Justs finishes fifteenth in Eurovision

Latvian singer Justs Sirmais put in a good performance at the 2016 Eurovision song contest in Stockholm on Saturday, securing fifteenth spot.

While voting using an unusual and confusing new system turned into a three-way battle between Russia, Australia and eventual winners Ukraine, Justs' song "Heartbeat" earned a respectabe mid-table finish.

Social media, which as usual was abuzz with Eurovision comment, agreed that Justs managed a good performance which, after several years of not even making the final, represented a better result than usual.

Now back on home soil, the singer is expected to reveal his future plans in coming days.
