Those countries are as follows; Albania, Armenia, Greece, Georgia, Russia, Romania, Hungary, Serbia, Belgium and Estonia.

But of course the Eurovision isn’t the Eurovision without a host of wacky moments and mind-boggling performances.
Here is what we learned from last night’s show:
1. Real-life Katniss Everdeen represented Georgia.
Georgia’s entry Nina Sublatti sung Warrior as real-life Katniss Everdeen.
Or was it Miley Cyrus?
Wait … sorry it was Yzma from Emperor’s new groove.
2. Hungary has the most unfortunate hashtag (or as the say in Eurovision, hashflag).
You ok #hun?
A gazillion "U ok, #Hun ?" tweets please. Thank you kindly.— Dave Moore (@DaveTodayFM) May 19, 2015
Minus craic. To be fair, I'm no fun when I'm Hungary either. #Eurovision
Hope you're ok #Hun— Michelle Mc Mahon (@McMahonMichelle) May 19, 2015

3. Horses can gamble and use ATMs in Vienna.
To show viewers around the streets of beautiful Vienna, Eurovision presenters decided to strap go pro cameras on to the heads of a dog, cat and horse - as you do.
Turns out that horses love to gamble, and dogs are really into skateboarding.
Although, we have to take claim for the original Eurovision horse.
4. Finland continue to rock out.
Who knew the Finnish were such rock enthusiasts?
Remember these rock winners from 2006?
Although their song was only 85 seconds long, Finland were a popular choice on Twitter.
The band members have autism and Down’s syndrome, and got together in a workshop for adults with learning disabilities.
5. Johnny Logan was born in Australia.
Shocked? We were!
Johnny Logan was born in Australia 😱😰 I feel robbed ... #Eurovision2015— Anna O'Donoghue (@AnnaVDesigns) May 19, 2015
And we weren't the only ones:

Johnny Logan was born in Australia????? SAY IT AINT SO. He's ours. #eurovision— Orla Therese (@dozyjosie_) May 19, 2015
Hold us now …
6. Russia continues to be controversial.
After they were booed on stage last year we were all expecting another controversy this year, and it came in the form of LGBT pride flags.
7. Conchita Wurst has the fastest growing hair in showbiz.
Marty said it best, “did Conchita get the hair done?”
From this …
to this …
The tricks of the trade from the Eurovision queen bee.
8. The police in Moldova have a very unique uniform.
Oh Eurovision, you never disappoint.
