Ukraine came in first place thanks to the Kalush Orchestra wowing the audience and voters at home, meanwhile the UK came in second place thanks to Sam Ryder and his smash-hit Space Man.

Adele's rescheduled Vegas residency will begin in November

Adele has announced the new dates for her Las Vegas shows. The singer, who cancelled her residency in Sin City at the Colosseum earlier this year due to production issues, took to Instagram to announce that she would be finally taking to the stage in November for a string of shows spanning across three months. Adele said in the post she understood that her decision to cancel was horrible for her fans, but the grammy-winner insisted it was the right call, adding she would be giving fans the absolute best of her.

Ed Sheeran sent fans crazy with his surprise appearance at Latitude festival. The singer came out during Snow Patrol's headline set to perform a couple of tracks along with the band – which features Johnny McDaid, Ed's long-time songwriting partner. Ed and the rock group joined forces to perform the hit song Bad Habits, which Ed and Johnny wrote together for Ed's latest record Equals, as well as Snow Patrol's 2009 hit track Just Say Yes.

Speaking of surprise appearances, Kanye West appeared at Rolling Loud festival this weekend despite previously cancelling his headline slot. The rapper, who legally changed his name to Ye, took to the stage to perform alongside Lil Durk for their new track which also features Cardi B. Ye and Lil Durk also performed the song, Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1. Ye initially cancelled his headline set at Rolling Loud less a week before it was due to happen, leading to Kid Cudi taking his place. However, Cudi's set didn't exactly go to plan as the rapper walked off during his performance after fans were throwing items onto the stage. Rolling Loud then released a statement in support of Cudi.

The documentary, which has been in production for a few months, is also thought to be taking a closer look of Robbie's struggles in his personal life at the height of his fame.
