last year's winning nation, Ukraine, was unable to host the competition due to the ongoing war.

Therefore, the responsibility fell to the runners-up, the United Kingdom, who won the 2022 content with Sam Ryder's 'SPACE MAN'.

Throughout the week, those visiting the EuroVillage in Liverpool have been able to get into the spirit of the contest and watch live acts like the Lightning Seeds and Sophie Ellis-Bextor.

This year's theme for the contest was "United by Music".

And at the start of this evening's proceedings, hosts Julia Sanina, Hannah Waddingham, Alesha Dixon, and Graham Norton revealed that Luxembourg has officially announced that it will be rejoining the competition for the first time since 1993. The nation is set to rejoin the contest in 2024.

The evening also saw a number of Eurovision legends come together to perform a series of hits by iconic Liverpool legends. Stars like Sonia, Cornelia, and Dadi wowed viewers and the live crowd with a stunning setlist that ended with an incredible rendition of 'You'll Never Walk Alone'.

Amazingly, that wasn't the best part of the show... that would be this gem:

But for now, congratulations to Sweden! We'll see you next year!
