The winners of Eurovision have been announced. Congratulations Dami Im!

All of our emotions are swirling and we don’t know how to feel.

The winner of 2016 Eurovision has been announced and Jamala from Ukraine has taken the top spot.

But.

Dami Im – our majestic, talented, wonderful, Australia representative – was voted second.

Yes, that’s right.

In a music competition for European talent, our Dami Im absolutely crushed it.

Eurovision reported that with hundreds of thousands of people watching from across the globe, it was always going to be a tight contest.

“However, in the end there could be just one winner and that was Jamala from Ukraine who took victory with 534 points,” they wrote.

“In second place was the favourite of the juries Australia with 511 points, Dami Im’s Sound Of Silence, and Russia came third with 491 points, You Are The Only One sung by Sergey Lazarev.

Watch Dami Im perform at Eurovision. Oh, so beautiful. (Post continues after video.)

“The new voting system brought one of the most thrilling finishes to the contest, as Australia had stormed into the lead with the jury votes, but the public televoting overturned that and edged Ukraine into a 23 point lead, and not even the televoting favourite Russia could overtake either of them.

But, Dami, she will forever be in our Eurovision hearts:
