Germany’s Lena Meyer-Landrut has won the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest, edging out Turkey and Romania.
Meyer-Landrut, who turned 19 during the competition in Norway, sang the upbeat, dance-floor friendly “Satellite,” which was one of the favorites to win.
This is the second time that Germany has won in the songfest’s 55-year history. It will host next year’s contest.
This year’s competition was overshadowed by the continent’s financial woes, with four countries pulling out for lack of funds.
The contest is decided by a panel of judges and telephone voting by the 39 participating countries.
