Feels bittersweet to me. On one hand I'm very happy that the Netherlands won rather than something like Italy (which I found absolutely terrible). On the other hand, Norway had an absolutely amazing performance, and they got a deserved first place from the public. However, for some reason the jury didn't like it at all and only gave it 40 points, which is why it got 5th in the end.

Want it to be even a bit more bittersweet ? Jury ratings are based on final rehearsal performances and from what I heard Norway had technical difficulties during theirs and weren't allowed to redo it.

Personally I thought the song sounded a bit too similar to Finland's entry from last year. That said Cyprus really went two steps further and pretty much re-entered Fuego with different lyrics this year.
