Buranovskiye Babushki came second with 'Party For Everybody', which earned the Russian grandmothers 259 points, while Serbian Željko Joksimović was third with his track 'Nije Ljubav Stvar', ending up with 214 points.
Irish entry Jedward failed to replicate
2011's top ten placing for their song 'Lipstick'
, with this year's 'Waterline' ending up in 19th place with 46 points.
The UK's Engelbert Humperdinck, however, had to settle for only 12 points for his performance of 'Love Will Set You Free', leaving him in second to last place, in front of Norway.
Humperdinck's position saw him fall short of Blue's 11th place success at last year's Eurovision Song Contest in Düsseldorf, Germany.
However, the crooner managed to top 'That Sounds Good To Me' by Josh Dubovie, which finished in last place at the 2010 competition in Oslo, Norway.
