Eurovision Song Contest 2014 Grand Final
Copenhagen was chosen as the host city of the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest. The event was held at the B&W Hallerne at the Refshaleøen, under the slogan #JoinUs.
The former shipyard underwent all necessary improvements to be able to host three state-of-the-art television shows in May. The choice was approved by the European Broadcasting Union (EBU/EUROVISION) and the Reference Group, the contest's governing body on behalf of the participating public broadcasters.
26 broadcasters were participating with their contestant in the Grand Final while juries and viewers in 37 participating countries will vote.
In the end, it was Austria's Conchita Wurst to bring home the victory. You might have noticed something a bit unusal with her - she has a beard. This caused quite a stirr all over the world, with support pouring in from superstars such as Elton John, Cher and Jean-Paul Gaultier.
