Let's have a look at the finalists and their placings in the final. The whole Top-3 trio Portugal, Bulgaria and Moldova made their best result ever, which I find wonderful. It's always a pleasere when a new country wins and some other breaks the previous record.

Winners (finalists)

Belgium can be happy, their third  consegutive Top-10 finish, and second in Top-5.
Romania scored its best in six years.
Hungary was its 3rd best ever.
Sweden scored sixth Top-5 in seven years.....
Croatia scored its best since 2006
Norway got it's fourth Top-10 in five years... 
Netherlands was again around 9th-11th, third time in five years (add the silver in 2014)
UK got its best since Blue in 2011.
Germany gets better every year: 27th, 26th and now 25th.... :-)

Losers (finalists)

Italy was expecting better so 6th place might be a let down but we have to remember

France got their 2nd best since 2010 but they expected better
Spain got its worst ever. First last place since 1999. Fifth last place in overall.
