A winner has been crowned in the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest! 

Sweden’s Måns Zelmerlöw was awarded the top prize in the long-running music competition on Saturday for his pop anthem “Heroes.” Russia’s Polina Gagarina claimed second place with “A Million Voices,” and Italy’s Il Volo followed in third with “Grande Amore.”

“I’m so happy and I want to say thank you for voting for me,” Zelmerlöw told the crowd (via BBC). “I want to say we are all ‘Heroes,’ no matter who we love, who we are or what we believe in — we are all heroes.”

Zelmerlöw was favored to win Eurovision, but he was still seemingly pretty surprised once his victory became official.
