The final result for the Eurovision Song Contest 2015 is in and some countries will be disappointed that the didn’t do as well as they expected. In fact Austria’s The MakeMakes and Ann Sophie from Germany not only finished in dead last but they will also join the exclusive club of songs to have scored no points at all.

Germany’s Unser Song Fur Osterreich Final took place tonight and after eliminating six acts in the first two rounds it was wildcard selection Ann Sophie’s ‘Black Smoke’ who would battle it out against Andreas Kummert’s ‘Heart of Stone’ for the win.
