Norway's Alexander Rybak wins the 2009 Eurovision Song Contest
Norway's Alexander Rybak has won the 2009 Eurovision Song Contest with 387 points.
The Eurovision Song Contest final takes place in Moscow, Russia tonight, and voters in 25 countries are poised to cast their vote for who is competing from their country.
Alexander Rybak from Norway is the favourite to win, closely followed by the contestants from Greece, Turkey, the UK and Azerbaijan.
Graham Norton will be the new commentator for the BBC, as Terry Wogan stepped down from the job last year.
Speaking in the Russian capital, Norton revealed that he had spoken to his predecessor, who commentated on every Eurovision final from 1980.
"Terry rang me to wish me good luck," said the TV presenter. "He advised me to resist having a drink until the fifth song," he added.
For the first time the voting will be split between the public and a panel of musical experts.
