The winner:
This was a very close and interesting voting, though it became a two horse race towards the end with United Kingdom claiming their 12th gold medal! They are now only 1 gold behind Sweden. New Zealand took home the silver - their first medal ever - and Albania was back among the medallist winning the bronze. Norway and Denmark rounded out the top 5.

United Kingdom debuted way back in GM.03 with Sugababes taking home the bronze medal. Several other top 10 results followed, before they could claim victory for the first time with Des'ree in GM.19. Other victories followed in GM.26, .38, and .40 with Shayne Ward, James Morrison & Nelly Furtado and Duffy respectively, before the current HoD, Per, took over the UK in GM.60. In only his second participation for the country, he won its 5th gold medal, when Alexandra Burke finished on top. Adele and Lawson brought the UK more gold in GM.64 and .86 respectively, before Olly Murs - with the help from Demi Lovato - and Ellie Goulding won back-to-back editions as recently as GM.109 and .110. Years & Years then won in GM.117 with Adele taking home the trophy for a second time just two editions later., and now Ed Sheeran has done it again for the Brits. United Kingdom has now taken part 127 times, and is thus one of the most faithfull countries in GM. Their track record is also very impressive. They have been to 113 finals, reaching the top 10 in 60 of those and winning a total of 24 medals! This gold medal is the 8th for Per, who also brought Australia gold in the past. Well done United Kingdom, Ed Sheeran and Per!   


Congratulations Ed!

See you all in United Kingdom!
