Portugal won the contest, so off to sunny Portugal will go next year's events! Read the Guardian's view of the final competition and the songs that were all over the musical map:

How the voting was tabulate-there was a judged portion and a live portion for the voting.

The final outcome was decided by a 50:50 split between professional juries and televoting from all 42 participants. The jury votes were decided during the Jury Final on Friday night, the televotes were decided during the actual live show.
I'd think footy fans will love to go to Portugal for Eurovision in 2018. There's a museum named for that famous Portuguese player, whose name is also on an airport. Anticipate social media selfies.
This was Portugal's first win in Eurovision since participating in the annual contest from 1964.
Frozen? Not I. Love hot drinks and ice rinks.

However, some countries won't be able to access the Youtube Live Stream of the Grand Final. Canada is on the list:
I highly recommend that viewers seek out the daily LIsbon Today videos on Youtube-you'll see images of the Eurovision zone and outdoor scenery plus see footage from rehearsals and behind the scenes action.
Spotted an interesting related article on Eurovision voting by countries-The Economist has determined a pattern of voting amongst many countries that send performers to Eurovision:
