Sweden’s entry for Saturday’s Eurovision Song Contest, Charlotte Perrelli, finished in a disappointing 18th place amidst calls that the whole competition was a farce with political voting.

Russian Dima Bilan won the contest in Belgrade, helped by high marks from the neighbouring ex-Eastern Bloc countries.

43 countries entered Eurovision which was held in the Serbian capital Belgrade.

Swedes love the competition, particularly Melodifestivalen, a series of shows where Swedes select their winning entry.

Perrelli said afterwards that she was happy with her performance of her song”hero” but refused to be drawn on claims of countries voting for their neighbours.
