Mae Muller in humiliating Eurovision defeat at home as Sweden win – but fans slam the result a ‘fix’ | The Sun

EUROVISION fans have been left devastated as Mae Muller suffered a humiliating defeat to Sweden.

Saturday night's song contestant came live from the M&S Bank Arena in Liverpool on behalf of Ukraine.

26 countries performed during the show, which ran for more than four hours, competing for the trophy and chance to host next year's Eurovision.

Mae Muller, 25, was the final act to perform and closed the show with her track 'I Wrote A Song'.

Despite her favourable place to perform, Mae lost out to Sweden's Loreen who scooped the crown for a second time.

The UK finished in second-last place with 24 points compared to Sweden's whopping 583.

Despite the result, fans have said how Mae should be 'proud' of her performance and representing the country – but branded the result a 'fix'.

One said: "Massive fix for 50 years of ABBA next year."

A second wrote: "Nahhhh fix. Finland was much better."

A third penned: "Eurovision is a fix, shouldn’t be allowing contestants who have won it before to compete again, unfair on the up and comers who have no publicity yet."

The voting process for the Eurovision involves the viewers' votes but also factors in each country's jury vote to determine the overall winner.

Mae looked sensational donning a see-through corset to wow the Liverpool crowd.

She received rapturous applause for the jam-packed performance which featured incredible staging and top-notch choreography.

Not afraid to show her cheeky side, her bubbly personality shone through as she pulled a series of faces to the camera whilst having the time of her life on stage.

The Eurovsion Song Contest opened with a huge collaboration featuring none other than the Princess of Wales.

Kate played a pre-recorded instrumental piece which was recorded at Windsor Castle earlier this month.

Graham Norton commentated on the show and also co-hosted with Hannah Waddringham, Julia Sanina and Alesha Dixon.

However, fans were left complaining to the BBC as they "couldn't hear" Graham Norton's commentary.

They complained how Graham, 60, and Mel Giedroyc's commentary was being drowned out for those at home.

Five Liverpool-born tracks were also performed during the song contest.

Fans were left delighted when they spotted familiar faces who performed a rendition of You'll Never Walk Alone.
