British Eurovision contestant Molly Smitten-Downes has tweeted thanks to her fans after coming 17th in the competition:
Massive congratulations to Austria. What a brilliant night! Thanks for all the support... Now time to party!! Love you all. Xx
Austria was ridiculed for sending a drag queen to Eurovision but Conchita Wurst, previously Tom Neuwirth, won for the first time since 1966.
UK hopeful Molly Smitten-Downes had been among those tipped to place highly, but the night was for Austrian drag-queen Conchita Wurst.
The UK has had some embarrassing disasters at Eurovision, from out-of-tune twins to dubious experiments with rap.
