EUROVISION fans were devastated as Mae Muller suffered a humiliating loss to Sweden.
Saturday night’s song contestant came live from Liverpool’s M&S Bank Arena on behalf of Ukraine.
26 countries performed during the more than four-hour show, competing for the trophy and a chance to host next year’s Eurovision.
Mae Muller, 25, was the final appearance, closing the show with her song “I Wrote A Song.”
Despite her favorable performance, Mae lost to Sweden’s Loreen, who clinched the title for the second time.
The United Kingdom finished second to bottom with 24 points, while Sweden scored a whopping 583 points.
Despite the result, fans said Mae should be “proud” of her performance and representing the country – but described the result as “fixed”.
One said: “Massive solution for 50 years of ABBA next year.”
A second wrote: “Nahhhh, fixed. Finland was much better.”
A third wrote: “The Eurovision Song Contest is a solution. Participants who have already won it should not be allowed to compete again. It’s unfair to up-and-coming participants who haven’t received public attention yet.”
While a fourth commented: “What an absolute FIX! Mae be proud.”
The voting process for Eurovision includes viewer votes but also takes into account the vote of each country’s jury to determine the overall winner.
Mae looked sensational as she donned a see-through corset to wow Liverpool crowds.
She received thunderous applause for the jam-packed performance with incredible staging and top-notch choreography.
She wasn’t afraid to show her sassy side and her bubbly personality came through as she pulled a series of faces for the camera while having the time of her life on stage.
The Eurovsion Song Contest opened with a major collaboration featuring none other than the Princess of Wales.
Graham Norton commentated on the show and co-hosted with Hannah Waddringham, Julia Sanina and Alesha Dixon.
However, fans had to complain to the BBC as they “couldn’t hear” Graham Norton’s comment.
They complained that Graham, 60, and Mel Giedroyc’s comment was lost on those at home.
Five Liverpool songs were also performed during the song contest.
Fans were thrilled to see familiar faces interpreting You’ll Never Walk Alone.
Former contestants performed on stage including Netta from Israel, Duncan Laurence from the Netherlands, Daði Freyr from Iceland, Mahmood from Italy and Cornelia Jakobs from Sweden.
Last year’s Eurovision entrant Sam Ryder also performed his new title Mountain.
