It's Eurovision time again, kids! This year's contest held in Lisbon saw Cyprus finish 2nd, their best result so far, ditto for the Czech Republic who finished 6th – good on 'em!
The notable thing though was that Israel won, their first top 5 placing in over a decade. Why is it notable? Well, Israel won Eurovision in the year I was born, in the year I turned 20 and first started watching it (1998), and now they have won again in the year I turn 40. So now you know.
As always, just so you know one thing stays constant in this crazy world, I have updated my Eurovision stats map. Enjoy.
