What did you think of the Eurovision result?

Andy Abraham is singing for Britain

The Eurovision Song Contest took place on Saturday night - but what did you think of it?

Millions of people tuned in to watch Russia win the competition - and see UK entry Andy Abraham come joint last.

But what do you think about the result?

Should Andy have won or was Russia the best act in the competition? Perhaps you think another singer was worthy of the title?

"I think if we have a funnier entry for Eurovision (instead of suits) we may have a better chance of coming higher than last place."

Ellen, 11, Derbyshire, England

"I think the only reason we did so badly was because we sent a rubbish song. Poland and Germany deserved better. Even Scooch got more points than Andy. Norway should have won!"

Jack, 12, Derbyshire, England

"I can't believe it! Andy Abraham gave the best performance he has ever done and still he comes last! Sir Terry was right, it's no longer a music competition, it's a political competition. I don't think it is very fair. Don't get me wrong, Russia were good but not as good as the UK!"

Molly, 11, Manchester, England

"I don't think we should enter Eurovision again because the rest of Europe is only voting for the countries they like rather than the song. Obviously nobody likes the UK as our song was much better than the winners and we came last. Anyway, Denmark should have won."

Charlotte, 11, Cardiff, Wales

"I did not support the UK or Russia, I supported Greece and am happy that they won third place."

Marina, 8, Brussels, Belgium

"I think Dustin the Turkey should have won it!!!!! I wanted Greece or Russia to win - I was happy with the result."

Eleanor, 13, Ireland

"I think that they shouldn't say which countries the singers come from so countries will actually vote for the best song!"

Charlotte, 12, Bridgend, Wales

"Russia shouldn't have won. I think the pirate song was good. I think that most children will agree with me. I had my friends over to watch it and they agreed with me."

Jess, 10, March, England

"I think it is really unfair because everyone else votes for who is near them, but we have got no-one next to us so it is unfair."

Mia, 12, London, England

"I wasn't surprised with the result. I had a feeling that we were going to lose, but thanks to San Marino and Ireland we didn't get 0 points like some years!"

Jessica, 11, Bexley, England

"Andy was better than a lot of the other contestants, we deserved to be further up than last! All the other countries vote for their next door neighbours, not on ability to sing!"

Sarah, 13, Doncaster, England

"I think it's really unfair that we came last because Andy was really good, but the other countries don't vote for the best song they vote for their favourite country."

Sofie, 12, London, England

"I thought that Russia deserved to win. Great Britain did well just to get into the final because Ireland didn't. Congrats to Russia!!!"

Gemma, 11, Merseyside, England

"I wish each year we could win it but while it's unfair, we won't. Maybe we should not do the contest to show we are unhappy."

Hamish, 9, Cambridge, England

"It was really disappointing that we came joint last. Andy was really good, but I just don't think the song was right for Eurovision."

Mairi, 12, Glasgow, Scotland

"I don't think it was fair at all because people don't vote for the song anymore, it's all to do with politics and things like that. I thought the Russian act was good but not better than ours! It's not a fair competition!"

Charlotte, 12, Derry Hill, England

"I can't believe Andy came last he was really good, but 14 points is the best the UK has done in ages. The voting isn't fair because countries vote for other country who they are friends with and not ones that can sing well!!"

Stephanie, 13, Cambridge, England

"We lost, we came DEAD last with Poland and Germany on 14 points. I think it is more than just a singing comp, they all hate United Kingdom and Andy did good and Spain were awful and they got, like, 50 points."

Susan, 12, Scotland

"I hate the Eurovision because we NEVER win and Andy was wonderful on Saturday and we should be proud. The only reason we lost is because the politics in England and the United Kingdom!!!!!!"

Clio, 10, Hemel Hempstead, England

"The Eurovision Song Contest is humiliating for we English. We have no friends, we put out one of the best singers in the world, he gives it his all and we still fall flat on our face because no-one will vote for us. All of the other countries are very biased."

Stuart, 11, Watford, England

"Eurovision isn't a music contest anymore - it's a joke. I definitely didn't watch it last night! I would much rather watch Doctor Who and I don't care about Eurovision."

Alice, 13, Belfast Northern Ireland

"My friends are coming round for a sleepover so we are watching it together on my projector!"

Alice, 10, Northants, England

"No, I will definitely NOT be watching it! I don't see why they put it on instead of Doctor Who; Doctor Who is way better!"

Lauren, 10, Penarth Wales

"Of course I will watch! I think Andy's great but doubt we'll win because the competition is tough. I can't wait to see the weird and wacky costumes!!"

Amy, 11, Knutsford England

"No, I think Eurovision is very boring and not many people watch it at my school either."

Rhianna, 11, London, England

"Of course I will be watching it, it's great."

Brad, 9, Rotherham, England

"Yes, I'm going to watch it! I'm going for France"

Tara, 9, Melbourne, Australia

"NO!!!! I can't believe they've cancelled Doctor Who for this. IT'S TERRIBLE!!"

Titus, 11, Wigan, England

"I don't like Eurovision at all! England never win! They've only won twice I think but that was ages ago!!"

Duncan, 12, Surrey, England

"I think that we have a good chance of winning the Eurovision song contest because Andy is a good singer but if the song isn't very good and the routine isn't very good then our chance of winning will suddenly fade away."

Sophie, 10, Herne Bay, England

"I think that the UK have a good chance this year!"

Niamh, 9, Newtown St.Boswells, Scotland

"I don't think that Britain stands a chance of winning because they haven't won in ages and there rubbish compared to other countries."

Oliver, 7, Salford, England

"I'll definitely be watching it. I wish that Dustin the turkey was still in it though!"

Katy, 12, Coleraine, Northern Ireland.

"I will but we won't win, we never have. We maybe could if the countries chose because of the songs instead of the countries that the have peace with."

Abbey, 10, Shrewsbury, England

"I don't often watch it but Andy was good in the X Factor so it would be cool to watch it. We should win it because we never do, Andy can lead us to victory!"

Sophie, 13, Peterborough, England
