Who won the Eurovision Song Contest in 2017?

Portugal won with Salvador Sobral.

The country has taken part in Eurovision a total of 48 times since their first appearance in 1964.

They were the longest running contestants never to have won the competition, having placed highest back in 1966 when they came sixth.

This has now been firmly changed by Salvador’s success as the West European country picked up its first victory in Kiev.
